CT Right Plans Gay Nup Fight


Here’s something you’ll find totally unsurprising.

Connecticut’s social conservatives announced plans to reverse the state Supreme Court’s ruling that the state must allow gay marriages. And, to that end, they will urge voters to support a constitutional convention, an event that come around every 20 years. The court’s “robed masters” must be stopped, says the Family Institute of Connecticut’s Peter Wolfgang, seen here in an ill-fitting suit.:

      Wolfgangs brain fits in his head about the way he fits in his suit. Gawd!
      If he is American he had pretty well better respect the consititution and the Judges who interpret it. Just a ratshit hatemonger with nothing better to do.
