We had beautiful weather in NYC yesterday, but today?
A STORM IS GATHERING!!!
Yep, Nation for Marriage (NOM) is going to have to step up their feeble, poorly-produced efforts if they really want to keep same-sex marriage from becoming a nation-wide reality.
Because The New York Times is reporting today that Governor David Paterson will announce on Thursday his intent to introduce legislation on legalizing same-sex marriage in the state of New York.
This is admittedly just the beginning of what might be a rather attenuated battle, and while there is no guarantee that it will pass, I am hopeful. With recent victories in Iowa and Vermont, momentum is building–and for once, it’s moving in the right direction.
Whatever happens, it is heartening that the Governor is knowingly making a statement about the necessity of equal treatment under the law for same-sex couples. I don’t think there’s any going back on this matter, and I’m thrilled. Makes me want to run out and dance in the rain.
