If the marriage equality bill is contingent upon the senate actually acting on the deficit, then opponents of equal rights for gays have nothing to worry about.


If Mr. McGuire is such a fan of "constitutional freedoms," then perhaps he might be bothered to read Article I, Section 11 of the NYS Constitution: "No person shall be denied the equal protection of the laws of this state or any subdivision thereof."

I am not aware of any section of the state constitution which would preclude gay marriage nor define marriage as exclusively for heterosexuals.

Perhaps his group should be named "New Yorkers who'd rather cling to biases than to fairness or justice." Might be too long for a bumper sticker, though.
