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.

I only made one post (#172) on this thread and got a "my posts are bigoted" spam mail. The coward wouldn't even post it in the open and has since earned the ZOT.
Regarding my post, there's nothing bigoted about running politicians (who don't follow their constituents wishes) out on a rail. Perhaps they need to look up the meaning of the word, and most likely are just a bunch of LIEberal DUmbass trolls who have nothing to do with a church or the Republican Party.
Since they wanted to yank my chain, I'll share my opinon on the subject of their spam message:
"Being gay" is nothing more than a self-destructive psychological behavior that goes against the Bible and nature, and anyone who supports their "union" has no place in the church or the GOP.
If it affects entitlement to social security death benefits, then it is not merely a state issue. And if the other states are required to accept as legitimate the marriages performed in New York, then that has federal implications there as well.
I've been to both places, and if I had to recommend one over the other, I'd choose the Grand Canyon.
God has His way of talking to us, I believe 9/11 was indeed one of those talks. But New Yorkers' hearts have grown cold, and this Legislative Act was their way of telling God "Screw you" and God will not be amused, so as they say in the Navy when rough seas are imminent, " standby for heavy rolls."
That will never happen.
Screw them! They have zero room to talk if they still identify with a party that puts up an ineligible Marxist POS for the highest office in the land.
Married people get more benefits that single people? Why is that? Do they pay in more?
When the Titanic was sinking why was it women and children first on the lifeboats?
The answer to that question is the answer to your first question. Society has determined in the free marketplace of ideas and established by institution that it values marriage, family, children, and procreation and considers such worthy of promotion and privilege.
Homosexual sex is considered of no value by society. It may be tolerated in a free society; however, rewarding stupidity, delusion, self destruction, and death for the sake of being 'fair' is a leftist cause that destroys freedom and promotes the destruction of society.
"Do they pat in more?" is premised upon the leftist idea of 'fairness' where all things should be mandated by government equal in outcome. Homosexual adoption is as well all about being 'fair' to the idiots that choose not to procreate.
The one defecting Republican that gave Cuomo this gift is also RC
This was a political deal..the defecting Rep got SUNY2020 passed in the exchange ..he Thinks that will save his butt ...not so
Must be a lot of real estate in hell-—otherwise extremely hot and cramped un-living quarters for the masses. Probably have NYC sewer rats on steroids down there too.
I doubt that the real numbers are any where near what is reported by academic papers. Gay advocates have every reason to make the Gay population appear as large as possible. From the Kinsey Report's laughable 10% figure to more "reasonable" 3.5%, the question should be asked, Is the researcher a homosexual advancing that cause?
Nor the law (Western foundation of NL promoting the logical revelation of Male-female relations), equal rights (Homosexuals were never denied to marry that of the opposite gender), entitlements (A fairytale, made-up from rainbows that are emitted from the bowels of Unicorns) and the unintended consequences that pragmatic whores in public office ignore.
Flame-throwing NY Republican candidate Gov. Carl Paladino erupted again, declaring (10/10/2010) that being gay is “not the example that we should be showing our children.”
“I don’t want [children] brainwashed into thinking homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option - it isn’t,”
Unfortunately NYers elected the cHomo vermin instead.
If it affects entitlement to social security death benefits, then it is not merely a state issue. And if the other states are required to accept as legitimate the marriages performed in New York, then that has federal implications there as well.It's a state action but with national effects that are huge... as you point out.
It's a huge state. It's a huge change. It's a huge deal.
It will be seen, in years to come, as a huge part of the breakdown of our Republic.
This just in. Protestant President Barak Obama is destroying the country at twoce the rate of Protestant Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton combined. If not for the conservative Catholic members of the SCOTUS we would be completely screwed.
