Mass. bishops make marriage amendment push

Mass. bishops make marriage amendment push

This past weekend, the Bishops of the four dioceses in Massachusetts, through the Mass. Catholic Conference, made a major push for Catholics to demand a vote on the marriage amendment.

Coming up on November 9 is the postponed and long-delayed constitutional convention, at which the Legislature is supposed to take up a vote on whether to include a constitutional amendment to protect marriage on a future ballot. They were supposed to vote on it in the Spring, but legislative leaders postponed it to two days after the election so that they wouldn’t have to be on record and it wouldn’t become a campaign issue. Such courage is rarely seen. If they really believed in what they were doing and believed it was the will of the people, they wouldn’t have to resort to such tactics.

Massachusetts Catholics are asked to contact their state representatives and senators and ask them to demand the marriage amendment be brought to a vote and that they vote in favor of it. Let the people vote!

What is the Boston Globe hiding?

  • This whole discussion is insane!

    The vote is two days AFTER THE ELECTION!!!!  What good are your calls on this issue going to be if you send one of the “I don’t want to vote” gang back to the house.  Most Reps. and Sen’s in MA are running unopposed. They will do what they d*** well please.

    So, get used to it.  It is our failure to take them on in the electoral process that brought this on, and our complacency at the polls which will make Gay Marriage a reality in MA and eventually in the rest of the USA for years to come.

    Funny, I’m campaign manager for a pro-life, pro-marriage candidate for state rep.  He is running against the woman who used to be a cantor in Andover, and was removed by her pastor and made a stink in the Boston Globe.  People say they support him, but what does this mean? 

    Usually it means a vote.

    But when the pro-abortion and the Gay lobby support someone it means signs in yards, holding signs out in the rain, letters to friends, bumper stickers and the MAXIMUM FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION allowable by law!

    To the enemy, this is all out war!  To us, we think we can turn around the Titanic with a phone-call to a rep we’ve just given an new two year contract to!

    Want them to think seriously, tell them when you call that you will start a petition to recall them from office if they don’t do what you want!

    Want something to happen, support a candidate who supports what you believe in, whether in your district, or not!

  • To counter those who say you cannot vote on civil rights….

    please inform them that we must uphold the constitutions, both of your state, and of the United States…  for WITHOUT THESE, THERE ARE NO CIVIL RIGHTS!

  • Joe, you and Lonnie are running an excellent campaign!  I wish I could vote for him. 🙁

    I contributed to his campaign!

    I made a similar comment on a “Republican” email list, the Mass GOP is busy arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.
