But, I think, the winner who should be become our favoritest new gay den mother is Assemblymember Teresa Sayward (R-Willsboro), who spoke on behalf of her gay son:
The word marriage symbolizes love, commitment and family and why should my son and other sons and daughters around the state of New York [not] have the same opportunity to experience that same commitment, love and family that other heterosexual couples do. It’s time for us to not only reach in our hearts, but to do what we as elected officials in America have done all along and say we will not accept anything but equal rights.*sniff sniff* This is me dabbing my eyes with a tissue.
Ms. Sayward, is your son single? I think, inadvertantly, he became the country's most eligible bachelor if only to have you as a mother-in-law.
Now, onto the Senate.
PS --> ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero, the first openly gay man to run the organization, has said that same-sex marriage is "sure thing" and is one of the top priorities for them.
