Marriage in the Land of Steady Habits


On Tuesday, CT voters get to decide if the state should hold its first constitutional convention in 40 years–the fond hope of those who would like to do away with same-sex marriage, as recently mandated by the state supreme court. And indeed, according to a new Hartford Courant poll, the voters seem to want to go ahead and have the convention. But not because they are against same sex marriage. What they want are citizen ballot initiatives. They oppose amending the constitution to ban same-sex marriage by 55-41.
