ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gay marriage will become legal in New York state after the Republican-led state Senate voted to approve it. Advocates are calling it a historic step as New York stands to become the sixth but by far the largest state to legalize same-sex marriage.
Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo lobbied hard for the bill and has promised to sign it.
The Senate vote is viewed as a major gain in an effort to allow gay marriage nationally.

The idiots didn’t legalize homosexual marriage, they’re laying the groundwork to persecute those that don’t support it!
Welcome to HELL,New York!
They just spit on Christ
They don’t call it “Screw York” for nothin’
That’s my point. If they want to find a pro-gay minister who wants to marry a gay couple in a state that’s passed this garbage then SO BE IT.
BUT..don’t FORCE those Clergy who DON’T believe in it to conduct it.
Welcome to the GAY APPLE, folks. Everything Guliani did to clean up the city is now going to be undone over time.
Yes, Democrats, screwing the American people, one vote at a time. And we thought that Anthony Weiner was crazy!
The Log Cabin Republicans strike again.
Supposedly the delay in passing the bill was due to last minute negotiations to have strong legal protections for religious organizations not to have to deal with same-sex marriage.
There have been very real fears that religious organizations will be sued with the legalization of homosexual marriage. Reason being, the liberal view being that discrimination against homosexuals is just like racial discrimination, and liberal judges agreeing. Even though homosexuality is not a protected class in federal civil rigts laws, liberal judges have begun to pretend that it is.
#NYGOP, you suck!
Mega-BINGO, there!!! Fake same-sex "marriage" has never been about the way the two people involved see themselves, it's about how EVERYONE ELSE will be coerced to look at them.
And the MSM is already saying how historic and symbolic this is. They are saying how it all started in New York at Stonewall, and now New York has come full circle by legalizing homosexual marriage.
Look for many puff pieces in the MSM in the days ahead in celebration of this.
Well at last! Andrew Cuomo can marry his father, Mario!
Those so-called protections will go bye-bye at the drop of a liberal judge’s hat with the first lawsuit.
Justices of the peace won’t have a conscientious objection capability — this is not usually a problem among actual religions, in which, say, a Mormon priest won’t marry non-Mormons, or an Islamic imam won’t marry non-Muslims, and there is no legal complaint.
I'm officially an independent now. Screw them all!
Not to worry, Jesus is taking notes, so to speak.
