One of the first gay couples to get married in Massachusetts, Thomas Lang and Alexander Westerhoff, have vowed to protect their marriage in a unique way. The state Attorney General approved a ballot question on Wednesday that would outlaw gay and lesbian marriage and civil unions. Supporters of the question now have to collect 65,000+ signatures to get it on the ballot.
Lang, 42, said the name, street address, hometown and ZIP code of everyone who signs the petition will be posted on the Web site

"Everyone's scrambling to know who in their town would sign this," Lang told the Boston Herald. "And this Web site will give gay people the tools to know, to defend themselves and their families, to let them go neighbor-to-neighbor and say, 'I don't appreciate your signing this."'
