Gay Marriage Allowed in Connecticut

Share

Connecticut Supreme Court ordered that gay marriages should be allowed. Thus Connecticut became the third state after Massachusetts and California where gay couples gained the right to get married.

This resolution was a legally significant action as it was the first time when a court expressed its disposition to same-sex marriages and gave them so many privileges. As to Californians, they're going to appeal against this ruling and re-establish the gay-marriage ban. However, Connecticut's government believes that people are unlikely to set the new-promulgated order at defiance.

The new ruling already has its opponents. Jodi Rell, a Republican, considers that this order doesn't reflect opinions of the majority. Nevertheless he is convinced that any attempts to amend the Constitution will not succeed.

Gay weddings should start in Connecticut in less than a month. The opportunity to get married will be used by a lot of out-of-staters, but their unions will be recognized just in few other states.

The new ruling was a great surprise for the plaintiffs. There were eight couples in Connecticut that had to lodge a complaint to get their wedding licenses. So now they are deliriously happy and are looking forward to getting married. The couples who sued blamed the state's marriage law as it infringed their rights depriving them of social and emotional benefits of marriage. Yet the majority of states are against gay marriages. Electors in 27 states have voted for additional amendments to support that ban.

Can any onf you give me a politically intelligent reason, supported by facts and statistics (legitamate ones), and not religon and personal opinion, that there should be a reason to not allow gay rights? If so, I will throughly respect your opinion, though I may not agree with it. The government is a seperation of church and state and is a country that prides itself in may different types of freedoms. You don't need to agree with the homosexual life style, but who are you to say that someone else does not have the right to get married and adopt children? There isn't any data to support an idea that children brought up by homosexuals will be mentally unstable. quite the contrary in fact. So you want to keep the gays from getting married huh? well how would you feel about heavier gun restrictions and less religious freedom? The facts are, not based on any religious grounds, that by allowing homosexuals to get married will not affect anyone that does not wish to be affected by it. It is not your right to decide how others are going to live their lives. Especially in America, supposedly the land of the free.

i am a very strong christian and i believe that gay right should not be allowed, God clearly states that he made man and wemon for a reason, Am i right?? He made adam and eve not Adam and Steve, I deftinnally want to be able to have the time to arguee with someone about this i believe that this is a really serious event and i dont think anyone should take this as a joke cause i am a 24 year old man and i dont expent my kids to be lezbos or gay. Understand that this may change the world if they keep passing these laws that gay marrage is allowed, I hope and Pray that God will only do what is right and if this is what he want to happen then so be it, but i beg to differ, Thanks for taking your time in reading this :)

The conclusion is: we must ban homosexualism and stop giving more and more rights to gays and lesbians - and it's totally the contrary what happens nowadays... they are becoming more and more insistent and aggresive to this, because, as they say, "they fight for their rights"... suppose homosexualism would be officially declared to be a psychic disease, would these people have rights in this case???

That's just the thing! Of course they are also people, but that becomes like a modern trend. Because that's fashionably somehow. They see they are not alone, that there are people, who support them and their likings and begin to insist on their rights. You see, how our society has changed! Except these gays and lesbians there are a lot of such groups of people like these emo, goths and so on..The list is huge. It's good that we are supposed to live in free society, but god damn, how will the representatives of this society look in few decades? That's the question!

Yeah gays and lesbians are also people and they shouldn't be blamed for being different. But the question here is not about difference or our unfair attitude towards them, but about their influence upon the society and its values. Now this "gay trend" attracts more and more supporters. And it scares me. What if every second person starts considering himself gay??We'll have no future!

I am not against gay marriages, in the end they are all people too and they have their rights to happiness as anyone else does... it's just that their happiness is a bit different from a normal one... but i am AGAINST gay couples being given the rights to adopt and raise children, totally against it. Their mentalities are already formed and they cannot be changed, whereas children's mentalities and sexual personalities are being formed in a great part thanks to their parents and education they had in their families. What kind of an education will a kid receive in a gay family?? will he be mentally healthy afterwards? we know that being a gay is determined genetically only in circa 8 per cent of the cases, in rest it's just a psychological "effect" of one's life experience, education and so on. So, what will we have in a few decades? a number in continuous rising of people with untraditional orientation... maybe in some centuries there won't be left straight-orientated people at all on our globe... humanity will have no other choice than disappear...
Perhaps, i'm a little bit too exaggerated on this, but there is a truth in it no one can deny...

Oh, I think it's funny! All these gays, lesbians, which have non-traditional orientation, they just destroy our society. It is known, they are also people, but when they want to claim their rights and to show others that they also want to build their so-called "families"... In reality it is not so funny...They show our children what a society the latter are supposed to live and build their own families.
