Statement to Towleroad: "I pledge that my wife Diane Olson and I, and the 18,000 other couples who were married in the California prior to Nov. 5, 2009, will be part of a grassroots army of love warriors, and will never stop fighting until all of our rights are won, here in California, and on a Federal level for all of us in every State. Let us take our anger, and our passion to the streets, and never, ever get off. And if the National Democratic party does not, after 35 years of promises to our community, make sure we have full equal rights in this country, the gay divorce you are going to see is the gay community's divorce from the Democratic party.

George Takei reacts: "I am confident that if we go through this again, we will ultimately
prevail and our [State] Supreme Court will go into the dust of history. What the Supreme Court did essentially was maintain an inequality…Only
a year ago, they declared that marriage equality is a fundamental,
