NY's equality foes gassing up the RV

by Jeremy Hooper

Our opposition simply loves a pro-discrimination bus tour:

New Yorker's Family Research Foundation is embarking on a statewide tour to remind the average New Yorker that marriage between one man and one woman matters."

The Mayday for Marriage tour departs Friday, May 6th, and after stopping in places like Buffalo, Rochester, Staten Island, Long Island, and many others, the tour will culminate in Albany's West Capitol Park on May 24th.

McGuire said, "NYFRF representatives will be on the road taking the debate over 'same-sex marriage' to legislative districts across the Empire State. We're packing our bags, loading an RV wrapped in marriage messaging and making stops at various media availabilities and marriage rallies in local communities throughout the state."

As you probably already know, "mayday" is a distress signal that one sends out when in some sort of danger. Lest you thought the "gays will destroy201105041617society" crowd had any plans to tone down their rhetoric and focus on the actual merits of civil equality.

But then again, considering what happened to the last marriage tour organizer/bus driver, perhaps we should be welcoming this new road trip. And besides: The danger that most commonly accompanies a distressed "mayday!" cry is a sinking ship. So who knows -- maybe they're more self-effacing/self-aware than even we realize?
