Suing to stop NY Governor's recent decision... June 04, 2008 7:41 AM

SUMMARY: Several GOP state senators and the Alliance Defense Fund fight Gov. David Paterson's order that New York honor gay marriages legally officiated elsewhere. ADVERTISEMENT A Christian legal organization says it has sued to stop New York from recognizing same-sex marriages legally performed in other states. The Alliance Defense Fund says it filed its lawsuit Tuesday in a court in the Bronx. Several Republican state senators are named as party to the suit. Same-sex marriage is unconstitutional in New York. Gov. David Paterson, however, told state agencies May 14 that New York must recognize same-sex marriages performed in Massachusetts, Canada and other places where they are legal. The Arizona-based legal group filing the lawsuit has intervened in California and elsewhere in same-sex marriage and religious freedom cases including those involving abortion and what it calls traditional family values.
