Matt Barber’s Anti-Gay Liberty Counsel Sues New York State Over Same Sex Marriage

Less than 48 hours after same sex marriage has become legal in New York State,  Matt Barber’s anti-gay Liberty Counsel from Jerry (“May he be rotting hell and plaing canasta with Ronald Reagan”) Fawell’s Liberty University have filed suit against the state oif New York in behalf of Rev. Jason McQuire, and the New Yorkers For Constitutional Freedoms filed suit to overturn same-sex marriage.

McGuire claims that the state Senate, in adopting the legislation, violated the state’s Open Meetings Law by closing off the Senate galleries and lobby; and by holding closed door meetings with Mayor Bloomberg and others who backed the law.The group also claims, among other things, that Gov. Cuomo and the Senate ignored the constitutionally mandated three-day waiting period before a bill can be acted upon and that lawmakers approved the legislation in exchange for campaign contributions from Bloomberg and other high profile “Wall Street financiers.”

Ehhhm.  Shouldn’t they be calling themselves “New Yorkers Against Constitutional Freedoms”?
