Groups protest new gay marriage law
Protesters marched in cities across the state yesterday in protest of New York's new gay marriage law, which went into effect Sunday.
The National Organization for Marriage organized the "Stand Up and Be Heard, Let the People Vote!" rallies in cities such as Manhattan, Albany, Buffalo and Rochester.
Protesters in Middleton want to organize a movement that will give the people of New York the right to vote on the issue of gay marriage instead of politicians.
A majority of both the state House and Senate would need to vote for a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage just to get the issue on a ballot referendum.
