"Marriage equality is a civil rights issue"

Asked about his vote [to approve gay marriage as a New York Assemblyman], [candidate for Congress David Weprin] said simply, “it’s a civil rights issue, not a religious issue,” adding that “as a legislator,” he votes on behalf of “all the people.”

Let's go to the tape:

Weprin is excactly right: it's not a religious issue, in spite of what Bradlee Dean, Tom Pritchard, Archbishop John Nienstedt, Katherine Kersten, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Bob Vander Plaats, and all of the other poisonous pseudo-Christian windbags say.
