And Now Connectiicut

On Friday the Connecticut Supreme Court overturned a state ban on same sex marriage stating that the ban discriminated on the basis of sexual orientation and violated the Connecticut state constitution.
Justice Richard N. Palmer wrote in the majority opinion that, "Interpreting our state constitutional provisions in accordance with firmly established equal protection principles leads inevitably to the conclusion that gay persons are entitled to marry the otherwise qualified same sex partner of their choice. To decide otherwise would require us to apply one set of constitutional principles to gay persons and another to all others.
Connecticut now joins California and Massachusetts in the establishment of justice for all couples who want to marry.
Let no man put asunder.
