    “The majority 4-3 opinion said that the “segregation of heterosexual and homosexual couples into separate institutions constitutes a cognisable harm.”

    Justice Richard Palmer added: “our state scheme discriminates on the basis of sexual orientation… and the state has failed to provide sufficient justification for excluding same sex couples from the institution of marriage.”

    What a pity our own high courts couldn’t do the same. Gay people should have the right to marry if they so choose just as those who want civil unions or partnerships. Don’t deny us our right to marry for those of us who want it.

  2. Gay marriage begins next month in Connecticut… poor Hank. He’ll be beside himself with grief.

    If straight American judges realise why gay people should be able to marry, why is it that British LGB anti same-sex marriage proponents are so against a gay person’s choice and right to marry in the UK if they so choose, including Stonewall?

    And Connecticut gay divorce lawyers are revving up their engines. Think of all the Subarus, Shih Tzus, co-owned floral shops and coiffure boutiques that will be soon put into probate!
