NY Times Endorses Marriage Equality Ballot Measures

The New York Times has endorsed the marriage equality ballot measures in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington.

The editorial states:

“The freedom to marry is a fundamental right that should not have to be won or defended at the ballot box. In fact, ballot initiatives are a bad way to write or rewrite laws of any kind. Unfortunately, that is the reality of American politics, which is why same-sex marriage measures on the Nov. 6 ballot in Maine, Washington, Maryland and Minnesota could turn out to be pivotal in the struggle for marriage equality.”

Read the endorsement in its entirety at The New York Times.
