Quote Of The Day: Idaho Gov. Butch Otter

"The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has issued its mandate for enforcement of decisions overturning the Idaho Constitution’s prohibition on same-sex marriage effective at 10 a.m. MDT, 9 a.m. PDT on Wednesday, October 15. I continue to believe that the federal courts are mistaken in abandoning the sanctity of traditional marriage and in undermining the will of Idaho voters and each state’s right to define marriage. But we are civil society that respects the rule of law. We have done all we can through the courts for now to defend traditional marriage in Idaho." - Gov. Butch Otter.

NOTE: Yesterday I reported that Otter said he was considering an appeal to SCOTUS or an en banc review from the Ninth Circuit. His use of "for now" in today's statement seems to indicate that one of those options is still on the table. At any rate, we get a new Wikipedia map in the morning.
