NY court backs recognition of same-sex marriages

NY court backs recognition of same-sex marriages

Tue Sep 2, 2008 6:19pm



2007 NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York officials should recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states and countries where they are legal, even though New York State does not allow gay marriage, a state court judge ruled on Tuesday.



Justice Lucy Billings rejected arguments by the national Alliance Defense Fund that New York Gov. David Paterson overstepped his authority in May when he instructed officials to recognize same-sex marriages conducted outside New York.



"Nothing is more antithetical to family stability than requiring (couples) to abandon that solemnized commitment," Billings wrote in her decision.



Many state agencies and municipalities have followed that policy for years, civil liberties groups said.



The lawsuit against Paterson marks the fourth failed legal challenge of Paterson's directive brought by the Arizona-based Alliance Defense Fund.

Another small step for homosexuals and one giant step for mankind!



Hopefully, the trend will continue. . .

But GODS he is SO much better than Spitzer!

No more so than when we talk about defeating the evil that is Islamic Jihadism.

I must have missed it.....a group of radical gays hijacked four planes...crashing them into skyscrapers and killing thousands?



Oh, that's right....they DIDN'T.



To try and compare gays fighting for equal rights to Islamic Jihadists trying to kill us is not only stupid....it's REALLY stupid.
