Video: Yelling at people on their wedding days—one year later

by Jeremy Hooper

In order to mark the upcoming anniversary of marriage equality in New York state, anti-gay protestor Jim Deferio has posted a pair of videos from his protests outside of Syracuse City Hall on the day that marriages began, reminding us all of how nasty the opposition to this particular civil freedom can and does get:


Reminder: On this very same day (July 24, 2011), the National Organization For Marriage led a (largely bussed-in) contingent through the streets of Manhattan, with many on site carrying messages that were just as outrageous as these. Both were condemnatory and distasteful with a same goal in mind (i.e. overturning marriage equality). Both will ultimately help us win this increasingly hostile public debate.
