The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court erased any doubts about its extreme liberalism and judicial activism when it ruled today that only full marriage for homosexuals, not civil unions, will live up to its November decision. The oligarchs have decreed it and it must be so! While, in its practical effect on society, civil unions and gay marriage are not different, there is a political difference. Civil unions could conceivably be repealed or altered by legislation someday while the granting of marriage rights cannot. Under the court’s ruling, homosexuals have to be given every right that actual married couples get.
This makes next Wednesday’s constitutional convention even more important and makes it vital that Massachusetts voters call their representatives and let their voices be heard. We don’t want a bunch of unelected activists to decide the shape of our society; it is our inalienable rights that are being trampled here.
