Clergy Arrested for Performing Same Sex Marriages
Paul Mooney, a comedian and former writer for Richard Pryor said recently that he could tell the government wasn't really serious about opposing gay marriage because they weren't arresting people for engaging in it like they did interracial couples in the 60's. Well, if that's the criteria, I guess we had better sit up and listen - the government is taking gay marriage seriously. The District Attorney for Kingston, New York is now arresting people for performing same-sex marriage ceremonies, according to today's Chicago Sun Times.
Bravo District Attorney Donald Williams! Not only are your streets safer today, but now that those who believe that homosexuals should have the same rights as heterosexuals are under threat of jail time for their beliefs, the institution of heterosexual marriage in Kingston, NY is finally safe.
