[…]

The Sunday Courant ran a front page above-the-fold article on a UConn poll it sponsored which claims the state is evenly split on same-sex “marriage”: Brian Brown, the executive director of the Family Institute of Connecticut, dismissed the poll results, saying the questions were skewed to draw a favorable response.

Annie Banno at After Abortion says yes: We blogged in December 2006 about the news that breast cancer is the “type of cancer most affected by”, that is, “fueled by estrogen” found in HRT [Hormone Replacement Therapy]. We showed how, if Plan B = 5 x OC [Oral Contraceptives], and OC = 4 to 8 […]

As reported in today’s Connecticut Post, some 30 clergy members rallied yesterday at the Capitol “in an attempt to increase pressure on lawmakers to approve a bill that would allow same-sex couples to marry.” “We are here today to say to Governor Rell, if and when this bill comes before you, we expect you will […]

CT Post Profiles WFIF

One of the most important Christian ministries in Connecticut was profiled in Sunday’s Connecticut Post: There are no stunts or giveaways, and no ratings book at WFIF, the city’s only commercial radio station.
