On Wednesday, National Organization for Marriage’s Communications Director, Thomas Peters, made this bizarre statement on NOM’s blog:
Prop 8 remains the law in CA. Clerks have been ordered to ignore it.
Perhaps NOM did attempt to “order” the clerks to ignore the court order that allowed same-sex marriages to resume in California, but that hasn’t stopped clerks from issuing marriage licenses to hundreds of loving, committed same-sex couples since the Supreme Court’s ruling in late June.
Reports are that some county clerks’ marriage slots are scheduled out until mid-August due to a huge backlog of same-sex couples who had to wait almost five years while the legal process ran its course.
