Same-Sex Couples 'Marry' in Connecticut
Homosexual couples began getting "married" in Connecticut today, after the state Supreme Court struck down the marriage law Oct. 10.
Connecticut joins Massachusetts in court-ordered same-sex "marriage"; a constitutional amendment approved by California voters last week put an end to the practice in that state.
The Family Institute of Connecticut, which is associated with Focus on the Family, called the high court's decision undemocratic."Unlike California, we did not have a remedy," said Peter Wolfgang, the group's executive director. "It must be overturned with patience, determination and fortitude."
Gay activists reportedly are turning their efforts to five other Northeastern states: New York, Maryland, New Jersey, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. Gay "marriage" legislation already has been introduced in all five states.
