    ALBANY The New York State Senate decisively rejected a bill on Wednesday that would have allowed gay couples to wed, providing a major victory for those who oppose same-sex marriage and underscoring the deep and passionate divisions surrounding the issue

    The 38-to-24 vote startled proponents of the bill and signaled that political momentum, at least right now, had shifted against same-sex marriage, even in heavily Democratic New York. It followed more than a year of lobbying by gay rights organizations, who steered close to $1 million into New York legislative races to boost support for the measure.
    Now the homophobes and bigots can come out to play because the world is again safe and christian and whatever else they've cooked up in their angry little heads...

    And by 'little', I mean these people are stupid beyond stupid...

    Yeah and the server is in the US also, as is the Admin, most of the mod team and the majority of DP's member population.

    That doesn't make DebatePolitics.com a Democracy.

    but it means you are in a nation which sees the first amendment as merely a minimum requirement of freedom and democracy.

    so we have about 4500 body bags so debatepolitics.com can have rules that go against the spirit of freedom and democracy.

    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?
    I am only interested in the point that a very liberal democrat controlled state gov. voted down a bill to that would allow gay marriage....

    The 1st amendment is a limit on the actions of government.

    DP, DP rules and DP mods are not part of the government (though some of the Mods have a God complex ).

    So, the 1st amendment doesn't apply here.

    no libertarians should be posting here then if they really believe what they say they believe in. instead, this place should be full of netnazis.

    the limit would be to protect freedom and democracy. indeed, other authorities within the usa should follow that shining example.
