Marriages Invalidated in Oregon: She Crashes With Her Own Wings

"The Oregon Supreme Court on Thursday invalidated the marriages of 3,000 same-sex couples and refused to decide whether gays and lesbians should have the same rights and benefits as married couples...

The ruling also removes any pressure from the 2005 Legislature to act."


I cannot write about this without expressing my profound sorrow for the human beings who were just told that the state to which they pay their taxes has legally voided their most intimate relationship in the world. It's deeply hurtful and impossible to understand. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Unfortunately, we can't win everywhere. We can win in Connecticut. Let's not allow a DOMA to go through, as looks very likely unless there is widespread spontaneous spine-growth in the state.

Defeat SB 963 as amended - Keep CT Free!
