The Moonie Times reports that a couple of wingnut groups have decided to double down on the desperate, filing suit against New York’s new marriage equality law:
The day after New York became the sixth U.S. state to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, two traditional-values groups filed a lawsuit to overturn the law, saying that politicians used a “corrupt legislative process” to enact it.
New York State Open Meetings laws were violated, said New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms and Torah Jews for Decency in their lawsuit. There were also irregularities in the Senate voting procedures, and “unprecedented Senate lockouts” in which lobbyists and the public were denied access to lawmakers.
“New York law requires that the government be open and transparent to keep political officials responsible,” said Mathew D. Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, which is representing the groups.
“The back-room tactics were rampant in the passages of this law,” he said. “The law should be set aside and the process should begin again to allow the people a voice in the process.”
It’s never simply that they lost fair and square, and it doesn’t matter which branch of government inches LGBT people closer to full equality; there was always a “corrupt process” or a “rogue legislature” or “activisssssss judges.” They simply can’t sleep at night without feeling like they’ve hurt gay people that day.
Says more about their demons than it says about us, I think.
