Gay marriage or not?


Two Globe West residents were among those demonstrating at the Statehouse yesterday as the Legislature pondered, then postponed a vote on, a proposed constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.

Lori Hill of Newton, an opponent of the amendment, says she will "keep fighting for another four months" -- until the issue comes up again after the November election.

On the other side, Sister Agnes Marie of Bellingham supported the amendment. "From the beginning, God ordained that it should be a man and a woman," she told the Globe. "It's not a matter of choice. We have to obey him."
