Extra! 2 States Rule Against Gay Marriage

N.Y. top court rules against same-sex marriage: Any change would have to come from state Legislature/Associated Press; and: Georgia top court reinstates same-sex marriage ban: Unanimous decision reverses judge’s ruling/Associated Press

Bryan Fischer, Executive Director of the Idaho Values Alliance: “These rulings ought to encourage the pro-family community in Idaho. It looks like judges are finally getting the picture that the people and their elected representatives ought to have the freedom to establish marriage policy in their own states without judicial interference. And it ought to encourage all Idahoans to go to the polls in November and enshrine protection for natural marriage in our own state constitution. The fact that the New York decision was not unanimous is a reminder that there are still judges out there who want to legislate marriage policy from the bench. That’s why we need to pass the marriage amendment in November – to put the definition of marriage beyond the reach of activist judges.”

Question: Do you agree with the Idaho Family Values position or the two dissenting New York judges?
