"(On)this issue of marriage I am struck more by our similarities than our differences. - if we can look for a moment past gender and sexuality, we can see in these plaintiffs nothing more or less than our own families"
"Where will this all lead? I know that many suggest we are going down a slippery slope that will have no moral boundaries. To those who truly harbor such fears, I can only say this: Let us look less to the sky to see what might fall; rather, let us look to each other... and rise."
Judge Michael McShane, striking down Oregon's ban on gay marriage.
