Wherein we actually applaud the Mass. Family Institute's restraint
So you know how the rabidly anti-gay MassResistance group is fighting to have the Bay State's ban on out-of-state same-sex marriages restored? Yea, well in a development that shows just how out-of-step MR is with even the organized "pro-family" community, Massachusetts' other prominent socially conservative groups are actually speaking out AGAINST Brian Camenker and company's latest endeavor!
This from One News Now:
A Massachusetts pro-family advocate finds it "very distressing" that two pro-family groups in the state are choosing not to join in an effort to challenge the Legislature's repeal of a 1913 law that barred out-of-state homosexual couples from getting married in the Bay State.
MassResistance is seeking to collect enough signatures for a referendum petition that would allow Massachusetts residents to vote on the Legislature’s decision to repeal the "1913 law." However, two conservative groups -- Massachusetts Family Institute (MFI) and Catholic Citizenship -- say they will not join in the referendum effort. MFI says it wants to focus instead on promoting "positive pro-family legislation," and argues the "repeal will have a greater impact outside the state than at home."
Dissension in the ranks that have promoted dissension by fostering rank bias. Could it get any more poetic?
A good site is massresistancewatch.blogspot.com. It keeps you up to date what our rabid and wacky friends over there.
