New York To Recognize Same Sex Marriages

First the California Supreme Court overturns the ban on gay marriage which could allow gay couples to marry as soon as next month and now New York moves to recognize same sex marriages performed elsewhere.
Gov. David A. Paterson has directed all state agencies to begin to revise their policies and regulations to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions, like Massachusetts, California and Canada.

In a directive issued on May 14, the governor’s legal counsel, David Nocenti, instructed the agencies that gay couples married elsewhere “should be afforded the same recognition as any other legally performed union.”

The heads of those on the Religious Right must be exploding everywhere...
