New York Conservatives Apparently Don’t Want any Young People to Vote for Them

 

New Yorkers just found a new reason to avoid conservatives: the state party has resolved to refuse endorsements of any candidate who supports marriage.

So, what does this mean for that vast majority of young people (like the delightful Minnesota Republican Madeline Koch) who support equal rights? It means that they’re going to have to look outside the Conservative Party to find an attractive candidate.

It also means that now, the only people who are going to be voting for conservatives are people whose life expectancy — how do we put this delicately? — probably doesn’t include too many more elections.

And with more and more politicians coming around to our side every year, before long the Conservative Party won’t have any candidates to endorse at all.

Meanwhile, if you’re looking to get involved in New York, there’s no shortage of opportunity to lend a hand: call legislators, donate cash, or join a phonebank.

      I’m so tired of being treated as a wedge issue rather than a person. Sigh..

      Here it is, The Conservative Party of New York’s manifesto, in all of it’s monumental stupidity:

      ~ “Whereas, the institution of marriage predates reliable recorded history;”

      …Uh, that illogical. That’s like stating unequivocally that dinosaurs lived in the Garden of Eden without an iota of proof. The actual fact though is that Homosexual relationships are as old as heterosexual relationships – it’s simply human nature. Many Native American tribes performed same-sex marriages centuries before the European plague of conquest in the New World. Other cultures worldwide have also honored same-sex relationships throughout history. Crack open a history book once in while.

      ~ “Whereas, marriage also has a long history in the religious world and has become so ingrained in the social fabric of the people of our nation, and indeed of the world, that the benefits of marriage to society are strikingly apparent;”

      …Of course. But organized religion is entirely unnecessary and unimportant to the legal definition of civil marriage in modern society, and in regards to its inherent contractual benefits, privileges and obligations. So that is a ridiculously moot point.

      ~ “Whereas, New York’s highest court has ruled that marriage, as defined by our constitution, is between a man and a woman and that this union has a compelling basis;”

      …Wrong, the New York’s highest court left it up to the legislature to decide. They may have cowardly passed the buck, but they in no way adjudicated that marriage was solely a heterosexuals-only “constitutional right”.

      ~ “Whereas, the compelling basis is that the union of one man and one woman is the most stable and effective relationship to create and raise children;”

      …Wrong, numerous sociological studies have proven that children raised in same-sex paired families do just as well as opposite sex paired families. And in many case those children are far more well-adjusted as they do not carry the polluting effect of bigotry into their adulthood, such as the case with many of the poor brainwashed children in homophobic heterosexual socially conservative, so-called religious homes.

      ~ “Whereas, the court’s ruling sends the message that both the mother and father matter and that each play a necessary, critical and unique role in the development of children;”

      …Wrong again, New York’s highest court left it up to the state legislature to decide marriage. Just like the Hawaiian Supreme Court did in the mid 1990?s. There was no finding of heterosexual constitutional exclusivity to marriage in New York. Stop misstating the facts.

      ~ “Whereas, traditional marriage is settled law based on centuries of defining marriage as the contractual union between one man and one woman for the benefit and stability of raising families;”

      …Totally wrong. “Traditional” marriage was (and still is in many parts of the world) the marriage of one man and several women; women were also considered chattel (ie the property of men). Marriage was once also (especially in the USA) limited to members of the same race, and in other countries to people of the same religion and class in society.

      As far as heterosexual exclusivity goes, wrong again. Same-sex marriage contracts existed as long ago as in Classical Rome, as well as in other more modern cultures today. Also, same-sex marriages and civil unions currently exist in 12 states in America and will continue to increase in more states as time unfolds. Perhaps in all fifty sates with a Loving –v– Virgina type ruling from the US Supreme Court in the Federal DOMA cases which continue to percolate up to the highest court in the land. So, you are again wrong on the facts.

      ~ “Whereas, the New York State Conservative Party is a political organization that champions traditional Judeo-Christian values and the importance of providing children the unique attributes that a mother and a father bring to child rearing;”

      …Your so-called “Traditional Judeo-Christian values” (or lack thereof) are not every one’s “traditial Judeo-Christian values” who actually do honor the words of Jesus such as: “That which you do unto the least among you, you do unto me…”…and… “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.

      ~ “Whereas, when people cast a vote for a candidate on the New York State Conservative Party line, they expect that candidate to stand for the same values that the New York State Conservative Party champions;”

      … Every Klan needs followers.

      ~ “Therefore, be it resolved, that any elected official or potential candidate who does not support marriage as defined between one man and one woman, shall not have their name appear on Row C, the New York State Conservative Party position on election ballots, in any election.”

      …That would be a privilege indeed. What an honor not to have one’s name besmirched and included in your rogue’s gallery of unenlightened bigots.

      Thank God, history will look back on your cabal of social divisiveness, cobbled together for cynical political gain, with the same disdain that other hate-groups in the past were regarded. Future generations will celebrate throughout the United States of America the marriages of their Gay and Lesbian sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends and neighbors while your kind will be relegated to the dustbin of history.
      People of true faith, and in common decency, eagerly await that day.

      We make fun of other countries and call them “uncivilized” and yet they have NATIONAL laws that do not discriminate sex in marriage.
      I mean, in some south american countries the law does NOT say anything anymore about it, and so same sex marriage is as lawful as heterosexual marriage. SAME LAW. SAME RIGHTS.
      We should go and learn something from those far down south.
