On Monday, Exodus applauded a Massachusetts constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage but permit civil unions.

Quite likely the Exodus leadership overlooked the whole civil-unions clause, or perhaps it was pressured overnight by its political partners, Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council, to take a tougher stand.

In any event, on Tuesday Exodus issued a revised opinion titled, “Massachusetts amendment still undermines marriage.” Exodus joins the religious right in calling the plainly worded compromise amendment “legislative trickery.”
