PRO: The sky didn't fall in Massachusetts

Jun 15, 2008 Full story: origin.whittierdailynews.com 9

AS same-sex couples across California celebrate and make plans to marry, it's a bittersweet time for some of us who rushed to the altar the minute it became legal four years ago in Massachusetts.

We've watched other states adopt domestic partnership arrangements that fall just short of marriage, or vote to ban same-sex marriage outright. Soon, those of us who took the plunge in Massachusetts will cease to be residents of the only state in the union that accords us the same rights and respect that our neighbors, friends, co-workers and other family members have taken for granted all of their lives.

Yep. And it still mystifies me that so many hate-mongers are willing to work SO hard to deny other people equal marriage rights when those rights in no way effect those objecting to them.

Massachusetts is the Mississippi of the north. Worst state in the country. I would not doubt if those people start marrying their dogs.

This coming from someone who lives in our only third world state. Taking a swipe at another state is foolish for someone in Floriduh.

I think this is one of the stupidest things I've seen anybody ever write on here... EVER. Maybe you should consider going back to school.

Hi neighbor. Here's a newsflash for you:

"Florida is the only state that, by statute, prevents all persons who happen to be gay or lesbian from adopting."

Keep living in the biggest trailer park in the USA. By now you do realize the world is moving away from such close mindedness.

Look the last thing that is a "problem' in MA is gay marriage. About the biggest problem for those who have had same sex marriages in MA is that they can't get divorces in any other state and must live here while going though a divorce.

Your post is comical considering Massachusetts has the lowest divorce rate of any of the fifty United States. Comparing Massachusetts to Mississippi makes you seem uneducated.

I guess somebody is lacking of information and it is jumping into own conclusions...:)
