BREAKING NEWS RE: EQUAL RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES UNDER THE LAW (14th Amendment).
The New York State Senate has tonight, on June 24th 2011, finally passed an equality in marriage act. Gratuitous sex discrimination based solely on gender or on gender orientation will hereinafter be illegal in New York State. Apparently some loopholes were carved out which would prevent bigots who cite religion as a pretense from being prosecuted for continuing acts of discrimination and hatred. Although not all church weddings will be available, officially performed and recognized marriages performed by public officials will be recognized in New York State in approximately 30 days. Governor Andrew Cuomo is set to sign the bill. New york becomes the sixth State in the country to recognize LGBT marriages.
