We Are The Champions

For the moment, at least, the Massachusetts Constitution rests easy, unthreatened by an anti-gay marriage amendement.

Here's my favorite quote from the article:

"Gay marriage has begun, and life has not changed for the citizens of the commonwealth, with the exception of those who can now marry," said state senator Brian Lees, a Republican who had been a cosponsor of the amendment. "This amendment, which was an appropriate measure or compromise a year ago, is no longer, I feel, a compromise today."

At the risk of appearing ungrateful for this rare bit of good news, I must respond:


Is it really surprising that the immoral hellscape of public anal sex, child sacrifice, pissing on Bibles and beating of nuns foreseen by gay marriage opponents has failed to appear in Massachusetts? Freed from the clutches of irrational fear by inarguable reality, Lees realizes he's been a fool. He's smarter than Governor Gropinator, at least. Good for him.

And good for Massachusetts. One down, 49 to go.
