Video – News #1 – Religious Liberty Under Fire
This is a special AIRMARIA report on the status of religious liberty in America, relative to the ongoing push on the part of the homosexual lobby for full same-sex marriage in Connecticut. Last year same-sex civil unions were legalized by the state assembly with an amendment defining marriage as a union of one man and one woman.
In Connecticut, same-sex couples already have all the rights and benefits of married people, just not the name "marriage." This year they are back for what they call "equality," but in reality the legalization of same-sex marriage in Connecticut will only codify the defense of traditional marriage as a form of discrimination.
Witness the erosion of your religious liberty! This assault will not stop at the state line. The same-sex marriage lobby wishes to challenge the federal Defense of Marriage Act. This affects you, no matter where you live in America.
On March 26, Brian Brown, Executive director of the Family Institute of Connecticut, testified before the judiciary committee of the state legislature in regard to raised House Bill 7395: An Act Concerning Marriage Equality. He was grilled on the question of commitment to civil rights and his religious convictions. Brian defended both traditional marriage and religious liberty in an eloquent and courageous way. He continues to be attacked on the FIC blog. In this video Brian also tells us what we can do to protect religious liberty.
Don't underestimate this attack on religious liberty. This has implications for us all. Bill Donohue of the Catholic League has picked up on the threat and is bringing it to national attention. This video is a good synthesis of what happened last Monday.

It’s interesting to note the language that proponents of the deviant sexual culture use to defend their agenda. They always talk about “love” and being sensitively open to other people’s rights, but they never or hardly ever directly address the questionable sexual behavior/act that is at the very heart of the argument!
There is a Catholic warrior in CT and his name is Brian Brown. God bless him! And God bless all others who are not afraid to stand up in the public square for the Truths of our faith.
Excellent job on that report! A most refreshing perspective in contrast to the constant cynical dronings of the liberal media. Keep up the great work. More like this please.
