NY Legislature legalizes gay marriage

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.

Actually, homosexuality and child sexual abuse are rampant among those who follow Mohammed.

But why would one expect you to know such things. Liberals are always ignorant.

Good discussion in the comments after the article. The author doesn’t back down either.

Concrete, filth, crime and now this. More than enough reason to never again visit the Empire state.

I am having a “discussion” with some homosexuals on Facebook. They are too happy. I posted a study about homosexuality and depression/suicide. That seemed to upset them. I no longer care if I am called names. I will not bow down to this PC crap. Homosexuality is morally and spiritually wrong and trying to teach children it is normal is child abuse!

So the new Weimar Republic on the Hudson has something to celebrate.

It won't last long though, the coming backlash against the perverted marxist degenerate scum democrat party and their supporters in the populace and the press isn't going to be pretty.

The nation cannot endure half evil marxist and half good capitalist.

Somehow I don't see these homosexuals, communists and welfare cases taking up arms to prevent the free states from leaving.

We are sent into the world to be a light.

Not according to one of the Senators speaking in their Senate tonight, who said as he voted for this passage... "Light has come into this chamber tonight".

I think there's several scriptures which speaks about 'depraved men' calling darkness light as this senator did. He would do well to read it....the end result for doing so is not pretty.

I pray that you're right. Darkest just before the dawn, right?

But I seriously see this as a prophetic plunge into indescribably depravity. We are done with any innocence we once possessed. It has to come, but the trip through the fire will be excruciating.

I bet Jesus’ tolerance would would be strained to the max dealing with you

What in the WORLD are you smoking tonight?

Jesus and his apostles call for purity in sexual relationship.

Since you don't read the Bible, I'll remind you of the time Jesus said "And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away. And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder."

MALE AND FEMALE. You have no right to preach until you GET YOUR STUFF RIGHT.

Isaiah 5

20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!
22 Woe to men mighty at drinking wine,
Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink,
23 Who justify the wicked for a bribe,
And take away justice from the righteous man!
24 Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble,
And the flame consumes the chaff,
So their root will be as rottenness,
And their blossom will ascend like dust;
Because they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts,
And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25 Therefore the anger of the LORD is aroused against His people;
He has stretched out His hand against them
And stricken them,
And the hills trembled.
Their carcasses were as refuse in the midst of the streets.

GOP Senator Stephen Saland of Poughkeepsie:
“While I understand that my vote will disappoint many, I also know my vote is a vote of conscience,” Saland said in a statement to The Associated Press before the vote. “I am doing the right thing in voting to support marriage equality.”
Gay couples in gallery wept during Saland’s speech.
GOP Senator Mark Grisanti, a GOP freshman from Buffalo, also said he would vote for the bill.

That’s a pretty detestable assumption to make.

So you are saying the New Yorkers who died on 911, died because other New Yorkers support gay marriage?

That's Fred Phelps logic.

Only a statist scumbag would equate depraved criminal behavior to resisting forced acceptance of homosexual behavior.

This “law” has nothing to do with “legalizing” homosexual marriage. It’s about forcing State residents and those doing business in NY to fully support homosexual behavior.

Well, frankly, I hope every Senator who voted for this depravity goes home, eats a good meal, gets a good night’s sleep, and then wakes up with a debilitating stroke that makes the rest of their lives a long, miserable, unending hell. That’s exactly what these pieces of human garbage deserve.

It’s obvious the Repukes only care about power and the status quo, the party is officially dead to me.

I would urge all NY freepers and any other patriotic, God-fearing conservatives stuck in NY to leave the dump asap.

Like I said, I don’t want to make this a religious debate. However, I’d encourage everyone to look into postmillenialism (the Evangelical variety, not the bogus liberal variety). There are many different proposed interpretations of Bible prophecy, and I have found preterist postmillenialism to be the most consistent.
