Um. BOO. YAH (via The AssPress):
Hours after California issued a directive Wednesday authorizing that date, word came that New York Gov. David Paterson instructed state agencies — including those governing insurance and health care — to immediately change policies and regulations to recognize gay marriages.
“We’re aware that our advocacy is incomplete and we will keep trying until people who love each other and want to get married, regardless of who they are, have that opportunity,” Paterson said in the video, which was posted on the gay rights organization’s Web site.
I know this isn’t the same as NY legalizing gay marriage, but much love to Gov. Paterson for thinking outside the closet.
The Rev. Duane Motley, director of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, which has lobbied against the, declined to comment on Paterson’s directive. State Conservative Party Chairman Michael Long didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Hard to comment when your thick skull has blown into a million pieces.
