Dear Oregon friends of freedom,
The Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts repeatedly rules that the Massachusetts state constitution guarantees equal civil rights for all -- including the equal right of same-gender couples to marry, just as different-gender couples do.
But now Governor Mitt Romney, a Mormon Republican, tells "his" state supreme court to IGNORE the state constitution, at least until November 2006.
Newspapers often print stories about chief executives bullying judges. But such reports usually come from foreign lands, ruled by dictators.
Shall Massachusetts judges click their heels and respectfully reply, "Heil Mittler" ?
