Video: The footage NY's chief anti-equality group didn't want you to see

by Jeremy Hooper

We've been slow to get you video from the May 24 "MayDay for Marriage" rally in Albany, NY. That's because, in a characteristic turn, the group behind the rally, the New Yorker's Family Research FOundation, only released footage that is edited within an inch of its life. And only one piece of it, with only twelve seconds of spoken audio.

Fortunately, YouTuber "thedwork" was on site, video cam in hand, to show the world the sights (a rally sign calling homosexuality a "crime against nature") and sounds (speaker saying Gov. Cuomo is "living in immorality and trying to legalize other immorality"; speaker calling gay people "broken" because of "abuse and misuse"; speaker saying same-sex marriage is on of "the Devil's evil scheme"; speaker saying gays need to "Come out of homosexuality, just like with "alcoholics and druggies") that the opposition doesn't want you to see:

Break

*EARLIER:

- Some truly outrageous rhetoric from one of the groups on site, the so-called Jews For Decency.

- One rally participant's call to "Excommunicate Cuomo," simply because NY's Democratic governor supports his gay constituents.

- The New Yorker's Family Research Foundation's heads, Duane Motley and Jason McGuire, have painted this whole civil rights conversation as a war, presented churches as if they are recruiting stations and the Bible itself as a weapon meant to clobber certain kinds of humans, likened marriage equality to child abuse, blamed this whole fight on Satan, and claimed that they're in this fight to save people like Sen. Tom Duane and Assemblyman Danny O'Donnell (both gay) from "an eternity in Hell".

- The New Yorker's Family Research Foundation also promoted their rally and overall marriage efforts with church bulletin inserts that called homosexuality "perverted & twisted" and said that it will lead to the "destruction of your immortal soul."
