Court correct to uphold marriage law

(Continued)

Cuomo praised the court in a statement.

“With the court’s decision, same-sex couples no longer have to worry that their right to marry could be legally challenged in this state. The freedom to marry in this state is secure for generations to come.”

Not surprisingly, the Rev. Jason J. McGuire, executive director of the Constitutional Freedoms group, reacted a bit differently in a statement.

“We’re disappointed, but not surprised, by today’s decision,” he said. “Every time the people of a state have had the opportunity to vote on this issue, they have rejected same-sex ‘marriage,’ but when rogue legislators and activist courts get involved they reject the will of the people.”

McGuire has it wrong. The people of New York have realized that the sun has indeed come up, and powered by freedom, it’s shining brighter than ever.
