* "I refuse to let anyone dictate where I exercise my God-given rights of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, I would not move. That would be letting them win."

* "I admit it would be nice to have full acceptance, but I'm not sure picking up and moving would be the answer."

* "Of course I'd move to marry my girl, but only if the marriage is recognized on a federal level, Without federal recognition, the point becomes moot,"

* "I think moving would help only the bigots in the state from which I was moving. Why impose self-segregation? I will stay, and I will fight."

* "I am considering moving to another country if there is a federal ban on same-sex marriage."

* "All other things being equal (employment, cost of living, etc.), hell, yes!"
