The idea is to pretend that trying to advance the anti-SSM amendment is really all about democracy and not about anti-homosexual advocacy. According to South Coast Today, one of the group's public policy coordinators, Bea Martins, said that the rally in New Bedford is "not about same-sex marriage" but "standing up for democracy."
The article added:
Bev Baccelli, a member of Marriage Equality Coalition of the SouthCoast, said failure to call the event an anti-gay marriage rally was "disingenuous." "The fact is that this is all about gay marriage," said Ms. Baccelli, a lesbian who married her longtime partner in Canada a year before same-sex marriage became legal in Massachusetts on May 17, 2004.The rallies will be in New Bedford (the 9th), Springfield (the 10th) and Worcester (the 16th). Speakers will be the likes of conservative Republican Philip C. Paleologos and Kris Mineau, the president of the Massachusetts Family Institute, which sponsored the amendment drive.
Catholic Citizenship has its own set of nefarious links to the likes of Ray Flynn and Larry Cirignano. Democracy and fairness are not exactly what they or the organization are about.
The rally organizers say the point of the orations will be to keep the holiday spirit from muting any anger at legislators who joined to recess the Constitutional Convention until January 2nd. Fie, bah at those who would forget to harrangue those homosexuals just because of the season!
