Ithaca 50

by Jeremy Hooper
(1010 WINS) (ELMIRA, N.Y.) Attorneys for 25 same-sex couples seeking the right to marry said Friday the state's opposition to gay marriage is akin to the mentality that once allowed slavery and discrimination against women and minorities.

"The basis of the (the state's) opposition is that it goes against tradition. If tradition carried on, we would still have slavery," said Mariette Geldenhuys, one of the attorneys for the same-sex couples that have been dubbed the "Ithaca 50."


Clear. Concise. Logical...This really feels like it's gonna happen.
