Some gay marriage opponents balk, while couples rush to wed

Some couples rushed to marriage license bureaus and even wed Friday within hours of the Supreme Court ruling that said gay couples can marry anywhere in the country including in the 14 remaining states with bans. Steadfast activists who say traditional marriage is defined as a man and a woman vowed to defend the rights of religious objectors and battle back.

A conservative activist in Ohio pledges to counter “persecution” of opponents while rallying them politically.
