Rainbow Groups Pressured New York into Illegal Action?

The group New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedom filed a lawsuit Monday challenging the state’s gay marriage law that took effect at midnight Sunday.

According to Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver, the New York Senate is guilty of:

Clear and rampant violations of the constitutional requirement to have open and transparent meetings.

Staver and his group believe that the bill was ‘strong-armed’ by various homosexual rainbow groups and lobbyists through the legislative process.  Reportedly, when the state senate was discussing the bill to legalize gay marriage, the doors were physically locked.  The public was not allowed in nor were senators allowed to leave until after the bill had been passed.

Additionally, New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg reportedly met with some of the Republican senators behind closed doors in an effort to pressure them to vote for the bill, and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, also met privately with senators at a meeting at the governor’s mansion to place even more pressure on them to vote in favor the bill.

Staver went on to say:

When government operates in secret and freezes out the very people it is supposed to represent, the entire system fails.  The backroom tactics were rampant in the passages of this law.

Chances are the rainbow groups knew that the only way to get their own private bill passed was to by pass the legal system requiring open door meetings for all legislative actions.

Now we’ll see just how much influence the rainbow groups have over the New York judges who will decide the matter.
