Yes: Gov. Mitt Romney started same-sex “marriage” in Massachusetts
Same-sex "marriage" is still NOT legal in Massachusetts, and was NOT created by the Supreme Judicial Court's Goodridge ruling.
In fact, it was Governor Mitt Romney who was ultimately responsible for same-sex "marriages" taking place. The Supreme Judicial Court only issued an opinion and advised the Legislature to act (which it never did). Even the Court acknowledged that it had no power to change the law.
Governor Romney created these "marriages" through an unconstitutional and illegal directive to his Department of Public Health (to print new "marriage" licenses), and through his legal counsel threatened to fire any Town Clerk or Justice of the Peace who failed to implement the (non-existent) "new law". He was not required by any constitutional mandate to do these things. On the contrary, his actions clearly violated his oath to uphold the laws of Massachusetts.
Governor Romney has it within his powers to rectify these serious unconstitutional acts which have done so much harm to our state and country. He can reverse these fraudulent policies before the end of his term. And he can issue an Executive Order correcting the misinterpation of the law and rightfully declaring these unlawful “marriages” null and void.
(Moreover, the Massachusetts Constitution does not need to be amended. The proposed Constitutional Amendment would make things much worse. It would effectively legitimize the current illegitimate same-sex “marrriages” by assuming that the Goodridge decision had changed the law, and by its wording only bans future same-sex “marriages”.)~End Article
Commentary: We have been told by these same people, like Tyler Dawbin, who is a self-proclaimed member of Article 8 Alliance, for over a year that they do not want to see our gay marriages dissolved, they just want to put our right to marry to a vote. They say the vote will not change the status of our marriages that have already been given, but as you can read, they don't really intend to leave it at that. We should thank these people for this article as it can be used later if Romney decides in his hubris that he is going to be the next king of America.
