New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is leading the campaign to legalize gay marriage in the Empire State.
Many gay activists believe this year may be the year to try it. Cuomo has been successful in uniting the state's various gay rights groups and has publicly said the issue of gay marriage is a priority.
Gay rights groups say a win in New York would provide national momentum. Marriage between homosexuals is legal in five states and the District of Columbia.
However, voters in more than 30 states have approved measures defining marriage as between one man and one woman.
Rev. Jason McGuire is the executive director of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, one of the groups who opposes same-sex marriage in New York. He discussed the Empire State's current political landscape and public opinion on gay marriage on the CBN News Channel's Morning News, April 27.
