Live Reports from Boston
Kelsey Flynn is calling in blog entries to The Fray
We just heard a very compelling speech by Rep. Byron Rushing (D-Boston), who called this "a great day, a day of justice" because we're striking down this anti-gay marriage amendment. He addressed some earlier comments that were made about religion and noted that in Massachusetts, you can violate all ten Commandments and still get married.
He reminded us that we continue to broaden the definition of "We the people," and that when the first President was elected, "We the people" referred to less than half the population. Over the years, through legislation and amendments and judgments, more and more people have been able to take advantage of the rights enjoyed by "we the people."
It was a great speech.
