"This case is about state laws that violate
personal freedoms, are unnecessary government intrusions, and cause
serious harm to loving gay and lesbian couples. As a
Virginian and a conservative, I believe these laws stand against the
very principles of our nation’s founding."
--Theodore Olson, the lawyer for George Bush in Bush v Gore, 2000 (giving Bush the White House) and an ardent supporter and litigator of gay people's right to marry.
