Joseph Backholm, head of Family Policy Institute of Washington is not happy that gays and lesbians can legally marry in Washington. In a rambling screed via an email blast, Backholm claims that the election proved nothing. He also suggests that they might try to revoke marriage equality at the ballot in the future:

While this change in the law is unfortunate, this debate is not over. While in
any election there is a winner and a loser, the outcome demonstrated that there
is no consensus in Washington State regarding the purpose or definition of marriage.

The Family Policy Institute of Washington, and the millions of Washingtonians who
agree that marriage is between a man and a woman will watch carefully how this law
is implemented, how consequences develop, and how the landscape changes, as we know
it will, particularly in light of the citizen’s right of initiative.
