Today it was reported in the Washington Post:
The highest court in Massachusetts declared today that the state legislature may not offer “civil union” instead of marriage for same-sex couples, in a ruling that guarantees that the first state-recognized same-sex marriages in U.S. history can take place beginning in mid-May.
As pointed out in the article this will be a big debate point in the coming election and cause further division in the politics of this nation. But it is a major step forward for freedom. The other states will have to deal with that pesky “full faith and credit“ clause in the constitution that says they must recognize the licenses of other states. Which will bring up the issue of concealed carry licenses. Lots of implications here. Glad to see it.
Now if MA would just get rid of bunch of their draconian gun laws. Why is it that people seem to only want one or two particular flavors of freedom at a time? I can’t help but think that people don’t want freedom at all, or at least they only want it for themselves and not everyone else.
