Tomorrow or Thursday should finish the job when the action moves to the House.

The Massachusetts Senate is voting this afternoon on a bill that would repeal the so-called “1913” law and start the exporting of same-sex “marriage” from the Bay State to states across the nation. This repeal would create havoc the long-standing tradition of respecting the right of other states to define marriage as they choose.
