Marriage debate deadlocked on Beacon Hill

Shame on Cynthia Creem (alas, my State Senator) for turning this important debate into name-calling:

Yesterday's debate brought passionate speeches from both sides of the gay marriage debate. Senator Cynthia Stone Creem, Democrat of Newton, likened efforts to ban gay marriage to restrictions against Jews in Nazi Germany, and Representative Rachel Kaprielian, Democrat of Watertown, made reference to the persecution of Armenians.

What was the passionate rhetoric from the "other side of the gay marriage debate"? As in, I presume, the Nazi Democratic and Republican Senators and State Reps? The Globe, typically, leaves that for you to find out for yourself.
