    Thumbs up Tide Turning on Gay Marriage

    New York is moving closer to becoming the largest state to grant same-sex couples the right to marry.

    Four lawmakers who voted against gay marriage two years ago, including one Republican, declared on Monday that they would now vote in favor of allowing gays to wed.

    Their public statements—deliberately timed to emerge just before the end of the legislative session—added significant momentum behind passage of same-sex marriage legislation. Shortly afterward, after huddling with gay leaders, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he would advance a gay-marriage bill, setting the stage for a vote this week.

    "This is a very significant development...I believe the votes will be there for marriage equality," said Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat. "We're moving toward the goal line, but we're not there yet. We need Republicans to take up this issue."

    Hopefully they will be successful this time. We need some major states to weigh in on this.

    Re: Tide Turning on Gay Marriage

    I don't believe in Gay marriage but it also is not going to affect me one way or the other as long as it is not talked about in schools to children and made to seem normal.
    I know Day people think it is normal, at least my Gay brother thinks so.

    I don't care what they do but I don't need to hear about it or see it in a parade.

    How would it be if we held heterosexual parades? Tasteless in my book as are Gay pride ones.

    My thinking is that once homosexuality is mainstream, there will be as much motive to hold a gay pride parade as there is to hold a straight pride parade.

    I'm not gay myself, but that's just my guess.

    What's wrong with being gay being seen as normal? What, do you think it will make people gay?

    I agree. The only reason that gay people need to have pride parades is to overcome the stigma associated with it, and to dispel the idea that it's something that people should be ashamed of. Once those prejudices disappear, so will gay pride parades.

    Hmmm and I still don't feel the urge to turn gay.
    Even though it looks like another state is going to have gay marriage.

    Re: Tide Turning on Gay Marriage

    Over time the laws will change in all the states. Same sex marriage will be an issue that will fade into the past. It will be common place.

    Why shouldn't children be made aware of the fact that sometimes two men or two women get married? What harm will come from this knowledge?

    Are you more likely to marry a dude if it becomes legal?

    What is not normal about same sex relationships?
