New York Senate Speech on Marriage Equality

December 4, 2009

A smart and impassioned speech worth watching. Senator Savino describes what we, as the culture of “The Bachelor,” have done to marriage and why she supports marriage equality.

We in government don’t determine the quality or validity of people’s relationships.  If we did, we wouldn’t issue three quarters of the marriage licenses we do…

…I’m a Roman Catholic. The Catholic Church has the right to deny me the sacrament of marriage if they determine the person I choose to marry is unfit or our relationship doesn’t meet their standards.  City hall does not have that right.  That will not change under this bill.  That will never change.  Religious institutions cacn continue to practice discrimination with respect to the sacrament of marriage.
