One attorney says New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (D) is
"living in la-la land" as he helps finance elections in four states
to gain voter approval for homosexual "marriage."
The billionaire philanthropist has also announced the formation
of a new project meant to influence nationwide elections that
align with his views. But Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty
Counsel Action, believes Bloomberg is out of touch with the
American people and with reality.
"Anyone who imagines that the government [or] that
anyone can radically redefine and thereby deconstruct the
institution of legitimate marriage is living in la-la land," the
"Despite the euphemistic civil rights language that the left
disingenuously applies," Barber says the reality is that marriage
is a covenant relationship between one man and one woman, and it is
the best environment for raising children.
He further adds that the mayor of the Big Apple "is comparing
apples to oranges when he pretends there can be such a thing as
"You know, you can take an apple, spray paint it orange and call
it an orange, but it's still an apple. And so-called progressives,
to include Mayor Bloomberg, are simply on the wrong side of
progress and on the wrong side of history when it comes to
protecting the institution of marriage," the Liberty Counsel Action
vice president asserts.
He concludes that investing money to encourage others to promote
homosexual marriage "is promoting an evil."
