Kerry on defeat of same-sex marriage ban in Massachusetts

Senator John Kerry today issued the following statement on the defeat of the same-sex marriage ban in Massachusetts.

"This is an important victory and a clear statement that the old politics of division, distraction, discrimination and wedge issues will not find a home in Massachusetts. Brave legislators recognized that this amendment was wrong. They voted down a kind of politics that was nothing but punitive. They stood against an effort that didn't even purport to provide for equal rights. A lot of hard work went into this victory and I applaud Governor Patrick, Senate President Murray, Speaker DiMasi and all who were involved in ensuring that a discriminatory and misleading ballot initiative was kept off the ballot in Massachusetts."
