Not unexpected, but certainly a worthwhile point to be made yet again, this time on Valentine's Day.
Michael Lavers at EDGE reports: "To highlight the lack of marriage equality in New York, Rob Lassegue and José Manuel Reyes unsuccessfully tried to apply for a marriage license at New York City's Marriage Bureau on Monday, Feb. 14. The Rev. Pat Bumgardner of the Metropolitan Community Church of New York married Lassegue and Reyes and a straight couple in a park across the street from the Marriage Bureau after the protest."
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP…
Similar protests are occurring today across the country: "From California to Texas to Illinois, activists are organizing trips to courthouses and county clerks' offices to request marriage licenses, despite laws in those states and 42 others that forbid gay couples to wed."
