FIC seeks to muddy lawsuit's waters

by Jeremy Hooper

  The queer nuptials foes at The Family Institute of Connecticut are asking the state Supreme Court to let them intervene in a lawsuit in which seven gay couples are seeking to legalize same-sex marriage.

In keeping with the judicial meddling theme, we'd like to ask the state's Court of Bullsh*t Names if we can interfere with this particular group's right to use the word "Family" in their name, as their kinsfolk-bolstering label would seem to hide an actual agenda of wanting to eliminate families and ideas with which they don't understand or agree.

The FIC was last year denied an intervention by a superior court judge, so let's hope the fate of this Supreme endeavor is similarly unsuccessful. As for our attempt, we have never been denied or allowed, mostly because the "Court of Bullsh*t Names" is both fictional and ridiculous.
