Bits and Pieces

Just a couple of odds and ends for readers today:

1.  MetroNews reports today that James DeGasperin has been found guilty of 3 counts of murder.  Over a year  ago, Lori Gasteel, her 4-year-old son, and unborn child were found dead outside of DeGasperin’s home, beaten with a baseball bat and shot.  While this may seem to be a run-of-the-mill (though ghastly) murder case, it is significant in that it is among the first cases to be tried under the Unborn Victims of Violence Act.  That is, DeGasperin was found guilty of second-degree murder for also killing Casteel’s pre-born child.

2.  Yesterday, the Charleston Gazette published an editorial written by President and General Counsel, Jeremiah G. Dys.  The editorial is worth the read, but so are the many comments left by readers on the Gazette’s website.  While some support the thoughts of the editorial, it is educational (to say the least) to read the arguments by those who would redefine marriage.  We urge your review of them and, if inclined, post comments in support of Dys.

3.  In the last few days of Arizona’s legislative session, Arizona leaders gave the citizens the right to be heard on the question of marriage.  Now joining California and Florida to define marriage as between one man and  one woman will be Arizona.  Should they pass, that will bring the total number of states that have prevented the redefinition of marriage to 30.
