Phew. I can’t believe our government was actually considering altering the Constitution to take away the rights of a specific subset of the population. Doesn’t that seem downright...Unamerican? Doesn’t everyone recognize this for the political ploy that it is? Pay no attention to the war in Iraq, illegal wiretapping, rising gas prices, increases in crime, skyrocketing health care costs, a slumping economy....there are dudes marrying dudes!
I, for one, am proud of the fact that my beloved commonwealth was the first state to legalize gay marriage. The right thing to do isn’t always the popular thing to do. Kudos to Ted Kennedy stating it clearly: "A vote for this amendment is a vote for bigotry pure and simple."
