An Anti-Abortion Attorney Challenges Burlington’s No-Protest Zone

    7DVT.com: Their attorney is Michael DePrimo, a First Amendment lawyer based in Hamden, Conn. He formerly worked as special assistant to the president of the American Family Association, a Christian group that rails against abortion, pornography and same-sex marriage. In a 2004 article for American Family Association Journal, DePrimo wrote that acceptance of same-sex marriage “may well signal the beginning of the end of Western civilization.” . . . DePrimo fought the Massachusetts case with financial backing from the Alliance Defense Fund, an Arizona-based Christian legal firm dedicated to defending “family values.” He’s taken the Burlington case pro bono and wouldn’t speculate about whether the ADF, now called the Alliance Defending Freedom, might bankroll it. DePrimo says his clients are peaceful people who have the right to engage in “sidewalk counseling” with women and couples entering Planned Parenthood. “Planned Parenthood does not want pro-life speech to reach their patrons,” DePrimo says by phone from Connecticut. “That’s what this ordinance is really about. That’s not what it says, but that’s the real purpose behind it.”

Connecticut Joins States in Same-Sex “Marriage” Support

CT: Should Replacing a Virgin Mary with a Gnome Be a Hate Crime?

    Findlaw: It happened several weeks ago when Fraga woke up to find her Virgin Mary statue sitting headless in the front yard. A week after that a gnome was placed on the statue where the head used to be. Needlessly cruel mischief? Likely. But hate crime? The police don’t agree. Although there are no leads and no suspects, police don’t think it was a hate crime, reports NECN. They think it was vandalism rather than motivated by bigotry.
