Massachusetts gay marriage laws up for debate again.
Surprise! The Massachusetts Joint Committee on the Judiciary has scheduled a hearing for this afternoon on new marriage legislation, some favorable to same-sex marriage, some opposed. MassEquality and the Religious Coalition for the Freedom to Marry — two groups I support — are encouraging people to stop by the State House during their 10:00 a.m. press conference or the Committee's 1:00 p.m. hearing, both in room B-2.
The Religious Coalition's press release adds:
If you cannot come the the State House, please call Rep. Eugene O'Flaherty, and Senator Robert S. Creedon, the co- chairs of the Joint Judiciary Committee and tell them that you oppose any anti-gay bills and amendments. This is about real families, about civil rights and religious liberty.
Here are their telephone numbers: Rep. Eugene O'Flaherty 617.722-2396; Senator Robert S. Creedon, Jr. 617.722-1200
