New York Supremes Send A Message


A very civilized and enjoyable interlocutor of mine was almost going to bet on the NY decision. Good thing he didn't, or he'd be buying a LOT of good meals in the near future:

The highest courts in New York and Georgia dealt setbacks to supporters of same-sex marriage on Thursday, reigniting a national debate likely to continue through the November congressional election campaign.

The New York Court of Appeals upheld a state law that bans same-sex marriage and said the Legislature should decide whether to allow gays to marry.

Meanwhile, Georgia's Supreme Court overturned a lower court ruling that found the state's 2004 voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. The higher court thus upholds a law recognizing marriage as only the union of a man and a woman.

Now as to Charlie Sykes--Charlie, you don't REALLY want to be more 'liberal' than the Supremes of NYState, do you?

What's your comment on the lead story in today's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel? You know, the one about how the Milwaukee Archdiocese may have to file for bankruptcy in order to fend off the cost of lawsuits over the gay priests who diddled the altar boys?
