Same-sex marriage opponents and supporters spoke from the steps outside the U.S. Supreme Court about the rulings just announced.

Defenders of Proposition 8 argued that the Supreme Court’s denial of their standing left Proposition 8 as part of the law of California and that they were committed to defending it.
