NYCF Marks Five Years of Gay "Marriage"

June 24, 2016 marks the five-year anniversary of the passage of same-sex “marriage” legislation in the State of New York. Rev. Jason J. McGuire, Executive Director of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, made the following remarks:

“Today, our organization remains just as committed to the moral and authentic definition of marriage as we always have. It is still the union of a man and a woman. Marriage, by its very nature, recognizes the beautiful and complementary contributions that both a mother and a father make to their children’s lives. We look forward to the day when our culture will once again honor and cherish marriage.”

“Before Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s same-sex ‘marriage’ law was passed, Christians predicted that such a law would be used to punish persons and organizations whose sincerely-held religious beliefs require them not to participate in same-sex ceremonies. Unfortunately, the outrageous treatment of Robert and Cynthia Gifford, who were subjected to years of litigation, penalties, and damages for politely declining to hold a same-sex ‘wedding’ at Liberty Ridge Farm in Schaghticoke, New York, has proven us correct. While the rhetoric of freedom and equality was used to promote same-sex ‘marriage,’ the reality is that New Yorkers are less free now that same-sex ‘marriage’ is legal.”
