While Massachusetts is seen as an early adapter of civil rights
policies, U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren said her state should
be an example of how lead the rest of the country in expanding gay
In a message to Blue Mass Group, a progressive Massachusetts blog, Warren added her support for repealing the Defense of Marriage Act, eradicating the "two-tiered system" that the law creates. She added, "our federal government should not be in the business of selecting which married couples it supports and which it treats with contempt. States define marriage among couples, and, once married, all those couples and their families should have the same protections, the same benefits, and the same tax treatments."
Warren also wrote that instituting the Employment Non-Discrimination Act and more provisions to end bullying in schools.
