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.

thanks for sharing the link...good to know everyone in New York has not embraced the darkness.
There’s a certain line we should not cross, and at the same time give idiots a forum.
GOD damn gays and their sodomy, rest assured they will burn in hell for this even if they dont burn in america just yet.
jesus is not pleased with new york, more evil in a time of obama evil, sickening. just sickening.
Liberals believe that everyone has a right to his own opinion and then are shocked and outraged to find there is another opinion. W.F. Buckley
I leave that to the mods. If you need a lesson on FR after a screed like that, you don’t belong on FR and neither do the posts being peed on.
gotta love Buckley
I don't believe any provisions in this legislation will survive a court challenge. The people who fell for it are just naive.
I would think that this would require an amendment of the state Constitution.
It is already in the pipeline ...
A New York Initiative and Referendum Amendment may appear on the November 5, 2013 state ballot in New York as an legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The proposed amendment would allow for voters to enact and amend laws through initiative and referendum.
If it passes, they could then petition for repeal of gay marriage to be put on the next state ballot. 5% of the previous gubernatorial electorate is needed ...
If the repeal is passed in the election - then the current gay marriage law is null and void ...
This just happened recently in Maine ... pro-gay marriage legislation was passed and signed into law. 6 months later it was rejected by referendum in the next election.
“gotta love Buckley”
I miss him!
Hank, thank you for identifying the Republican in your midst (Congressman Joe Walsh). Nice to know that there might be a conservative pulse in the ‘almost ready to go bankrupt’ state of Illinois. How is this possible? How the hell did a guy like him get elected in the land of Rham and Obama? Is the state of Illinois redeemable or are you all merely subjects of the Chicago mob? Excuse me if I don’t ‘kiss the ring’.
The time has long passed for goooberment to get that "high-speed rail" they've been pushing for!
“The people who fell for it are just naive.”
For sure, or else they are one of them (the gay AGENDA people).
Maybe it’s legal, but Cuomo did legislate from the Executive Office. He initiated the gay bill, probably because he feared a vote by NY citizens.

“Cuomo’s for Homos”....has a sickening ring to it! He’s a friggin’ disgrace as are all NY pols except Peter King. Lemme out of this NY cesspool! I’m leaving here ASAP! But for now, I’m stuck with a ball-and-chain house. :(
Yeah...up next: NAMBLA...just watch.
Think of the wedding and event planners, also. Quite an economic stimulus. I’m sure it will be fabulous.
I knew they would do it after saying the vote was on Wednesday. They purposely tired out the working people that take off work to lobby govt, and when they all went away after the “signal” was sent that the Senate may not vote on it at all....VOILA....like magic. buncha DH’s.
I will never spend another dime in NY state. NYC is fun to visit but I’m done. I refuse to support sodomites. NY will be judged no doubt. This is a perversion.
