Sprigg says those activists are going to use Massachusetts as a wedge to achieve the goal of imposing same-sex marriage on every state.

The Heat of Summer
Now that Massachusetts officials have begun issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, the supporters of traditional marriage are bracing for an explosive summer.

Homosexual couples from other states have flocked to the Bay State to get married, but many say they will return to their own states with an agenda.  U.S. Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, sponsor of the Federal Marriage Amendment legislation current working its way through the House of Representatives, says this summer of upheaval is courtesy of the pro-homosexual judiciary in Massachusetts.

"Armed with such an unprecedented ruling by the four Supreme Court justices in Massachusetts, and the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in the Lawrence v. Texas case, homosexual couples will fiercely attack well-founded state laws," the Colorado Republican says.

Thirty-eight states have Defense of Marriage Acts (DOMAs) which define marriage as the union of a man and a woman.  Musgrave says those DOMAs will be attacked in the courts this summer by homosexual activists.
