Audio: Sen. Golden flat out admits it: He wants to 'go after' certain NYers' marriages

by Jeremy Hooper

Yesterday we showed you Sen. Marty Golden (R-Brooklyn) giving an incredibly instigating, 100% faith-based speech designed to fire up the "protect marriage" crowd that had gathered in Albany. But before that, we told you about Sen. Golden's proposed bill specifically designed to target those New York couples who are fortunate enough to have their out-of-state marriages honored at home. Couples like this writer and his husband.

Well now, we have yet another taste of Golden's attempt to cook the gay goose. This time, where the senator full-on admits his aggressive desire to "[go] after those that may have been married in...other locations":


FULL INTERVIEW:

[Currents - Net NY]

Oh please. The out-of-state recognition has already passed court tests. The Alliance Defense Fund lawyers already cast their gay-depriving gaze to these marriages. They lost. Love won. To roll back these unions now would be to incite an all-out rebellion from New York's rich and vibrant gay population. And not gonna lie: I would be on the front lines of that one! You can mess with lots of things -- don't mess with my marriage.

But the most revelatory point here, for my money: The stated desire to "go after" anyone's loving bond. It's a mindset that I will never, ever understand. Thankfully.
