Connecticut Governor Rell speaks out against Supreme Court gay marriage ruling


The Governor of Connecticut M. Jodi Rell has released her thoughts on the Supreme Court's ruling to overturn the same sex marriage ban in her state.

Rell, who signed civil union legislation into law in Connecticut, says she doesn't support the Supreme Court's decision...

I disagree with today's State Supreme Court ruling but as governor, I will uphold it. I continue to believe that marriage is the union of a man and a woman.

I also believe that the historic civil union law that I proudly signed in 2005 is equitable and just. We were the first state to enact such a law through legislative action and not a court mandate.

But Governor Rell says she does believe the decision is final.

The Supreme Court has spoken. I do not believe their voice reflects the majority of the people of Connecticut. However, I am also firmly convinced that attempts to reverse this decision - either legislatively or by amending the state Constitution - will not meet with success. I will therefore abide by the ruling.

I can't wait until it is legal for the gay community to get married in all 50 states!
