Score 1 for the Sanctity of Marriage!!
So here's a little something interesting...
In Buffalo, NY, Kitty Lambert and her longtime partner, Cheryl, attempted to apply for a marriage license yesterday. She was denied, because New York doesn't recognize same-sex marriage.
With news cameras rolling, Kitty then turned to the crowd and asked for any male who would be willing to get married to her. A gay man named Ed stepped forward and volunteered. They briefly exchanged information and presented the appropriate documents along with $40. City staff verified the information, and proceeded to give them a marriage license.
For those of you following along, Kitty was able to obtain a marriage license with a total stranger because he was male. This is that "sanctity of traditional marriage" everyone's fighting to uphold, isn't it?
Thanks to Towleroad for this little story...
