Posted on 06/24/2011 8:06:12 PM PDT by PROCON
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.

Fixed it for you.
needs to be posted again. Spot on P-Marlowe..and we see this nation become weaker and weaker for it's politicians supporting this perversion....and all the other crap they're bringing down the pike.
Exactly ....and important to remember IMO. I hear the arguments using divorce as a comparison when determining the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman...and homosexual rights... But it is not a good comparison because the better comparison would be to 'race' which is also a sacred gift from God. Sexuality between a married man and woman..(and the two shall become one) is as sacred as race. You cannot violate it. Sex between a married man and woman is a sacred gift of God. Violating the sanctity of marriage "Right" by homosexual behavior and demands is no different than violating anothers race.
that is the stupidest thing I ever read.
Perhaps you have no interest in the truth and/or are thoroughly ignorant of Scripture.
Evidently you are unaware of or disbelieve that Soddom and Gomorrah were obliterated by God with fire from Heaven . . . a rather localized geographic site. There were many such examples in the Old Testament.
Evidently you are unaware of or disbelieve that Egypt uniquely suffered the plagues at Moses' hand from God. Not the whole world. Not even all of Africa--Egypt--rather localized.
Perhaps you're forgetting Tyre and Sidon. And the Amelekites.
Perhaps you're unaware of Christ's assertion that those CITIES that rejected the preaching of the Gospel in their midst . . . and had Believers shake the dust of their feet off against them . . . would suffer WORSE than Soddom and Gomorrah.
Or maybe you're just Biblically terminally unaware in general.
Thanks for your kind reply.
. . . as long as you are aware it’s not likely a way to win friends and influence the willfully ignorant.
Thanks for your kind reply.
May The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob be Glorified.
May HIS KINGDOM COME, HIS WILL BE DONE ON EARTH,
IN OUR LIVES;
IN THE LIVES OF THOSE WE LOVE.
... prepping for y2K didn’t win me any popularity contests either ...
... if my loved ones aren’t ready for what’s ahead and if I am able to, I will feed, clothe, and house them ...
... who is to say?
I love the story of Joseph.
It’s in there for a reason.
THX for your kind reply and the wisdom of Scripture in it.
For a growing number of ignorant sheeple . . .
their DAFFYNITION IS:
LOVE = A DOPAMINE HIGH
. . . regardless of whether it comes by . . . terror, violence, sadistic horror movies, tab A in slot Z, illegal or legal drugs, . . . .
We expected this from cuomo and the other democrats but not from the republicans. That’s what makes it so shameful.
“...does this mean gay New Yorkers are going to start voting Republican?”
of course not! Nobody respects a traitor. Look at what happened to Arlen Specter.
I know NY is a liberal state, but any chance of voting any of these RINO’s out and getting true conservatives?
Ooh, ooh, I got more hate mail today, how you been?!
I'd ask you to share it with us, but I think we are dancing on thin ice. (It's that darned Global warming).
Vote those turncoat NY RINO’s out even if replaced with a DemonRat. Whats the difference anyway up there?
I’m not opposed to the free exchange of ideas, nor am I opposed to states flexing their 10th Amendment muscles either. Alabama passed a bill banning gay marriage, and NY allowed it, but Alabama passed their bill first. It will be an interesting though tight-rope battle in courts should someone decide to sue.
Come-on, get with the program!
Hey, I just hijacked my own thread...Sweet!..:=)
I’d rather not feed the trolls. By mentioning them and their garbage, you are giving them satisfaction. I think we just report abuse on them, and ignore. Let the mods handle it.
Lots of posts removed.
this is what comes of leaving it to the states. A Federal marriage amendment must be a priority for the next President.
Would love to see it.
Would likely be about item# 50-75 on the priority list.
and that IF he/she was truly conservative.
After Armageddon. No problem. Though probably wouldn’t be needed.
All such creatures will be wiped off the planet.
I caught a glimpse of one post in passing. It was directed to me. The poster said something about all of us traditional marriage supporters taking up arms. I guess he wanted us all to start killing our political enemies.
When I checked back later, there were about 10 posts that were deleted. I suspect the poster was deleted as well.
“Should Free Republic be closed down for advocating the genocide of gay men?”
I did, what's your point?
FR makes no such threats, violence against anyone is not only prohibited, but true FReepers detest it!
I thought he was way out of line. Guess I should have hit the abuse button right away. I figured someone would get to him sooner or later. Thankfully.
Besides, God has scheduled the cleansing of the earth of every kind of evil . . .
and Scripture says that the heart of all of us is deceitfully wicked, who can know it.
Particularly without the cleansing of the Blood of Jesus.
These liberals have no shame.
It's the way thugs and communists do business!
SUPER HIDEOUS, IMHO.
People would do well to wake up.
The fact that the creatures outside Lot’s door were ready to rape ANGELS FROM ALMIGHTY GOD shows the lengths that such demonized mortals will go.
It is fitting for Christians to be compassionate.
However, at some point, we are called to be warriors . . . realizing that for the most part and most of the time, our BEST weapons are not carnal—but mighty to the tearing down of strongholds As Scripture declares . . .
Spiritual warfare is the most powerful and the most deadly to the enemy.
I’m NOT saying that’s the only kind to wage. One just has to be led of Holy Spirit in all things.
I’m convinced that IF the Christians band together in a geographic area and pray and fast together . . . such forces can be beaten back as much and as long as possible in this worsening END TIMES era.
This has been documented in the abortion fight.
Your history shows you barely make one post a month, the last in April.
Make yourself heard!
No thanks, my moral compass is not dependent upon the whims of useful idiots.
I join in earnest prayer for Spiritual renewal throughout this nation.
Thanks tons for your kind replies.
BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD.
BLESSED BE THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB.
BLESS THE KING OF KINDS AND LORD OF LORDS, JESUS, THE CHRIST, THE MESSIAH OF ISRAEL AND THE CHURCH.
You can bet we'll see that sooner rather than later...
....and as for "the free exchange of ideas?" what we see in our land and in our courts and government is a vile abuse of those freedoms and a wrongful definition of "rights",....when in fact there was a time not long ago we understood these things as "privileges". The waters have been so muddied the differences of the two are completely unidentifiable.
TCH made the stupid mistake of posting a vanity here and then having it published as a letter to the editor in his local paper under his real name.
