- Couples who live in states that do not have laws against same sex marriage may be able to marry here.
- There is NO need for a Federal Marriage Amendment since the Massachusetts Court ruled that it is not transferable to other states.
- Gay couples who live outside of Massachusetts should be packing their things and hiring a moving van since Mass is still the only state that doesn't discriminate against same sex couples. Yeah we have some loonies, but they are few and far between. AND you get to vote in the State elections when you move here!
Finally I must comment on the "happy dance" that Gov. Willard Romney is doing. Of course he's still calling down the MA SJC for the Goodridge decision but he had a bit more to say on this decision:
"This is an important victory for those of us who wanted to preserve traditional marriage and to make sure that the mistake of Massachusetts doesn't become the mistake of the entire country," Romney told reporters after the decision.Gov., I think your words are going to come back and haunt you in the not too distant future because you see Mitt, when we think about YOU trying to become President of the United States:
We will make sure that the mistake of Massachusetts doesn't become the mistake of the entire country.
