Opponents of New York’s Gay-Marriage Law Think Temper Tantrums Will Help Their Cause

Sore losers in New York State are doing more than just stomping their feet. A representative of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms and a rabbi filed a lawsuit only one day after marriages began in New York. The suit makes three pretty bogus accusations:

Firstly it states that the New York State Senate violated its own procedures and the state’s open-meetings law. Secondly it states that the Senate prevented lawmakers who opposed the bill from speaking. Finally it states that the Senate didn’t follow procedures that require a bill to go through appropriate committees before a full Senate vote.

According to KSRO Newstalk Radio, spokesmen for Senate Republicans and the state’s Attorney General’s office declined to comment.

More feet stomping came from the only Democrat who voted against gay marriage, Sen. Ruben Diaz, who also says that judges broke the law by waiving the 24-hour waiting period without a good reason. Apparently, he doesn’t think that marrying the person you love is a very good reason. “We’re going to show them next week that everything they did today was illegal,” he said, speaking in Spanish. “Today we start the battle! Today we start the war!” So dramatic, that one.

And let’s not forget the reported “thousands upon thousands” of anti-gay-marriage protesters who actually did stomp their feet as they marched to the United Nations in Manhattan. The Associated Press reports that “around 3:30, the protesters started marching uptown toward the United Nations. By the time they reached the UN, the crowd numbered in the many thousands, filling up 47th Street.”

What a pack of sore losers. In the immortal words of the great Charlie Sheen, “Boom, crush. Night, losers. Winning, duh.”
