GAY MARRIAGE….Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is stridently opposed to same-sex marriage, and on Friday he asked his attorney general to invoke a 1913 law that bars couples from marrying in Massachusetts if their unions would not be legal in their home states.

And why does Massachusetts have such a law in the first place? In order to prevent marriages of mixed race couples from out of state.

That’s a perfect symbol, isn’t it? Gay marriage opponents are now invoking laws originally designed to make it more difficult for blacks and whites to marry each other. I hope they’re proud of being the modern day heirs of Jim Crow.
