Two Mitts and More gay Adoption

I've been doing this for about a month now, and I just realized that there is a Boston Globe AND a Boston Herald. Who knew?!!

Anyway, the Globe has a couple of interesting articles today about Mitt. The first is the standard article about any politician with presidential ambitions and the tension between governing in his present capacity while at the same time playing to a wider national audience. It's no different really than John McCain suddenly getting all snuggly with President Bush or Hillary Clinton finding new ways to talk about abortion. Politicians shifting with the wind is not necessarily news.

The second is about the continuing saga of gay adoption in Massachusetts. Apparently Mitt filed legislation that would exempt religious organizations from being bound by certain criteria that violate their religious principles. Like I said earlier, it is a matter of religious liberty if a Catholic adoption agency does not want to place children with gay couples. The issue gets stickier if that agency is funded in part by the state, which apparently Catholic Charities is. At any rate, it appears that Mitt has taken on this issue. We'll see how it turns out.
