Same-sex “marriage” opponents appeal before measure goes into effect in March

DC Headlines Examiner: “Stand4MarriageDC and the Alliance Defense Fund, two conservative groups active in the nation’s capital, lodged the appeal on Wednesday. Attorneys for the two organizations placed the appeal in the hopes of allowing the issue of same-sex marriage to be decided by a popular vote. ‘We are appealing because the District’s marriage redefinition law shouldn’t go into effect until voters have the opportunity to vote on a critical matter that affects everyone in the District,’ senior legal counsel Austin R. Nimocks said in a news release picked up by the Washington Post.”
