Today the State Supreme Court ruled in a 4-3 decision to uphold the right of same-sex couples to marry.
The battle isn't quite over, however.
There's a line on the ballot next month asking if you are for or against a state constitutional convention.
The reason for this is that people with a very narrow agenda are hoping to be able to politicize issues like marriage equality, and use fear and scare tactics to impose their strict religious views on the state.
Because, apparently you can't get into Heaven simply by living a clean life and being a good person; no, you must also inflict your fundamentalist views on as many people as possible, regardless of who you hurt. The reason being that God, while He supposedly has the power to strike down anything in the entire universe that displeases him, would rather have a few overzealous followers be the bad guys.
It's all about perception; and even God, while He still can't hit a one-iron, knows that what people think will affect His numbers. With all the competition out there these days, He wants to keep as much of His rapidly diminishing market share as possible.
So He speaks to only a few favored minions, and instructs them on how to counteract this unfortunate trend of equality and compassion that seems to be spreading across the planet like wildfire. Then these followers use every insidious tool imaginable to combat the forces of fairness and justice.
Including changing the constitution to make Connecticut a disaster area of endless ballot initiatives and management by public consensus, instead of allowing the people we elect to do their jobs and make policy that follows the principles of our country.
We need to make sure that people vote "NO!" on the question of the Constitutional Convention. Tell everyone you know WHY it's a terrible idea to change our system of government to a circus of popular opinion.
And you fundies out there, remember that your own book of God's teachings talks a lot about love, acceptance, and forgiveness. Maybe you should read it sometime.
