As of 2004, Connecticut had one of the lowest divorce rates in the country, but I think that the Nutmeg state’s hetero couples will soon be feeling an irresistable urge to ditch marriage, since we all know that this sort of thing undermines our blessed institutions:
Same-sex couples won the right to marry in Connecticut in an historic ruling by the Supreme Court today. Citing the equal protection clause of the state constitution, the justices ruled that civil unions were discriminatory. In a 4-3 decision released at 11:30 a.m., the majority wrote that the state’s “understanding of marriage must yield to a more contemporary appreciation of the rights entitled to constitutional protection.”
In Massachusetts, of course, traditional family values were outlawed years ago. But I hear the legislature is now considering a proposal that would mandate that all men enter into a polygamous gay union with Bill Ayers at a mass-wedding ceremony performed by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
