Â Well I can sleep tonight. Massachusetts lawmakers decided to recess the Massachusetts constitutional convention without voting on the proposed amendment to ban gay marriage in the state. It is horrible to think that my marriage and rights could be put up to a popular vote. I have been married for 2 years, how has that hurt anyone else? Why are people so worried about things that don’t affect them. People are so upset with this issue they wish to change state and federal constitutions. Constitutions should grant rights, not take them away. It is unfathomable to think that people would support an amendment that would reverseÂ a freedom given to a certain segment of society. I wonder how the people who signed the initiative petition would feel if a possible amendment were proposed to eliminate freedom of religion!Â There are so many things we really need to be worried about as a society… gay marriage isn’t one of them.
