Arizona Group Targets New York Law

Sure, this could have gone into the QueerFeed column, be we wanted to make sure it caught your attention. It seems that an Arizona based organization, inappropriately named Alliance Defense Fund, has filed a law suit here in New York that calls for state organizations to ignore gay marriages confirmed elsewhere.

365 Gay Reports:

A conservative legal group has filed a lawsuit to block the state public employee retirement system from recognizing Massachusetts and Canadian marriages entered into by gay and lesbian current and retired New York State workers.

This begs the question: why does a conservative group based in Arizona care what happens to gay retirees in New York? This would be like us poking our nose into some sports blog and telling them they needed to be more gay. Are people really that bored with their own lives that they have to go crossing state line to ruin other people’s? Sheesh.
