Excuse me, Ambassador, under this new amendment same sex couples already married will continue to be married so your anti-gay amendment only enshrines bigotry. Additionally, you say it's "best for the children", what about the children with same sex parents and what study are you referencing since there are no studies which support this statement?
Former Boston Mayor Ray Flynn, a gay marriage opponent, said the new proposal is superior because it enshrines marriage between a man and a woman, which he said is best for children. But he added the measure would ensure rights for non-married couples, such as inheritance or hospital visitation rights. It's worth the wait to vote on it, he said.
Mr. Ambassador, what are you talking about when you say "the measure would ensure rights for unmarried couples"? What measure? The new amendment to the constitution? The wording of the amendment, written by the Mass "Family" institute which you signed your name to says:
When recognizing marriages entered into after the adoption of this amendment by the people, the Commonwealth and its political subdivisions shall define marriage only as the union of one man and one woman.Do you see anything about unmarried couples in the above language? It says NOTHING about unmarried couples, NOTHING! so what is he talking about?
"I'd rather get it right than discriminate or hurt anybody," he said. "I think that it strikes that fair balance."What "fair balance" is he talking about? Oh, I know, he must be referring to the same fair balance that Fox News uses as their slogan, and we all know how fair and balanced they are. I guess it's part of the anti-gay bigotry campaign which Flynn is heading up.
Flynn is such an upstanding citizen, you can read more about his moral escapades here: A controversial front-page story says the former mayor has a drinking problem, that he was a failure at the Vatican. Flynn says it was a cheap shot, driven by class bias. The more interesting question: What took the Globe so long?
Update: Here's a new article I found about Flynn and his support for Cardinal Law:
