Hope for Traditional Marriage in New York State

from Focus on the Family Citizen Link
Thankfully something is being done to stop the acceptance of homosexual marriage in New York.
Attorneys with the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) filed a lawsuit Tuesday to stop New York Gov. David Paterson’s directive ordering state agencies to recognize same-sex “marriages” performed outside the state.
Paterson ordered state agencies May 14 to change up to 1,300 regulations and policies to include same-sex couples legally "married" elsewhere. His directive ignored the 20 million New Yorkers who have defined traditional marriage via state statutes.
“The future of marriage should be decided by the Legislature, not executives who take matters into their own hands,” ADF Senior Counsel Brian Raum said. “New Yorkers have a fundamental right to set marriage policy through the legislative process, but the governor has ordered a radical redefinition of marriage without the consent of the governed."
