Thomas Peters, cultural director for the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), believes the Supreme Court will reject the arguments of gay marriage proponents.

The court is considering whether to hear appeals in cases involving the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), Proposition 8 (California's gay marriage ban), and an Arizona law which repealed benefits for the domestic partners of state employees.

Appearing on the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), Peters brushed aside Election Day victories of marriage equality supporters.

“Tell me the sense of how you all are feeling in terms of your attitude at the National Organization for Marriage (NOM),” interviewer Lee Webb asked. “Obviously, the November election was not kind to your organization. As we mentioned, three states approved same-sex marriage.”

“Do you all feel like maybe you're trying to stop an avalanche here with a picket fence?”

“No, no, not at all,” Peters responded. “I think the future of the pro-marriage movement is bright. And I think it's very interesting to look at the contrast between how a lot of pro-gay marriage advocates claim that there's something like a constitutional right to gay marriage. But if you actually look at their legal arguments, they're far more humble and modest.”

“We think that when all is said and done, marriage will have a good day at the Supreme Court. And that's why we're really looking forward to seeing them take up both these cases,” he added. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
