Seriously, who here thinks a Judge wouldn’t over-turn the Religious Exemptions and said it’s discrimination?

Romans 1:28

Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.

Romans 1:24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.

2 Thessalonians 2:11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie

Some good news!

BREAKING: Sen. Lanza Says He Will Vote NO!
June 24, 2011 at 7:47 pm

This is especially encouraging considering Senator Lanza was apparently the widely-rumored "32nd vote" for SSM:

Spokeswoman says Andrew Lanza of Staten Island, seen as a pivotal vote on #gaymarriage, will vote no. -- Thomas Kaplan of the NYTimes

This isn't over, as you can see -- so keep hitting the phones!

Senators Stephen Saland (saland@nysenate.gov) and Mark Grisanti (grisanti@nysenate.gov) particularly need to hear from us by email!

Here's how this will play out: A) the Republicans will cave B) Long will make good on his threat to withhold the Conservative line C) the New York State Senate will buck the tidal wave next year and revert back to Democrat hands D) the GOP in New York State Senate Republicans will be a permanent minority just as they are in the Assembly.
BUT BUT BUT the Senate Republicans will serve one last purpose and they will do some moderate damage in redistricting. This will mean we will have wrung out every last bit of benefit from last November's GOP victories. Good bye New York, you are already the least free state in the country and you are sinking fast.

According to the Babylonian Talmud, homosexual "marriage" was going on in Noah's time right before God destroyed the earth.

"“But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. .....". This earth is being catapulted into the Tribulation. We can't get there fast enough.

Are you listening to this idiot scattered brain Sen. Duane speaking now? Just goes to show how this behavior affects their minds and how incredably self-centered they are. Just hearing him talk about such personal details....awful!

I can't listen to any of these people - they are all sickening.

Just like I mute the TV whenever Barack Obama is on. It's simply too nauseating.

Sen. Giusanti says as a lawyer he cannot legally come up with an arguement against same-sex marriage...though he claims catholic several times thru his speaking.

He says civil unions alone don’t work.

He constantly says he’s been struggling with this issue....so we once again hear evidence that those who are in position of making decisions for good and against evil do know that this is a spiritual struggle....and they will yield to the winning side within them.

He voted affirmative.

Cuomo hasn't even got the guts to marry his beard and put on a show for the world, but everybody knows which way he really swings anymore.

Darned shame. He had a future. Now he's got nothing.

I’d like to see the proof that civil unions don’t work. And Bill Donohue from the Catholic League said what are you going to do when 3 people want the right to marry? if you’re going to pass this law that same sex marriage is legal then what right do you have to tell 3 people they can’t marry if they love it each other?

What this means is that somebody has good dirt on this scumbag Grisanti. probably a duaghter, wife, or family member with multiple abortions. Something like that. Or, maybe Grisanti is, himself, a foot tapper.

Hi Mojo.....I have to admit listening to these people explain their vote is not easy to hear....so very evident the “reasoning” they are using is independent of the very faith they all are claiming. Amazing hypocrisy!

I'm going to send him an e-mail so that he can sponsor bills supporting Polygamy, inter-species marriage, and my husband claims I'm in love with my iPhone so I guess that would be inter-tech unions.

Sen Giusanti (and everyone else who votes yes) will be held accountable for legislating that children be denied either a mother or a father in a homosexual marriage.
