The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court was clever enough in 2004 to find that the venerable constitution of the commonwealth required that marriage law be independent from gender. Yesterday, the SJC decided not to dictate the plans and funding for state primary and secondary schools. Thanks for that outbreak of humility, folks.
The Boston Globe story here discreetly does not mention who funded the plaintiffs in this case. However Scot Lehigh’s column names the two leading state teacher unions as providing “most of the funding”. Somehow, I guess one can’t say that in the paper. In the MSM mind, perhaps, this little bit of information must be irrelevant to the story. Go figure.
