Religious leaders objected to the decisions in both cases. Jennifer Kerns was the official spokesperson for Proposition 8 in California. Representative Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) argued that the decisions ignored the needs of children. Then a group including attorneys and the respondents in Hollingsworth v.
