“A New York state judge has thrown out the first direct legal challenge to the governor’s move to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. Judge Lucy Billings says in her ruling Tuesday that the policy is a “permissible” step toward equality for gays and lesbians… A Christian legal group in Arizona had sued in New York, saying the issue should be decided by that state’s Legislature. The organization and the office of Gov. David Paterson had no immediate response to the ruling.” [AP]

    I still don’t get how an organization from Arizona can sue the State of New York about what the law in New York says. Did they have any legal standing at all?

    The only thing that is worse than conservative Christan groups. Are out of state conservative Christan groups.

    I don’t get it. When courts make pro-gay rulings, they say it should have been the legislature. When the legislature does it, they say it should have been the voters. I can’t wait to hear what they say went wrong when voters in California uphold marriage equality.
