    New York State Senate Votes Down Gay Marriage Bill

    Another nail in the coffin of Gay Marriage Disney Dude...........

    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.

    Count on the courts to step in and "correct" a grave injustice to the civil rights of homosexuals.

    Too bad. People will see sense eventually, but It's going to take quite awhile I suspect.

    Better that than to have this "imposed" on an unwilling public.

    How does a court 'correct' a legislature deciding to not pass someting into law?
