“The politicians on Beacon Hill would not allow the referendum to come to a vote in the Mass Senate”
Patrick was governor by then. Just barely, but he was the gov.
The politicians on Beacon Hill violated the Massachusetts Constitution by not allowing us to vote. Never in the history of my state had so many signatures been gathered on an issue.
Ah. Thanks for the correction.
The politicians should have been arrested for malfeasance.
But with Devil Patrick in the corner office, they must’ve felt safe.
Foster Furcolo would’ve sent the State Troopers over there to handcuff them. I remember him threatening to keep the legislation in session “until Hell freezes over”(his words in a TV broadcast to the citizens of Massachusetts) to get the no-fault auto insurance passed.
...and all these years later,gay “marriage” STILL is NOT legal in Massachusetts!
MARCH 16, 2010
For years now — since 2005 — the homosexual lobby has filed and refiled its bill to legalize “gay marriage” in Massachusetts. They know that the law as it now stands refers to “man/woman”, “husband/wife” relationships as marriage. Today, the Judiciary Committee once again sent the bill to “study” — meaning, they killed it. But the very existence of this bill over the years confirms that we are correct that “gay marriage” has never been made legal in Massachusetts.
House Bill 1708
AN ACT TO PROTECT MASSACHUSETTS FAMILIES THROUGH EQUAL ACCESS TO CIVIL
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority
of the same, as follows:
SECTION 1. Chapter 207 is hereby amended by adding the
following new section:
Section 37A. Any person who otherwise meets the eligibility requirements of this chapter may
marry any other eligible person regardless of gender.
Why would the Judiciary Committee continue to bury this bill? We believe they don’t want to draw attention to the fact that all the “gay marriages” since 2004 are fraudulent.
