ConCon tomorrow in MA
We here in Massachusetts have enjoyed same-sex marriage for three years. Tomorrow the Legislature will sit as a Constitutional Convention to decide whether or not to put a constitutional amendment on the ballot in 2008 that would define marriage as between a man and a woman only.
Despite some very moving television and print ads by MassEquality, most people think the amendment will move to the ballot. The opposition has cleverly framed the issue as "let the people vote", "do the democratic thing," but I'm sure that the ballot fight will be bloody and costly, with most of the money coming from out of state.
It is time to turn this over to prayer. I'm asking my Soulforce family to support us with your prayers.
What a difference a day makes! The amendment was defeated 151-45. Deo gratias.
