Same-sex marriage decision is ‘judicial imperialism’, says Catholic League

.- New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced that he would appeal the New York State Supreme Court’s decision to allow same-sex marriages. Justice Doris Ling-Cohan ruled Friday that the State Constitution does not forbid same-sex marriage.  She has further ruled that marriage licenses must be given to same-sex partners who apply for them.

Catholic League president William Donohue predicted that the judge’s decision “will help enormously in the effort to secure a [federal] constitutional amendment limiting marriage to one man and one woman. 

“The public is overwhelmingly against the bizarre idea of two men marrying: initiatives to legalize gay marriage lost in all 11 states that had this measure on the ballot in November,” he stated in a press release. 

Donohue said the judge’s decision will help reluctant people of the necessity of a constitutional amendment.

Describing her act as “judicial imperliasm” and a “reading into the law,” Donohue pointed out that no state judge had ruled that same-sex marriage was allowed in the Constitution.
