We recently launched a new resource to help combat some of the common myths that anti-marriage equality forces use to argue against marriage for same-sex couples. Same-Sex Marriage Myths Busted presents misconceptions about marriage along with the facts, documents and links that prove them wrong. Some of the topics covered include the current status of same-sex marriages in New York State; the difference between civil unions, domestic partnerships, and marriage; the claim that same-sex marriage threatens religious freedom; marriage as a changing institution through history; and same-sex marriage’s financial impact.
We hope this resource will be useful not just as a tool against the opposition’s false arguments, but also for supporters who want to learn more about the fight for marriage equality here in New York State.
