A Mirror of Justice post provides some links related to the proposed Connecticut legislation implementing gay marriage in that state in response to a 2008 state supreme court decision, Kerrigan v. Commissioner of Publilc Health.

In partricular, the MOJ post includes a link to the text of a short letter on religious liberty authored by four legal scholars. The letter warns that, if the Connecticut bill “is passed in its current form — without religious-conscience protections — many religious organizations and individuals will be forced to engage in conduct that violates their deepest religious beliefs, and religious organizations would be limited in crucial aspects of their religious exercise.”

The predicted result in sorting out this inevitable clash of rights: “the volume of new litigation will be immense.” I think that’s going to happen regardless of what the Connecticut legislature does.
