In April 2004, Article 8 Alliance held a demonstration on the State House steps denouncing the Supreme Judicial Court's anti-constitutional Goodridge gay marriage ruling (Nov. 2003) and calling for removal of the four rogue justices. One of our protesters held a sign reading "Polygamy Is Next"
Our prediction was correct. It's just taking a few decades to get there. We will probably see a case before the Mass. Supreme Judicial Court soon and it will rule, once again, that LOVE IS LOVE and there's no reason to limit marriage to only two people.
Since I no longer live in Massachusetts, I don't keep track of this sort of insanity. A Boston area friend alerted me to the latest slide down the pervy slope in Somerville. From the local rag, Patch:
Somerville Passes Polyamorous Non-Discrimination Ordinances The historic move makes Somerville the first city in the United States to extend explicit legal protections to polyamorous families. (March 24, 2023)
Somerville City Council made history Friday with the passing of non-discrimination ordinances to protect polyamorous families and relationships, city officials announced in a news release.
The ordinances make Somerville the first city in the country to extend legal protections to polyamorous and non-nuclear families and relationships.
The ordinances were introduced by City Councilor At-Large Willie Burnely and Councilor JT Scott to prohibit employers, law enforcement, and others from discriminating against someone based on their family or relationship structure.
“As a polyamorous person, I'm grateful to live in a city that embraces rather than punishes people based on their family or relationship structure,” said Councilor Willie Burnley Jr in the news release.
My friend commented: "Previously, Somerville and Cambridge gave benefits to city employees in poly relationships. Somerville used to be nearly all blue collar and not Woke years ago. But it caught the Cambridge disease and is probably sicker than Cambridge now. And that's saying a LOT. (Cambridge is full of hi-tech companies from which it gets loads of tax revenue, yet believes in socialism.) Other nearby Woke cities: Arlington, Brookline, Newton, Boston ... The disease is spreading."
