We got issues


A NY appellate court has ruled that the state must recognize gay marriages contracted outside of NY (in this case in Canada) since NY law does not specifically say otherwise. The ruling is not especially broad, since it does not challenge the ability of the state legislature to pass such a law, so it’s not much of a challenge to the “sanctity of marriage,” but I suspect that cries of “judicial activism” and the issue of the threatened gayification of marriage and subsequent end of civilization as we know it have just reentered the election campaign. Yippee.
