Well my husband and I certainly got tears in our eyes over it, but I’ll bet there is some good hard crying going on in fundie-land over this:
A proposed constitutional ban on same-sex marriage was defeated today by a joint session of the Legislature by a vote of 45 to 151, eliminating any chance of getting it on the ballot in November 2008. At least 50 votes were needed to advance the measure.
This is a pretty big thing in my view. Gay Marriage opponents could not even muster the 50 votes they needed. Think about it, that's over 75% of the Massachusetts State Legislature who chose NOT to support their hateful little amendment.
I do believe the tide is turning in our favor and the proof is in the tidal wave that just hit the fundies in
This is indeed a glorious victory! My husband and I are going out and celebrating it tonight along with my 76 year old mother who is as happy as we are.
Sorry James Dobson, you lose.
