Quotes from Legislature's debate on gay marriage

The Associated Press

Some quotes from Thursday's debate on a proposed constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage.

"The parallels, I believe, are obvious. The ironies are haunting. Today, many of us are the grandchildren or great grandchildren of Catholic immigrants. Our forebears were the victims of a double standard. Today we are about the business of imposing a double standard on another community." - Robert O'Leary, D-Barnstable, opposing ban on gay marriage, citing 1917 amendment blocking funds to Catholic schools.
