"That's not only callous, it's lawless. I don't have any fiat over what's the law and what's not the law in this state. And whether I like a bill they pass across the street or not, unless there is a solid legal basis that it is inherently and expressly unconstitutional, I have a duty to enforce it and defend it."

Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens argues why he must defend the state's same-sex marriage ban. His Democratic colleagues in California, Illinois, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Virginia have passed on fighting on behalf of anti-gay laws in court. (via the AJC)
