That's the assessment of one prominent opponent of same-sex marriage regarding the Senate Republican conference, which is well into its third hour of a closed-door conference on the issue. (This guy cites other issues including abortion-related ones where Senate Republicans have deserted social conservatives in recent years, and says he's hearing from people who will switch their registration from the GOP if this bill goes through, and he will likely be one of them. He agreed that the desertion has gone on back to the day of GOP Gov. Nelson Rockefeller, under whom abortion was legalized in New York before Roe vs. Wade). The prominent gay marriage opponent is pessimistic about his chances of blocking the Marriage Equality Act (and he wasn't pessimistic a few weeks ago), so the "stampede of rinos" would have to include more than the two Republicans so far (Jim Alesi and Roy McDonald) who have said they are switching their votes from 2009 and now support Gov. Andrew Cuomo's bill. (RINO being an acronym for Republican in name only.) A colleague of this guy was more optimistic, seeing the length of the Republican conference as a potentially positive sign.
Update: Majority Leader Sen. Dean Skelos eventually came out to announce no decision -- more conferencing to come (tomorrow, presumably). Sen. Andrew Lanza says he wants a stronger religious exemption. But Gov. Andrew Cuomo has sent a "message of necessity," further short-circuiting the legislative process, and allowing the Assembly to take up his bill this afternoon.
