Why can't people just leave us alone? New York, a popular destination for a lot of homosexuals, finally got marriage legalized. It’s one of 6 states that now allow gays and lesbians to get married. But of course you will have some jerk out there doing his best to have the decision reverse.
NY Senator Ruben Diaz a.k.a Asshole is threatening to commence a law suit base on the fact that when you register to be married, you need to wait 24 hours before you can get married.
Speaking at the "Let the People Vote" rally Sunday, Diaz said he will file a lawsuit in the New York court system next week to challenge the judicial waiver that allowed same-sex couples to marry on the same day of the marriage license application.
The Bronx senator, who was the only Democrat to vote against the gay marriage bill, argued that the hundreds of gay marriages that took place on Sunday were illegal because the same-sex couples did not wait the mandated 24 hours before marrying.
"When a couple registers for a marriage license they are supposed wait 24 hours before actually getting married," Diaz told The Christian Post. "This is illegal and criminal."
New York's gay marriage law took effect Sunday, 30 days after it was passed by the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
To celebrate the first day that gay marriages were allowed in New York, city officials had provided a special judicial waiver to same-sex couples so they would be able to marry without waiting 24 hours after filing for a marriage license.
Diaz said the waiver was not legal because there are no emergencies that constitute such a waiver. He explained there are only three reasons a waiver should go forth, according to domestic law.
"The three reasons are if the state has an emergency, if one partner is facing immediate death or if there is a severe financial emergency that the couple is facing," Diaz explained to the crowd of over 5,000 at the gay marriage protest Sunday.
