But the issue at hand is that both the overtly anti-gay amendment and the moderately pro-gay amendment failed to carry. The one common thread between them was banning gays and lesbians from marriage. So the handwriting should be on the wall for the homophobes. But they will start again today in desperation to try to get something through to ban us from marriage.
WBZ radio's talk show at 8PM last night featured a constitutional law expert who flatly calls all this political posturing. He said any attempt to legislate the transformation of gay marriages back into civil unions or to disolve them entirely once they have taken place,
even via constitutional amendment, will never fly legally in the U.S. He said it would be a case he would take in an instant and he would win because for the government to break up marriages would be a legal outrage of immense proportions.
The debate today resumes at noon.
Many thanks to Ron (Ron's Log) for alerting me that many web brousers (Opera, Safari, Internet Explorer) would not display any more than the heading of my blog. Only Netscape seemed to work without trouble. I went into the template and cleaned things up--somehow the codes had become scrambled--and everything is working once again.
