Yessiree Bob, the private sector thinks of nothing all day except inventing new ways to oppress us, while our fierce advocates in the public sector valiantly protect us. Yet according to this, high-profile New York business leaders have prepared an open letter calling for marriage equality in that state, citing reasons from recruiting the best talent to simple fairness. Same-sex marriage failed in the State Senate two years ago.
The article notes, "Some of the business leaders are close to the Senate Republican caucus, which voted unanimously against the marriage bill two years ago." In other words, Republican politicians are now pitted against what is nominally one of their core constituencies. A while back, I noted some reasons here.
