The operative word is 'yet'

by Jeremy Hooper

The head of Colorado's big anti-gay group responds to a court order demanding Boulder County stop issuing marriage license while the matter plays out on appeal:

Debbie Chaves of Colorado Family Action was asked for a response to the state court's decision.

"[I think] that is a good ruling to the issue because our Colorado Constitution still stands and our marriage amendment has not been shot down yet," she responds. "It is still in our Colorado Constitution and should be respected just like all of the other laws that are in our Constitution."

[ONN]

The key word there: yet. Her implied eventuality tells me that even Ms. Chaves realizes that the marriage amendment will be "shot down" soon enough.

And she's right. Ms. Chaves is working for a movement that now considers a delay to be a win. Slowly they are starting to process the fact that defeating us is not in their cards.
