This Day in Romney-dom: June 5, 2006

(A post in honor of the recent decision by the First Circuit Court of Appeals striking down the federal Defense of Marriage Act.)

Six years ago today, his eye on a 2008 Presidential run, Romney sent a letter to Congress supporting a federal constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. He posed this Zen Koan of sorts.

“Once a society establishes that it is legally indifferent between traditional marriage and same-sex marriage, how can one preserve any practice which favors the union of a man and a woman?”

So much to think about. Thank you, Governor.

PS – the amendment did not come close to the two-thirds needed for passage (236 yeas to 187 nays in the House and 49 to 48 in the Senate.
