Banned in Boston

Interesting article last week in the Weekly Standard about the conflict in my home state of Massachusetts in the wake of legalized same sex marriage. Catholic Charities recently stopped providing all adoption services because they feared that they would be forced, on antidiscrimination grounds, to allow married same sex couples to adopt. Over the last few years, I have become more of a supporter of same sex marriage (more on that later). However, this situation strikes me as an example where government has exceeded its mandate by attempting to regulate thought. We need government to take a step back and allow citizens the freedom to define their own morality, even if that upsets people.

That you have right, the government is no longer representing us but trying to control. we the people are the only ones that can make the change.
