Robert Burck has been singing and strumming his guitar dressed in nothing but underwear and cowboy boots almost every day since By Jenny Powers. Throngs of selfie stick-toting tourists weave in and out of the paths of costumed cartoon characters looking to pose for photos in exchange for tips. Meanwhile, taxi drivers and double-decker tour bus operators lean on their horns in unison, cursing the bumper-to-bumper traffic. The backdrop of flashing neon lights and larger-than-life billboards looms above it all. In the center of this sensory overload stands one man in tighty-whities, with Jesus Christ tattooed on his left bicep and the devil featured on his right.

The Naked Cowboy, famous for performing with his guitar in New York's Times Square, is refusing to leave despite the coronavirus outbreak. Although now adding a face mask to his outfit of hat, boots and white pants, Robert Burck, 49, insists it will take more than a global pandemic to stop him from entertaining crowds, even if they are smaller in lockdown. Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, he said: "I haven't missed one day in 20 years, six months and 28 days - unless I was travelling to be the Naked Cowboy in another city where the opportunity was bigger. On Thursday, New York's governor, Andrew Cuomo, claimed they had now "controlled the beast", after reporting a drop in the daily number of deaths state-wide, and the overall count of people in hospital.

Under this system, one is certainly warranted in believing that society has an important and vital interest in preserving, promoting and defending marriage and families as composed exclusively by heterosexuals. At the same time, given the fact that the state itself would be endangered if families based on heterosexual relations were threatened, the state is warranted in refusing to grant legal recognition to same-sex marriage. The burden of establishing that homosexual unions are similarly vulnerable and in need of recognition, as well as being necessary and beneficial to the common good, as heterosexual marriage, is necessarily on those who wish to overturn these warranted claims. I do not believe it will be possible to establish, based on the evidence detailed above, that such claims are in fact warranted. If the state, nonetheless, adopts such proposals in order to further the political or social agendas of those who cannot establish such warrant, the state would be acting illegitimately, and in opposition to reason.
