Gay couples and proponents of gay rights have a reason to celebrate tonight, as the New York State Senate has passed a bill that allows same sex marriage.New York Republicans had the power to stop this. But they caved. Not only to a liberal governor who put unprecedented pressure on them to pass this immoral act, but the radically-leftist media here who literally begged, pressured and smeared them to get it done.
New York will be the sixth, and largest, state in the union to adopt gay marriage. The bill will take effect 30 days after governor Andrew Cuomo signs it into law.
The decision, which passed 33-29, was the culmination of weeks of contentious debate and negotiations between Governor Cuomo and the GOP-controlled Senate. After the bill passed in the Assembly, it was unclear if the bill had secured enough votes to pass in the Senate. When a few notable undecideds joined the cause --including Republican Roy McDonald who famously defended his decision, saying "fuck it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing" -- the scale in favor of gay marriage seemed to tip.
Homosexuality is an immoral, behavioral choice. It is up and down wrong. The super-rich and powerful gay lobbyists in this country knew full-well going in that getting New York to approve same-sex marriage would go a big way towards pushing their agenda forward, while further destroying the moral fabric of this country. Yet, Republican Senate had a chance to stop this from happening and they blew it...bigtime. Each one of the four GOP heads who bowed down to Andrew Cuomo here deserves to lose their job as through their vote they not only spat on marriage, but in the face of their constituents.
