Marries Equality Foes Voted Down! 

On a historic and very tense day today, Beacon Hill lawmakers voted down the proposed constitutional amendment that would have enshrined discrimination into our state constitution. The ballot initiative, which was approved once by a small margin, needed 50 votes out of 200 today to make it onto the ballot in 2008 for voters to cast ballots on whether to take away a right that had been in place for the last three years. Last time they got 62 to make it to this round, this time they got 45.

Ding-dong, the amendment's dead. Long live marriage equality!
