Vietnam Veteran to Gov. Cuomo: Don't Question My Patriotism Because I Support Marriage

 

Via New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms:

Hundreds of you told Governor Andrew Cuomo, "It's not anti-American to be pro-family." You weren't the only ones, though. Asm. Daniel Burling (R-Warsaw) also sent a letter to Gov. Cuomo. In the letter, Burling tells Cuomo:

"...I am deeply concerned that you would characterize those who are opposed to same-sex marriage as 'anti-New York or anti-American.' ...It is one thing to object to someone's position on a given matter, but it is quite another to question someone's patriotism. As a US Marine Corps Vietnam Combat Veteran, I take serious umbrage to such an allegation."
