Gay Marriage Ban Passes 1st Step in Mass. (AP)
The Massachusetts Legislature today actually passed an amendment banning gay marriage. I’m pleasantly surprised. Governor Romney’s sure to sign it, but his request to the Mass Supreme Court to hold off on its order to allow gay marriage will fall on deaf ears. If those judges aren’t afraid of ordering the Legislature around, what do you suppose the odds are that they respect a governor?
Now we’ll see if they can repeat their feat next year and make the amendment official.
