Supporting Gay Marriage

I am one of the twelve Hull Democratic Town Committee members who voted Yes to draft and send the following letter to Garrrett Bradley supporting Gay marriage:

HULL DEMOCRATIC TOWN COMMITTEE
HULL, MA 02045

March 9, 2004

Representative Garrett J. Bradley
State House
Boston, Massachusetts

Dear Representative Bradley:

At a duly constituted meeting of the Hull Democratic Town Committee this evening, it was voted to inform you that a two-to-one voting majority of those present believes that the decision of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts in November, affirming the marriage rights of all citizens of this Commonwealth, should be upheld. We do not believe that civil unions are the equivalent of marriage under the law. We, therefore, ask you - as our standard bearer in the House of Representatives - to vote in favor of those amendments at the constitutional convention to convene on Thursday, or any other venue, that uphold those rights to equality, and to vote against any amendments that run counter to our expressed vote.

As people who have worked hard to ensure your election to the House, we know that we can count on you to assert the rights of all citizens in the Commonwealth, and not to codify discrimination into the Massachusetts Constitution.

Respectfully yours,

Joel Gagne

Chairman

Note to self: Create a category for my voting record on motions brought to a vote at Hull Democratic Town Committee meetings.

My opinon on gay marriage is allow it! If this is supposed to be the land of the free then why can't they get married. I think it's low of Mr. Bush to ban same sex marriages. I think they are allowed their freedom. The way it's going the country's motto should be "America land of the free except for Gay's and lesbienes!"

There's nothing wrong with gay marriages. Just sipmly ask yourself "How does gay marriages affect me?"

I don't believe gay marriages. I'm defintely against it if it is children involved. I don't think two children should have two of the same parents, I think it will pervert children psycologically and mentally.

I support gay marriages. Who said the definition of marriage found in the bible is right? Last time I checked, marriage is between two loving persons, whether they are gay or not is irrelevant. They are people like everybody else. What is so wrong to love and be loved?

i beleive in gay marriage being bisexual myself. i beleive that the bible doesnt have to say that homosexual relationships should be a sin. i dont beleive it...

i think gay marriages are no different than straight marriages.
we are all people, whether you are gay, straight, black, white, orange or purple.

if you think gay marriages is wrong, you are pretty ignorant. i would think in this day and age peoples way of thinking would have evolved a bit.

noone says anything about straight marriages do they?

exactly. than what's the difference.

i think gay marriage should be allowed because we all have equal rights, dont we? then why are so many people against this particular subject?

the bible clearly states that homosexuality is a in fact a sin and one would become homosexual because of one's sins and because of their own choice. how do we know that everythng in the bible is true?

hundreds of people are against gay marriage and why? because they believe that "marriage" means two people of the OPPOSITE SEX joining together. and if that's not what happens then there would be no meaning to it at all. yet after all those people putting homosexuals down, over 500,000 people are still fighting back for equal rights, same-sex couples, and AGAINST the Federal Marriage Amendment.

i thought we had freedom... now Bush is changing that.

I'm in full support of gay marriages! As someone else said, how would it effect you? And as for the comment on it effecting children. Children grasp an incredibly open mind and are pretty accepting of anything. Children don't understand politics. Same sex marriages just give them a different enviornment. The only way it'd torment them would be it if caused them to be ridiculed, that not being their fault but that of those telling the other children that there is something wrong with being gay. Children's ideas are their parents to begin with. Perhaps if every parent wasn't biast and predjudice the children issue wouldn't even matter here.
