Massachusetts will ban gay marriage, but will also install the right to same-sex civil unions, "to provide entirely the same benefits, protections, rights and responsibilities that are afforded to couples married under Massachusetts law."
This is supposedly a compromise, but we're having trouble seeing what the anti-gay marriage folks got out of the deal. It's not like they also outlawed white dresses and bad cover bands. Are they going to stand outside Unitarian churches with signs? "You're not really married! Nah-nah-nah-nah!" Or, "We saved divorce for the people who really need it"? The big question: Will they be able to compel gays to drink from the "homos only" water fountain?
