Random Liberals

We are random liberals (who knew?). Collectively, we make up the greatest blog in the history of ourselves. We will blog about anything that suits us; mostly politics, with a little bit of religion and randomness to make the blog exciting.

Equal rights, revisited

Yesterday, Massachusetts legislators narrowly defeated two proposed constitutional amendements that would ban marriage for homosexuals. There are two other proposed amendments today, so this is not over yet.

Update: Some officials in San Francisco have issued marriage licences and performed weddings for about 20 same-sex couples today, in direct defiance of state law.

POSTSCRIPT: I'm not really sure what's going to come of this thing with the city of San Francisco. The legislators in Sacramento cannot be at all happy about this decision by mayor Newsom. One of several things could happen. First, the state legislature could change the law. I find that unlikely. Second, they could just do nothing. Also unlikely. Third, they could start screaming for Mayor Newsom's head. If that happens, we will have a serious fight on our hands, because I guarantee Newsom won't go quietly. More on this later.
