Massachusetts Should Abolish 1913 Law
With all the noise we made about the bill since May it's great to
think that perhaps our efforts were heard & acted on.....:)
When gay marriage became the law in Massachusetts the opponents
quickly enforced an obscure 1913 law that prohibits out-of-state
residents from marrying in the Bay State. Of course this was during
the Romney administration. In 2007 Deval Patrick was elected as
Massachusetts' first Afro-American Governor. The true irony is that
this 1913 law was put on the books to prevent interracial marriages.
The fact that the law remains is a total disgrace.....
Let's discuss the bottom line. By keeping this law Massachusetts
is losing 100 million dollars in yearly revenues by not allowing
out-of-state gay marriages. This means that since 2004 when gay
marriage became legal we've already lost @ least 400 million $$$
if not more.....Now let's address the national gay marriage scene.
New York has ruled that they'll honor gay marriages from other
states & countries. When gay marriage becomes legal in a few
weeks in California they'll allow out-of-state gay couples to marry.
If you're on the east coast wouldn't you rather take the short trip
to Massachusetts then travel across the entire country to tie
the knot ??? Updates to Come...... :)
