Report: Several GOP NY Senators poised to test NOM's retributive threats

by Jeremy Hooper

NY-GOPEncouraging New York news, as reported by The NY Post:

Seven or more Senate Republicans have signaled Gov. Cuomo that they're ready to legalize same-sex marriage, more than enough to put the controversial and historic measure over the top this week, The Post has learned.

A highly knowledgeable Senate insider said yesterday that "far more of the [GOP] members are in play than anyone realizes, including some surprising names from conservative upstate areas."

So if true, will supporting basic equality backfire for those of a party that still stands in decided opposition to the same (as NOM and other groups threaten)? Well, we can't be sure, of course. However, we do know that this same crew of threateners has also warned of the essential destruction of society, which has yet to happen after years of legally married gay couples. So when it comes to livelihood ultimatums, we wouldn't be too concerned, if we were both equality-supporting and Republican.
