Be Prepared!

Same-sex "marriage" news from Massachusetts today.

The Massachusetts State's House and Senate is considering a repeal of the 1913 law which forbids couples from other states from getting married in Massachusetts if the marriages would be illegal in their home states. This was the law that prevented same-sex couples from other states from getting "married" in Massachusetts.

Why is this attempted repeal happening now? Simple: because of the recent California Supreme Court decision. The same-sex marriage activists are trying to confuse the issue. They will argue that there is no point in passing Proposition 8 in California, because even if it passes, same-sex couples will now be able to go to Massachusetts and get "married" anyway. Be prepared for this and don't buy it.

I'd be surprised if the Massachusetts legislature does not repeal the law. They are the same bunch who refused to allow a 2007 constitutional amendment to be put on the ballot despite the fact that a record 170,000 citizens signed the petition. The amendment proposed to overturn Massachusetts' court-imposed redefinition of marriage. But the legislature refused to even allow the citizens to vote on the matter.

Similar to California. The Supreme Court of California decided, 4-3, that marriage can mean a man "marrying" another man. That single person overturned the will of 60% of Californians, not to mention thousands of years of accumulated wisdom.

"Same-sex "marriage" doesn't hurt anybody?" It's already led to a denial of the right of self-government in two states.
