MassResistance files papers with MA Secretary of State to force statewide vote on Legislature's repeal of "1913 Law"Of course if you happened to see the site yesterday it was full of typos (someone must have alerted Camenker to his spotty spelling).
Pro-family activists to collect required 33,297 signatures by October deadline.
Watch for our FULL REPORT to be posted Sunday evening at 6:00 pm. And get involved!
So, curious me, I wanted to see what exactly they were going to do. Hmm...gather over 33,000 signatures all by October, which still wouldn't stop out of state couples from marrying, so I went to the links they provided in their emails on the Massachusetts Constitution (funny, you can't get the links if you don't get their emails, I guess they're trying to hide all of this from the homosexual activists).
Now, I probably shouldn't really be saying this because I would love to bankrupt them by having them spent thousands of dollars, that would usually just go into Brian Camenker's pockets, on getting signatures for this absurd petition (how many people will sign when they find out that MassResistance is a hate group as defined by the Southern Poverty Law Center?).
and I'm no lawyer, the repeal of the 1913 law is not a law but a repeal of the law. This will probably be something that will get tied up in courts if it gets that far (do you think that MassResistance has even consulted any lawyers on this? I can't imagine since they would most likely have to pay them.)
It doesn't seem like Constitution applies because the legislature is removing a law they they enacted. The provision in the Constitution that MassResistance is looking at is supposed to protect the people from a law enacted by the legislature and provides a safety mechanism for the people to repeal the law that the legislature has enacted. In this instance the legislature of it's own accord has repealed a law it found offensive. Talk about irony.
