Will Mass. Senate bring marriage to the masses?

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images 200807100756The Massachusetts Senate is today expected to vote on a repeal of the outdated 1913 law that has, up until now, kept out-of-state gays from marrying in the Bay State. Check out this Boston Globe piece for the arguments being put forth on the side of reason:

It remains to be seen if the arguments in favor of fairness, parity with other jurisdictions, expansion of individual rights, and economic growth will be able to triumph over the opposition's "But I want the resident requirement to stay simply because I detest gay marriage!" sole line of logic. Stay tuned for updates.
