    End of civilization continues in CT

    Civil unions have been signed into law by the Connecticut governor. No court case. Very cool. Even the marriage-or-bust types are reeling it in enough to recognize that there’s much to celebrate:

    Love Makes a Family, a gay rights organization that wanted legislators pass a gay marriage bill, called civil unions an important step toward protecting the rights of same-sex couples. But Anne Stanback, the group’s executive director, said the fight is not over. [“Love Makes a Family” sounds like the kind of entity that should have a headmistress, not an executive director–SRK]

    “As important as the rights are, this is not yet equality,” she said.

    Naturally, it’s that last quotation that 365Gay has seen fit to use as its quote of the day. Whatever. On the opposite side of the country, the Montana domestic partnership bills were voted down by its House of Representatives this week; that it passed the Senate was apparently big news. Things go in fits and starts.

      All I see on the local New Haven and Hartford Tee Vee is a bunch of people complaining about not getting full equality. Other than SS benefits (and getting in on the marrriage penalty, which is not a benefit), I do not see what they are carping about. The SS issue needs to be resolved, though.

    2. John says:

      Oh, yes, my vision of resolving the SS issue is dissolving the SS sytem as we know it, pretty much. Private accounts with designated beneficiaries would remove that little thorn, but that ain’t gonna happen.

      Yeah, but we can both dream, huh?
