Another Domino Falls

It's inevitable that the US will recognize the rights of LGBT couples to marry eventually--the demographics are on our side, and individual states keep moving in that direction. Connecticut is the latest.

The Connecticut Supreme Court overturned a ban on same-sex marriage Friday in a victory for gay-rights advocates that will allow couples to marry in the New England state.

The court found that the state's law limiting marriage to heterosexual couples discriminates on the basis of sexual orientation. The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have the right to marry.
At the heart of these rulings is the acknowledgment that it's fundamentally unfair to deny LGBT couples the right to marry just because the thought makes some people feel icky. Good for Connecticut, and I hope someday we Floridians get there. In the meantime, we've got an Amendment to defeat.
