Why Gays Should Be Permitted to Marry
Yesterday the Massachusetts legislature voted down a constitutional amendment that would have limited the august institution of marriage to people of the opposite sex. Hateful religious types traveled from out-of-state to protest at the Senate steps, outraged at the erosion of “family values” propagated by egalitarian lawmakers who inexplicably think the laws of our nation ought to apply to everyone, regardless of with whom they sleep.
To us, this is a non-issue. There aren’t two sides of the coin to examine. It’s obvious.
Gays ought to be allowed to marry. Why should straights be the only miserable ones?
