New York Times: “Connecticut Ruling Overturns Ban on Same-Sex Marriage“:
In his majority opinion, Justice Richard N. Palmer wrote that the court found that the “segregation of heterosexual and homosexual couples into separate institutions constitutes a cognizable harm,” in light of “the history of pernicious discrimination faced by gay men and lesbians, and because the institution of marriage carries with it a status and significance that the newly created classification of civil unions does not embody.”
The court also found that “the state had failed to provide sufficient justification for excluding same-sex couples from the institution of marriage.”
Let’s hope, when the backlash lashes back over there, we can send them some winning strategy from California. It is ALL HANDS ON DECK time over here, steady hand to the tiller time, EVERY SHOULDER AND HEART LEANING INTO THE TASK.
Ooops. I let loose with the all caps again. There just miiiiight be a bit more of that in the coming month.
* Update: Yep. Quel suprise. A November challenge now in Conneticut, too.
