AP Misinterprets Conn. Gay Marriage Ruling

The Associated Press' only quote of the majority ruling is: "Interpreting our state constitutional provisions in accordance with firmly established equal protection principles leads inevitably to the conclusion that gay persons are entitled to marry the otherwise qualified same sex partner of their choice."

One would think the ruling was about equal protection. The lawsuit claimed that marriage laws "denied them of the financial, social and emotional benefits of marriage." But AP notes later on that "Connecticut was the first state to voluntarily pass laws to affirm civil unions" that gave gays benefits equal to married couples. So what is this really about?

The majority opinion starts out: "in light of the history of pernicious discrimination faced by gay men and lesbians, and because the institution of marriage carries with it a status and significance that the newly created classification of civil unions does not embody, the segregation of heterosexual and homosexual couples into separate institutions constitutes a cognizable harm."

It's about the bogeymen haters hating on gays, causing them less social status. The opinion goes on to explain that people's equality is constitutionally protected based on gender, so it should be the same for sexual orientation. That's what equal protection has become: giving someone privileges because he gets supposedly negative reactions from people who disagree with his choices.
