Mawwage is what brings us together

Koko has a new article in the Providence Phoenix about the Massachusetts Trial Court decision on Friday that enabled lesbian and gay couples from Rhode Island to go and marry in the Bay State.

The ruling came after Gov. Mitt Romney, who is working hard to get the Jerry-Falwell-foaming-at-the-mouth vote in the Republican primaries for President in 2008, used a 1913 law originally passed to stop interracial out-of-state couples from marrying in Massachusetts, in an attempt to keep out-of-state LGBT couples out now.

So, as Mitt mourned his loss, LGBT activists in Rhode Island cut the cake and raised their glasses of sparkling cider.

And the culture wars roll on.
