I waited a few days before posting this to see if the state of Connecticut grew a backbone. No such luck.
Links to churches that welcome gay members have been removed from a Connecticut state government Web site.
A spokesman for the Department of Children and Families said Wednesday officials decided “questions of separation of church and state did come into play” with the links to “open and affirming churches,”
The links were challenged by the Family Institute of Connecticut…and other bigots.
“We said all along that if same-sex marriage was imposed in Connecticut, the next thing that would happen would be an effort to re-educate Connecticut children,” institute’s Executive Director Peter Wolfgang said. “That’s what today’s victory was all about: making sure they don’t try and re-indoctrinate children into accepting lifestyles and beliefs that their parents are utterly opposed to.”
There was a time when Connecticut was proudly hailed as the Constitution State. After all, the state’s original constitution served as the model for the U.S. Constitution.
It took clean-living Democrats caving in to Cold Warriors – hack Democrats like Chris Dodd’s daddy, Tom – to remove the essential bits that made the document too dangerous to tolerate. Stuff like people having the right – and duty – to rise up and throw out tyrants.
