Going to the chapel and we're gonna get "civil unioned"
On Wednesday, The Connecticut Legislature's Judiciary Committee voted 25-13, in favor of legislation that would create a civil unions system.
One of those voting against the measure was Sen. Mary Ann Handley, although her reasons for doing so are not what you might think. Handley actually really likes the homo-gays and wants to see them fully married, not just "civil unioned." In the wisest words we've heard regarding the issue, Handley compared civil unions to giving women the right to vote, but only for the school board.
Handley's thoughts are shared by much of Connecticut's gay community, who are happy that their lawmakers are so tolerant, but feel that civil unions could be a step backwards in the struggle for full equality. It's a debatable situation with few easy answers, as the territory is widely unchartered. But we do have ONE question:
Is there still cake at a civil union? We really like cake.
