Planes fly
antigay banners above Massachusetts

Airplanes pulling banners urging citizens to support efforts to repeal Massachusetts's law permitting same-sex marriage circled the town of Fitchburg and other areas on Friday, the Sentinel & Enterprise reported. State representative Emile Goguen--who is pushing a bill to remove the supreme judicial court justices who legalized same-sex marriage in the state--denied he had anything to do with the event, though he did appear at the airport. "Regardless of whether Goguen wins or loses the vote in coming weeks, he deserves tremendous credit for his principled stand," said Sally Pawlick, president of Massachusetts Citizens for Marriage, in a statement. The planes also circled Boston for a few hours. Carisa Cunningham, a spokeswoman for Boston-based Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders, said the banners do not reflect the majority opinion on same-sex marriage across the state. "I think the support for marriage equality in the state is large and grows every day," she told the newspaper. "But they're free to express their opinion." (Advocate.com)
