Gay marriage may come to a vote

WALTHAM

Ken Repp of Waltham comments on the gay marriage issue in today's Globe, saying, "As soon as you go down the path of the majority voting on the rights of the minority, you're going down a dangerous path."

Repp has been married to his husband, Christopher Johnson, for 2 1/2 years.

The Globe reports that Governor Mitt Romney may be on his way out of office, but that doesn't mean he's letting the gay marriage issue rest.

Romney said he will ask the Supreme Judicial Court to order a statewide referendum on banning gay marriages to be put on the ballot.

Thousands of people signed petitions asking for the measure to be put on the ballot, but the Legislature has to approve it, and the measure hasn't found enough support among lawmakers.
