Connecticut court confirms separate is not equal

Well, duh.

Connecticut strikes down civil unions and requires equal marriage rights for same-sex couples.

To those who worry that this may affect the election by riling fundamentalist voters, remember Martin Luther King’s letter from Birmingham jail–majorities always ask minorities to wait just a little longer for their rights, then just a little more. But the perfect time will never come, and no one should have to wait to be acknowledged as an equal citizen, or to have full protection for their family.
