Connecticut and same sex marriage
I think more highly of this state, now. It is heartening to hear this news after the fiasco in CA. The AP says, “Superior Court Judge Jonathan Silbert has scheduled a hearing Wednesday morning to enter the final judgment in the case that allows same-sex marriages in Connecticut. Once entered, couples can pick up marriage license forms at town and city clerk’s offices, and some plan get married immediately afterward.” Florida and Arizona should be ashamed. And Arkansas is the worst of all. In case you didn’t know, if you are not married in that state, you can’t be a foster parent, nor can you adopt. Don’t any of these voters know anything about the origins of marriage? The idea that marriage is “holy” and “religious” would have shocked the Puritans who saw it as a civil contract — not a matter for the church.
