Point and Counterpoint: Abortion and Alternatives - Article 40, for Sunday, October 26, 2008

THE CONNECTICUT SUPREME COURT RECENTLY ERRED, BOTH PROCEDURALLY AND SUBSTANTIVELY,  IN ITS 4/3 DECISION ALLOWING GAY "MARRIAGE" IN THIS STATE.  Procedurally, this was - and is - a subject for legislative deliberation and action...not judicial fiat.  Substantively, the status-quo-ante, providing for gay civil unions, was in violation of neither the U.S. Constitition's 5th or 14th Amendments nor their counterparts in the Connecticut Constitution. 
Please see the response of the Connecticut Catholic Conference Bishops (  See also our offering on this subject in Point and Counterpoint #34,offered on March 9, 2008 (on this website under "Abortion, Morality and Ethics").
