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.
Ben, I am praying! Didnt' realize this was happening already. For every couple of steps forward, we take one back. Others are watching this to see what happens, it could set some precedence and make gay marriage/civil unions more difficult to get through in the future if the issue successfully goes to ballot.
