    Re: New York State Senate Votes Down Gay Marriage Bill

    Homosexual marriage...


    is gay.


    but aside from that, I don't see why someone, in this case the Gays, who know what they are asking for/demanding is so controversial (Right to get "Married" not just Civilly Unified or Domestically Partnered) won't settle for some in the middle legislation. Can anyone else see how many 'controversial' issues in this country we could avoid entirely if we just met in the middle? But, that's a tall order for a place like America I guess.

    Gay Marriage: Don't give them "Marriage" but allow whatever union they get to be legally recognized as marriage by the State, Employers, Insurance Companies, etc.

    Abortion: So long as it's not endangering the Mother's life, and/or the Government isn't footing the bill, who cares what someone does with their body.


    If someone pays their taxes and doesn't step on anyone else's toes, I don't see why they can't do what they want to. Far too much stress is being put on all these issues that blow them WAY out of proportion and call down massive debate ****storms that bring into account all number of references and talking points and we're still essentially stitting here with our thumbs up our asses.


    "Life isn't fair. It never will be. Learn to deal with it or cheat the System."


    That being said, I'm only for gay marriage if both chicks are hot.

    That's great in real life, but they are not allowed here. I guess you clicked "I Agree" before reading the rules?

    the first amendment is merely a minimum requirement.

    Re: New York State Senate Votes Down Gay Marriage Bill

    Sooo...anyone have a link to the bill itself?

    I mean, as a pro-lifer I've opposed anti-abortion bills based on the merits and flaws on the bill. It's certainly possible that pro-gm did not support this pro-gm bill due to some critical flaw in the bill. For all we know support for gay marriage is as strong as ever.

    Navy since you've already read the raw text of the bill itself to then come to DP and pose an opinion on it, could you please provide the rest of us with the link you already used to read the bill?
