Massachusetts High Court Rules That Gays From Out of State Cannot Come There to Marry

The state's highest court ruled Thursday that same-sex couples from other states cannot legally marry in Massachusetts.

The Supreme Judicial Court, which three years ago made Massachusetts the first state to legalize gay marriage, ruled in a challenge to a 1913 state law that forbids non-residents from marrying in Massachusetts if their marriage would not be recognized in their home state.

Anyone want to guess who the rightwingnuts were afraid would want to get married in 1913? Whose marriages would lead to the collapse of society? Which people they viewed as second-class citizens, whether they said it or not?
