In seeking to redefine marriage to include same-sex partnering, a crucial element within the institution of marriage is being discarded as if it were irrelevant – the conjugal aspect.

From the Courant’s website: Despite continuing negotiations with the Catholic Church, the state Senate plans to press forward with a vote today on a bill that would require all hospitals to provide emergency birth control pills to rape victims… The bill the Senate plans to consider today would allow Catholic hospitals to contract with an […]

Liberal bloggers have tried hard to foster the false impression that the Judiciary Committee’s African-American members were unanimously opposed to Brian during his testimony against same-sex “marriage.” As is the case with so much else that our opponents would like the public to believe about that hearing, the truth intrudes on their plans.

Our opponents were incredulous when pro-family speakers at last month’s same-sex “marriage” hearing discussed the threat to free speech.

That’s the title of an item on the popular LifeSite News regarding last week’s hearing. Other websites are linking to Lifesite’s article and FIC is being inundated with e-mail messages supporting Brian. An excerpt from Lifesite: Representative Michael Lawlor, a proponent of homosexual ‘marriage’ repeatedly asserted falsely that Brown, a Catholic, believed homosexual people were intrinsically […]
