John Eastman, an attorney for the anti-gay marriage group the National Organization for Marriage, called the Supreme Court decisions on Proposition 8 and DOMA "judicial tyranny."
“We are manufacturing the right to redefine marriage,” Eastman said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” He added: “That’s judicial tyranny, not the kind of system we have.”
