Gay Marriage Debate Ends Up on State Senator's Doorstep

advertisement

Protesters hurled angry words at New York State Sen. Carl Kruger today for his decision to vote against gay marriage.

Gay rights activists called Kruger a "bigot" as they marched in front of his Mill Basin, Brooklyn home.  Organizers said turnout for the rally was dampened by rain and cold weather,  but more protests are planned in the coming weeks.

Kruger was one of 38 senators who voted against a bill to legalize same-sex marriage in New York.

Fredy Kaplan said he has been made to feel like a "second class citizen."

"We can't have a regular life," he said.

Organizers of the event say they intend to protest at the homes and offices of many of the senators who voted against the bill.  They have already taken their rally to Sen. Hiram Monserrate's office.
