Jewish Voice Endorses Catholic Bob Turner in NY-9

 

And the editors frame their support of Turner as a protest vote over Weprin's positions, including his choice to vote for same-sex marriage as in the NY Assembly:

Hot-button issues such as the recently passed Marriage Equality Act in the New York State legislature do not escape voters either. Having voted for the law allowing same-sex couples to marry, Assemblyman Weprin, ostensibly an Orthodox Jew, said ”this is not a religious issue” and, taking the separation of church and state line, likened opposition to the bill to those who would seek to outlaw marriages between interracial couples or Jews and non-Jews. Never acknowledging the fact that moral depravity will have egregious effects on the society as a while, Weprin relegates his purported allegiance to his religious beliefs on the altar of political correctness and dances to the zeitgeist of “tolerance and diversity.” Turner, on the other hand, supports the Clinton-initiated Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defines marriage as a union of a man and a woman.
