ACLJ files brief in Kerrigan case

Although the legislature is not in session, persons opposed to maintaining the traditional family structure continue to work. The case of Kerrigan v. State of Connecticut is still active and seeks the redfinition of marriage in Connecticut, so as to include same-sex couples. The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) has now filed a friend of the court brief asking the Superior Court to dismiss the case. (Click here to see court docket sheet; no copy of the brief is available on the Web at this time.)

ACLJ attorney Vincent McCarthy stated that:

“Their argument is all that’s needed for marriage is two individuals who seek an intimate relationship with each other, and their sex doesn’t matter. But marriage was not established primarily for mutual gratification. It was always grounded in the interest of the State in regulating the procreation, protection and growth of children and to ensure that they had a mother and father."

Please continue to pray for this case, which can have tremendous repercussions and which we cannot allow to go off the radar.
