So, if you didn't hear that the Massachusetts SJC clarified their ruling, specifically stating that only gay marriage would satisfy the constitution, you must be outside of shouting range of any bigoted authoritarian homophobes.
Okay, perhaps that's being a little harsh.
I haven't heard anyone give me a reason I can respect that gay couples should not be allowed to marry. Most of the arguments seem to reduce to the offensive "well what's to stop people from marrying goats!"
You can cut the fear with a knife. If gays are given their rights... that's one fewer group we're allowed to openly hate.
The horror. The sheer horror.
I'm proud to live in Massachusetts. We take a beating for our unusually liberal population. But some things are just plain right and decent, whether they're popular or not.Posted by James at February 4, 2004 10:14 PM
