    Re: New York to Become the Sixth State to Legalize Gay Marriage

    What is with all the harsh feelings towards this issue? Obviously our ELECTED officials think it's ok to be allowed, so people should really question their fuel for this bashing. I dont understand why people care so much anways, it has nothing to do with them, and usually its because he/she is in-secure with their own sexual orientation. If a gay man down the street from me wants to put a ring around another mans finger and sign a couple papers, power to them! Will America please stop with this out-dated religion based hatred that will lead nowhere but to death and suffering?


    Now, I AGREE that allowing a gay couple to raise chilidren may not be the best thing, but its certainly is not going to alter their maturing into adults. It will not influence their sexual orientation, homosexuality is not a choice, your born that way. For example, did all of you wake up one day and ponder if you will be gay or straight? I sure as hell didnt, I just KNEW I was not gay.

    Where it really gets difficult is when it comes to gay couples having daughters. Girls need mothers to teach and show proper ways for women to act and function in todays society. That is the only tricky issue in my opinion, but still should be allowed, because I dont know about you, but I always wanted to be the opposite of my parents, def. not the same.

    That is all. G O D B L E S S A M E R I C A ! ! !

    This is exactly how I feel this issue should be tackled. At the state level, since licensing of marriage is a state held power. Good for NY, and hopefully other states will follow suit at some time.

    People need to understand that not all their fights need take place at D.C. I believe that if you want change, you begin with yourself. Be the change you want to happen, then pursue it as an activist in your community and then state. The federal government should be the last step. The courts are set up this way, and so too should legislation follow suit. By doing it the other way around, we give the federal government too much unnecessary power, and sacrifice degrees of individual and state autonomy.

    I think this is a good thing. States should have the right to define marriage for themselves considering they are the ones that issue marriage licenses.

    Hey, folks. Lay off Councilman. He's right. When people lose their morality, they begin buggering animals...... But wait!! Did buggering animals begin with gay rights? Nope, they sure didn't. But don't take my word for it. Ask Republican activist Neal Horseley, who was arrested for making terroristic threats against Elton John (one of those horrible immoral gay people). Horseley admitted on FOX News that he had sex with a mule when he was younger. He also had sex with watermelons.

    I know, I know, the first question you are going to ask is "Was it a male or a female mule?"


    Why it was a female mule, of course. There is NOTHING queer about Neal Horseley.

    So I just watched this movie. It is on Netflix for streaming if anyone is curious. It didn't show me anything new though. I think everything presented in that documentary, everyone has already seen / heard of. Or at least things similar to it. The little cartoon about facts about gay people, I am sure people have heard before. The rest is just stories of people who have a gay family member. Not to say this movie didn't make me close to tears at points, I just don't think I would spend another hour and a half of my life to rewatch it or suggest anyone watch it, if they have heard ANYTHING about the gay rights movement. It also does not really address people quoting scripture other than saying, "I read it differently". Don't be a literalist.

    That being said, I am in support of gay marriage and am thrilled to hear the NY passed this bill.

    Is that coming to a court near you?

    We do have NABLA out there wanting to have sex with kids.

    The Governor said he'll sign it now so that's a done deal.
    As a SSM opponent I celebrate NY here, because they further prove that marriage is a state issue, to be handled at the state level, not the federal level.

    NY wants SSM, great, more power to them. My state happened to ban SSM at the constitutional level, and that's our right to do just as NY has the right to legalize it.

    It's been proven that a homosexual couple raising kids is no different from that of a heterosexual couple raising kids.
