gay marriage legal

This past Friday the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled that civil unions, legalized in 2005, are not constitutional. They were found to be both separate and unequal. Connecticut was the first of the United States to give gay couples some of the rights of straight couples without judicial intervention. Connecticut will be the third state to legalize marriage for all eligible couples.

Although it was a day of joy for dozens of Connecticut couples, especially the eight couples who sued the state, many fear the ruling will have a negative effect on the status of California’s constitution. Many fear that it has further excited the opposition and has led to more funding for a “Yes” on Proposition 8 in California. Millions of Californians are expected to answer “yes,” “eliminate right.” Others fear that marriage equality is a “deathblow” to marriage by a series of cause-effect errors. These people are silly.

Connecticut voters will have the opportunity to call for or object to a “constitutional convention.” Although this sounds patriotic and/or progressive, the Break-Up Families Institute of Connecticut hopes to use the convention to put gay marriage on the ballot. The question will read, “Shall there be a Constitutional Convention to amend or revise the Constitution of the State?” Connecticut based Love Makes a Family and others urges you to VOTE NO ON ONE NOVEMBER 4TH.
