New York Times Endorses Marriage Equality Campaigns

The New York Times editorial board endorsed marriage equality Tuesday in all four states facing campaigns, discouraging voters from standing on the “wrong side of fairness”:

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.
