The Next Wrestling Match

Now it's Rhode Island's turn to head to the mat over marriage.

Last week, after Governor Lincoln Chafee called for legalizing same-sex marriage in his inaugural address (see below), bills to do just that were introduced in the General Assembly.

The Catholic Church then said same-sex marriage would be great for Rhode Island. And if you believe that, I've got a bridge to Block Island with your name on it.

Bishop Thomas J. Tobin released a statement saying the push for marriage equality in Little Rhody was “morally wrong and detrimental to the well-being of our state.”

The match is underway. Takedowns and half nelsons ahead.
