Supreme 'civil' war begins in CT

by Jeremy Hooper

 Images State-Flags Connecticut-FlagToday in Connecticut, the Supreme Court will take up a case in which eight gay couples are presenting a challenge to the state's civil union's law. The couples claim that the less-than-equal civil unions system violates their constitutional rights by denying them the full benefits of marriage.

And they're right. Civil unions may = a positive step in the right direction, but at the end of the day, they also always = ≠.

We'll have to wait and see if the court will side with the gay couples, or if they'll make the wrong decision. We'll let you know just as soon as they do what's best for society, or rule against marriage equality.
