“Poll: Taxes, ethics trump gay marriage, rent in Albany”

    NYPOST.com: The Siena College survey released this morning shows 37 percent rank passage of Cuomo’s agreed-upon two percent cap on local property tax hikes as lawmakers’ top concern, compared to 14 percent each for same-sex marriage and a renewal of current rent regulations. Some 22 percent believe approval of the ethics overhaul announced earlier this month by Cuomo and legislative leaders should be their chief issue.

Top Cuomo aide: ‘The votes are there’ to redefine marriage – vote expected before end of the week

Brian Raum: “Cuomo, Bloomberg: Social re-engineering is our highest priority”

    ADF attorney Brian Raum at The Daily Caller: New York is faced with a monumental decision, the full consequences of which we cannot begin to predict. One thing is sure, however: if the politicians succeed with their “highest priority,” it will guarantee, by design, that more children will be raised without either a mother or a father. That may be a side of history that Gov. Cuomo and Mayor Bloomberg want to be on, but I and most other Americans do not.

“What’s Really Behind’s Bloomberg’s Gay Marriage Pitch?”

    WNYC.org: The debate about how much economic benefit legalizing same-sex marriages in New York will have might be in doubt, but Bloomberg’s libertarian message will do more than add dollars and cents to the argument. By providing intellectual cover for those Republican senators he’s been targeting, Bloomberg’s conservative argument for gay marriage might keep the fence-sitters from feeling like they’ll have to fall on their swords.

Archbishop Timothy Dolan on Marriage: the Core of Every Civilization

    Catholic.org (includes video): We are not anti anybody; we are pro-marriage. The definition of marriage is a given: it is a lifelong union of love and fidelity leading, please God, to children, between one man and one woman. History, Natural Law, the Bible (if you’re so inclined), the religions of the world, human experience, and just plain gumption tell us this is so. The definition of marriage is hardwired into our human reason.

    NY Times: With only weeks to go before the end of the legislative session in June, a senior Democratic lawmaker in the New York State Assembly introduced legislation on Tuesday to legalize same-sex marriages, signaling that Assembly lawmakers were unwilling to wait for efforts by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and gay rights groups to pull together enough votes to move the measure through the Republican-controlled State Senate.

    Charisma Online: Alliance Defense Fund attorneys filed a lawsuit Monday on behalf of a student-led Christian club against the Hicksville Union Free School District for denying recognition to the group because of supposed “budgetary concerns.” . . . “Public schools cannot ban Christian student clubs simply because they are religious,” says ADF Senior Counsel David Cortman. “If officials at government-run schools did their homework, they’d know that students have a constitutionally protected right to express their beliefs. It’s ridiculous that Hicksville High School says it has no budget for a Christian club but somehow has enough for a ping pong club.” . . .
