Gay Marriage Rights

cheeseSource (605209) writes | more than 10 years ago

I live in MA and am tracking the votes on the Gay Marriage issue. In a nutshell I think creating an exclusive majority as many of the Legislature want to do in Boston is bigotry, pure and simple. Marriage is a commitment between to people based on love. No one should be denied that. So here are the names of those voting for and against each amendment. I'll try to keep this up to date. Maybe afterwards I'll make a map of bigotry for the state of MA. On a side note - this is what a constitution

I live in MA and am tracking the votes on the Gay Marriage issue. In a nutshell I think creating an exclusive majority as many of the Legislature want to do in Boston is bigotry, pure and simple. Marriage is a commitment between to people based on love. No one should be denied that. So here are the names of those voting for and against each amendment. I'll try to keep this up to date. Maybe afterwards I'll make a map of bigotry for the state of MA. On a side note - this is what a constitution is designed for, to protect rights, altering the constitution makes it about as valuable as scratchy toilet-paper. (The ammendments would alter the constitution which gives Gays full and equal rights and would effectively treat them as second class citizens.)

Edit: 2/13/04 - adding the roll call on the 3rd amendment. The convention as been convened until March 11th.

Edit: 3/11/04 - This just in: Majority of Legislature in MA are oficially Bigots.
