(antiMUSIC) Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst
may have a new significant other. In a protest against Massachusetts Gov.
Romney and Attorney General Tom Reilly's recent ban on out-of-state gay
couples traveling to Massachusetts to marry, Durst reportedly married Limp
Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland in a private ceremony in Worcester. An unreliable
witness to the ceremony said that Durst explained the marriage as having
two purposes; to protest the governor's move against gay marriage which
was legalized by a recent Supreme Judicial Court decision and also because
now that he has Borland back in his life he does not want to chance losing
Gov. Romney recently invoked a 1913 statute
that prevents any out-of-state couple from marrying in Massachusetts. Clerks
from thirteen Massachusetts towns including Worchester have appealed to
the Supreme Judicial Court to overturn the ban.
"We refuse to silently stand by and blindly
carry out orders that are discriminatory," said David Rushford, clerk of
Worcester to TownOnline.com. "If local officials had refused to carry out
racially discriminatory state policies during the civil rights movement,
we would have hailed their actions. Today, we have the opportunity to say
no to discrimination in carrying out our duties, and we hope the court
will recognize the importance of our ability to do that."
