A big day in the same-sex marriage wars. The Associated Press reports that the state's Supreme Judicial Court will rule at 10 a.m. in the Goodrich same-sex marriage case.

Also known as an "outside agitator." Not that I mind, but somehow I doubt that the Boston Globe would refer to Ron Crews as a "transplant" in a headline if he had come north from Georgia to fight in favor of same-sex marriage rather than against.

The headline accompanies this profile by Yvonne Abraham, who portrays the former Georgia legislator as a modernist hatemonger -- that is, he hates lesbians and gay men, but apparently not African-Americans, since he got in trouble with his constituents down South when he voted against the Confederate flag.

You might also want to check out the website of the transplant's organization, the Massachusetts Family Institute.
