Representative Travis today
"Massachusetts will be forever known as the birthplace of homosexual marriage. From the Bay State to the Gay State," said Rep. Philip Travis, D-Rehoboth, who sponsored a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriages. "I had hoped that people of common sense, who understand what nature and marriage is all about, would prevent it from happening."
My world changes in the fact that the marriage license I hold with my wife will no longer mean what it meant on May 16. It is not going to impact my relationship with my wife of almost 34 years, but the fact [is] that the word marriage has now been radically redefined by judicial fiat. If I dwell on that I can get really despondent, but I choose not to dwell on that.
What a martyr.
