In the last post I said “But Bush wants to write that restriction into the constitution to remove that right that some (the MA SJC) say they already have but have not been allowed to exercise.”
In actuality, the amendment as it is written goes further than that. The language is worded in such a way that it could be construed to outlaw civil unions as well.
As most people are not against civil unions I see this as a hating-gays amendment. It’s fortunate that our legislative branch hasn’t gone off the deep end with the executive branch. So much for activist judges having the only say in the matter; the amendment is losing in congress.
