The New York State Court today voted 4-2 that marriage inequality in the state of New York does not violate the state constitution. This is a huge blow to gay activists who thought the court would do the right thing and extend full marriage privileges to same-sex couples or at least civil unions. The court ruled that this is a case that should be decided by the legislature and not the courts.
It amazes me how such a ruling could come down in one of the most liberal states in the country. I look forward to the day when my grandchildren will be able to enjoy the benefits of living in a world where there really is equality for all people. I can just imagine this issue not being a big deal at all 20 years from now. But for the time being we must fight the good fight and endure all the road blocks along the way to ensuring that all citizens are able to live the American dream.
