My wife and i were just watching the the state senate hearing and the bill to allow same sex marriage was just passed,Its now official New York state now allows same sex marriage.There was also a provision in the bill preventing religous institutions and groups as well as other not for profit groups from being taken to court for refusing to mary same sex couples.Also if a court finds that provision illegal then the rest of the bill becomes illegal as well.Tricky huh.

YAY!!!!! Score one for common decency

About time.

Go run hide religionists...your marriages are undoubtedly threatened now, and complete dissolution is imminent.

Even though I was brought up in a "religious" environment I have never understood why gay marriage was never allowed. If one person truly cares for another person enough to commit to them for the rest of their lives, who is anyone to stand in the way of that? They are not forcing it on me, and it harms me in no way shape or form, so what is the big deal? Glad to see that people are coming around to realize the hypocrisy in some of the laws.

May I ask where you do live? I'm From Texas myself.

I say good for New York.... While I think it is safe to bet that Texas will be one of the last to pass such a bill, I can always hope they are the next to do so.


Power to the people!


Here is to equal rights, folks. Cheers.

Have to applaud after all there's nothing wrong with gay marriage as long as both parties are consenting adults

I am sure NY is thanking God that you don't live there too.

One more thing our religious wackos can blame when the repercussions of our foreign policy and environmental degradation really come home to roost.

This is useless. Look at you people. If you just knew the caliber and number of bills that are being passed daily to take away your freedoms. And now they show this bill and all of you smile like good sheep.

Same sex marriage approved... OH wow! Big deal. If you just knew...
