BOSTON -- VoteOnMarriage.org, the organization that collected 170,000 signatures to allow citizens to decide on the definition of marriage, is asking supporters to congratulate the 45 “courageous legislators who stood by their convictions and voted to let the people vote on marriage.”

“These heroic representatives and senators repelled the unprecedented pressure placed upon them by Deval Patrick, Therese Murray and Salvatore DiMasi and stood by their previous pledges to support the Marriage Amendment,” their Web site states.

They also encourage defenders of traditional marriage to “Tell the 11 Benedict Arnolds how you feel about their betrayal.” Benedict Arnold was considered one of the best generals in the colonial army, but ended up betraying the cause of independence by plotting to surrender West Point to the British during the American Revolution.

“These eleven Benedict Arnolds not only lied to the leaders of our movement, they lied to every citizen in this state. Right up until the day of the vote, each of these legislators reiterated their commitment to voting “Yes” to give the people a right to voice their opinion on same-sex marriage. Unfortunately, the true character of these so-called ‘public servants’ became apparent once the final vote was recorded,” VoteOnMarriage.org states.
