Connecticut’s well-heeled pro-abortion activists are concerned that Sen. Lieberman, despite his 95% NARAL rating, is not fully committed to the killing of unborn children: WEST HARTFORD — One day after Bill Clinton rallied Democrats to Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman’s side, Ned Lamont resumed chipping away at the senator’s liberal credentials, cultivating Connecticut activists unimpressed with […]

With all of the Courant’s free advertising for same-sex “marriage” under the guise of news stories, it’s amazing that anti-family activists would bother to pay for today’s full page ad. But their recent legal losses have them spooked. One of those losses occurred here in Connecticut, where a judge said what FIC has said all […]

Who would have guessed the Courant’s most pro same-sex “marriage” columnist would find herself agreeing with the title of our favorite U.S. Senator’s book?

The Marriage Protection Amendment (MPA) received 187 votes in the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday, 10 more than last time. But all five of Connecticut’s representatives voted against it. Indeed, all New England’s Congressmen voted against it except for one: WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican U.S. Rep. Jeb Bradley of New Hampshire was the only New […]

Some liberal bloggers are reacting to Judge Pittman’s ruling against same-sex “marriage” with their usual cogency: Too bad religious people want to force rational people to abide by nonsense, aka, religion, thought up by a bunch of vicious, Bronze age, goat herders. Yes that sounds like a great way to make public laws – consult […]

In a stunning victory for self-government, the judge whose court anti-family activists chose to file their suit in has ruled against a judicial imposition of same-sex “marriage” in Connecticut: Judge rules gay couples not harmed by civil unions law By SUSAN HAIGH Associated Press Writer HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Gay and lesbian couples have not […]

Two obstacles to marriage protection in Massachusetts have just been removed. That, plus the recent pro-family decision by New York’s liberal high court, has Connecticut’s pro same-sex “marriage” activists in furious damage-control mode.
