More wonderful news from the People’s Republic

As if the anti-Catholicism of the MA state legislature wasn’t enough, now a movement is underfoot to prevent the people from voting. The organization Gay and Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) filed a lawsuit yesterday to stop a ballot initiative that was initiated by the people and has the highest signature count of any popularly-initiated ballot initiative in history. They are focusing on a provision in the MA state constitution that says a popular initiative can’t be initiated to overrule a judicial decision. This would not be a problem except for the fact that the Judiciary has overstepped its bounds in a big way.

The people of MA, like the people in RI, need to stand up and be heard. They need to fight this, and if this measure is overturned, elect legislators who will propose an amendment to overturn the court’s unconstitutional abuse of power.
