Pain in the Mass: Marriaqe ban to be discussed yet again

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images  Time-Zone Usa Massachusetts Images MassachusettsToday in Massachusetts, lawmakers will gather in a Constitutional Convention to once again debate whether a proposed gay marriage ban will reach to the 2008 ballot. And happily, thanks to the intense lobbying of folks like Gov. Deval Patrick, it is being reported that some who were previously in the anti-gay marriage camp have decided to change their stance, making today's too close to call:

Since the measure has already received preliminary approval and will head to voters if it passes this ConCon, "too close to call" is certainly hopeful news for those who are "too close to call anything but married." So let's cross our fingers and hope we'll have an afternoon of celebration, not downtrodden questioning of decency and fairness.

Debate is scheduled to begin at 1pm; Mass. LGBT paper Bay Windows will be live blogging the whole thing:
