J-Com of Ct. Legislature: haywire

First, the good news: raised bill Ct. 1138, a piece of proposed legislation the Judiciary Committee chairman, Sen. Andrew McDonald styled "An Act Concerning Death With Dignity" has been withdrawn and will not come up again this session.

Now, we have to deal with the second bill to alter existing marriage legislation in the Constitution State. Senate Bill 899 would not only implement Sheridan, it would classify as unlawful discrimination, e.g. the teaching of traditional sexual morality in schools. It also does the following:

(1) The best interests of a child are promoted by having persons in the child's life who manifest a deep concern for the child's growth and development;
(2) The best interests of a child are promoted when a child has as many persons loving and caring for the child as possible; and
(3) The best interests of a child are promoted when the child is part of a loving, supportive and stable family, whether that family is a nuclear, extended, split, blended, single parent, adoptive or foster family.

I thought you gentle readers should see these last for yourselves.

Maybe I'll come back to this with a fulsomely reasoned, dispassionately reasonable response when I am in a better frame of mind.
