" The California Supreme Court has rejected all constitutional challenges to Proposition 8, the voter-approved constitutional amendment to the state constitution that upholds the definition of marriage as the union between a man and a woman. However the high court's ruling preserves intact the marriage licenses issued to 18,000 homosexuals by the state of California before November 5, 2008.
The justices voted 6-1 to uphold the amendment, which effectively bans same-sex "marriage," reversing a course that began last year in May, when the justices had voted 4-3 to throw out a California voter referendum passed in 2000. The referendum had passed by a hefty 61 percent to 32 percent majority. "
This blows my mind: Connecticut once considered stuffy conservative New England, now looks like a liberal looney bin compared to California, whose Supreme Court has just upheld the will of the people, to amend their Constitution to protect traditional marriage.
Unbelievable, but what it comes down to is this; California's Constitution allows for a referendum to amend the state's consitution, while Connecticut's does not. We have a Consitutional Convention.
Conservatives here, led by the Family Institute of Connecticut, supported a Constitutional Convention in the ballet last November, but the gay agenda managed to outspend us 10 to 1 and confuse the public with expensive TV spots, many of whom thought they should not allow a Convention, when it was our last hope of overturning our own Supreme Court's decision to allow gay marriage.
So New England is falling to the gay agenda state by state, while California returns to tradition.
I'm grateful for that, but will continue fighting here to make this state family friendly again.
