Marrying a stranger: family values in action!

Of course, it's fine to marry a total stranger for no reason at all. As long as you are of opposite sexes.

From Buffalo, NY:
Entering the City Clerk’s office, Kitty and long-time partner Cheryl attempted to apply for a marriage license. Armed with the appropriate documents City employees informed them due to New York State law, they would be unable to grant them a license. As the clerk’s office employees gathered to watch, a tearful Lambert explained the benefits only available to straight couples with a marriage license.

With news cameras rolling, Kitty then turned to the crowd and asked for any male who would be willing to get married to her. A gay man named Ed stepped forward and volunteered. They briefly exchanged information and presented the appropriate documents along with $40. City staff verified the information, and proceeded to give them a marriage license.

This would be farce, if it weren't so tragic...

Liberating Lord Christ, bring us JUSTICE!
