The couple believed to have the title of "first same-sex spouses" held their ceremony at Niagara Falls, which was lit rainbow for the event.
Ave Maria! "In order to push same-sex marriage, you have to deny that children do best in a home with both a mother & a father" On this episode, Corinn talks with Peter Wolfgang, Director of Public Policy for the Family Institute of Connecticut, on this mission of the FIC and their current battle against same-sex marriage. Mentioned in the discussion is how the same-sex marriage agenda is fueling attacks on religious liberties in Boston, Minnesota, England, Canada, & Sweden, & how it's effecting what are children are being taught in school. "Children are not mere creatures of the state" was the decision passed down in a famous 1920s Supreme Court case (Pierce vs. Society of Sisters), & yet Peter explains how in the Boston school system today, the Constitution & parental rights are being subverted in the name of teaching our children sexual immorality. Such is always the case when "the State" deifies itself & vilifies Christ & His followers. Ave Maria!
The struggle over same-sex marriage is the struggle between reason and ignorance that has been playing out over the centuries. It is the struggle between the Dark Ages and the Age of Englightenment
The California Supreme Court has spoken – but the controversy over same-sex marriage in the state isn’t over. Newsy**** takes a look.
We went to the Connecticut State Capitol yesterday to get the scoop on the efforts to protect religious freedom in the face of the impending vote on the same-sex 'marriage' bill and Peter Wolfgang of the Family Institute of CT (FIC) generously gave the Roving Reporter and interview. As predicted, the bill passed the Senate and the House but not before having some important amendments attached that at least partially protect foundational liberties thanks to the action of FIC, the Knights of Columbus, the National Organization for Marriage and the 20,000 Connecticut citizens who called their legislators. The Hartford Currant has a full story of some of the secular points but as Peter Wolfgang points out in one of the FIC's emails: Make no mistake: The amendment is not perfect and SB 899 itself is the result of an illegitimate court ruling, not the will of the people. ... An FIC-supported amendment to require parents be notified before gay-friendly curricula are taught in schools and be allowed to opt out was defeated in the Senate and the House. Watch for more information on that vote and what you can do about it. Well, most of the points that FIC and friends pushed for were added to the amendment which had been rejected by the Judiciary Committee a few weeks earlier. A good day for liberty. Deo Gratias!

A disabled Navy veteran wants equal benefits for her same-sex partner– but the Defense of Marriage Act says her wife--technically-- isn’t her spouse. Democracy Now explains the disagreement.
“A disabled Navy veteran denied government benefits is preparing to file a lawsuit challenging two federal laws defining marriage as between members of the opposite sex. Connecticut resident, former sailor, Carmen Cardona recently applied for an increase to her monthly disability compensation after getting married last year.”
She is considered 80 percent disabled because of carpel tunnel syndrome and military veterans with service-connected disabilities of 30 percent or more are eligible for spousal benefits. The New York Times says Cardona made the request for those benefits on the advice of a veteran’s organization counselor.
But Veteran Affairs denied her application quoting Title 38 of the U.S. Code that indicates...
“The term ‘spouse’ means a person of the opposite sex who is a wife or husband.”
This isn’t the first time Veteran Affairs has denied an application like this -- but a Yale Law student on Cardona’s legal team says this is the first time a plaintiff has tried to use the veteran’s court of appeals to attack the law.
She tells Connecticut’s News Times...
"It's our understanding that Ms. Cardona is the first veteran to demand the VA recognize (same-sex marriages). While President Obama has said that the Department of Justice will not defend DOMA in court, that does not mean that federal agencies will (stop) enforcing DOMA."
A professor of constitutional and veteran’s law at Stetson University says in a New York Times article-- this case is part of a “cultural legal shift.” He says...
“These challenges are bubbling up all over the place. With the recognition of same-sex marriage in New York, a big state, you’ll see this more frequently.”
Cardona says she initially wasn’t trying to make a larger legal point with this case -- she just wanted equal treatment. WTNH has her comments.
“I am fighting for that right. This is the land of the free and I believe that we all are equal and we should all get the same rights.”
Cardona’s legal team says there are approximately 1 million gay veterans in the United States and this case could set an important precedent for other gay couples seeking veteran benefits.
