Rainbow Flag Flies At Governor’s Residence

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A rainbow flag, symbolizing gay pride, is being flown over the Connecticut governor’s official residence in Hartford.

The flag was raised Wednesday after the U.S. Supreme Court voted to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act. Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has been a strong proponent of same-sex marriage and gay rights. He hosted a gay wedding last weekend at the residence for one of his top advisers.

n a written statement, Malloy said he implores “every state to give full faith and credit to valid same-sex marriages” and that every Connecticut resident “deserves to have their marriage recognized as they travel among the states.” (See the full Malloy statement)

While Connecticut has recognized same-sex marriage since 2008, Malloy said the federal DOMA prevented the legally married couples from being recognized by the U.S. government.

Antonin Scalia is on his way to Connecticut as I type. And he's not happy.

Why exactly should you be called? Get off your fucking ass and DO SOMETHING in those parts of the country so it does fly.

Texas is still fighting evolution. I doubt the rainbow flag will be flying anytime soon.

I'd like to see the flags in Texas flying at half-mast, for obvious reasons.

Texas is such a horrible state.

No, but Texas Republicans are fucking toxic.

Last night, the gallery erupted and stopped the Republicans from ramming through their abortion bill in a special session.

Perry has called another special session and they will no doubt prevent anything like that happening again.

On the plus side, Wendy Davis has become a national figure and will probably run for governor.

Give me a break, OP. Everyone knows there is NO difference between Democrats and Republicans.
