Just as source predicted, NY Governor David A. Paterson announced today he would introduce a bill to legalize same-sex marriage in his state.
He compared the status of gay men and lesbians to that of African-Americans, Jews, women and other groups who were historically excluded from full political and social equality, Gov. Paterson said he would lead a movement to authorize same-sex marriage. “We have a crisis of leadership today,” he declared. “We’re going to fill that vacuum today.”
