NY Legislature legalizes gay marriage
AP ^ | June 24, 2011 | MICHAEL GORMLEY

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.

The homosexual agenda is a cancer upon the nation. When you allow it in one part of the body, eventually it will kill the patient.

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.

They are not asking for EQUAL rights. They are asking for SPECIAL rights.

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.

God pays attention to geography and those persistently and outrageously rebelling against Him in particular geographies.

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.

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.

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.

Lots of posts removed.

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.

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.

Apparently whoever posted it was one of the Liberal Trolls trying to make Free Republic look bad. He posted all that crap and then posted a question on Yahoo answers asking if Free Republic should be banned for advocating the nonsense he posted.

These liberals have no shame.

I believe the deleted posts were from the trolls; who after posting hateful, anti-gay comments as a supposed FReeper, (and getting them deleted), posed the question on Yahoo; they do indeed 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.

should someone decide to sue.

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.
