6 states down, 44 to go.

While I still believe that sexual orientation is still a social construct and not a biological one this is fantastic news for New York. Hopefully it is a sign that bigots will be drowned out in every state. I really hope that this leads to the overturning of the DOMA.


Albany, New York (CNN) -- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the state's marriage equality bill hours after it passed the Republican-controlled Senate on Friday night, making it the sixth state in the nation to legalize same-sex marriage.

Cuomo signed the bill into law after the legislature cleared the way to legalize same-sex marriage with a 33-to-29 vote, the first time a state legislature with a Republican majority has approved such a bill.

This is a great victory for equality.

I know that this thread will get many responses filled with hate speech and bigotry, but your words do not matter. You lose.

Well not everyone checks the news forums and I figured that this would be a good place to discuss it.

Not everyone shares your glee.

Gay marriage upsets the natural order of Nature. If Nature wanted 2 males to be able to reproduce, nature in its infinite Wisdom would have done so through the ages.

It's wrong and all States need to ban it.

Sex does not always equal reproduction. Not even in the rest of the animal kingdom. Bonobos and Bottlenose Dolphins regularly engage in recreational sex with both males and females.

That's fine as far as "equality". I really don't care as long as they don't "hit on me" or get too close to my children.

Uganda has the right idea when it comes to faggots.


Is that a ban I smell? (or at least a snip)

Yeah there you go let's divide our race even more
, sheesh you sheep are always so caught up in the most non-significant things Let me ask you something, would same sex marriage being legal actually affect YOU in any way? if not than stop thinking about yourself and start thinking about us(as a whole).

Why does my disagreement on homosexuality make me a hateful bigot in society's eyes?

I don't care if they get what they desire but you'll never hear me say it's an ok or good thing to do. Which is what seems to really be under attack, like they want me to say that.

Oh no, never be under the illusion that you have the right to protect your children from being exposed to this filth, or your home, or even yourself. You have absolutely no right to speak out against these homosexuals, because it's "discrimination", you just have to sit there and watch as the moral groundings you were raised on get smashed away by the jackhammer of political correctness.

Modernize? Sodomy has been around since the beginning of time. I personally am against it, but I'm not going to vote either way or anything like that. My problem is that I don't want children growing up seeing homosexuals making out in public, but that of course makes me a bigot. But I have reasons for being against homosexual marriage. It's against the laws of nature. Male+Female=Child but Male/Female+Male/Female=NOTHING. Sure be gay if you want but you're not helping the world in any way shape or form. It saddens me to think all those children that could be born, but aren't because of people being gay.

You know I've notice that when it comes to religion or Gay Marriage, all the ignorant trolls/morons come out and attack without second thinking. Why is that?

Whoah,pal I'm against homosexuality too but you DO NOT need to call them faggots. I am alerting this because it is wrong whether you're for it or against it.

I've already pointed out that in nature (which humans are a part of and subject to the laws of) sex is not always conducted for reproductive purposes. As well science is continually trumping nature, soon no doubt, we will be able to create children from the DNA of two individuals of the same gender without needing a donor egg.

Im not religious or for gay marriage, but I have my reasons for being against it and in my eyes they're good reasons. Everyone has the right to their own opinions and shouldn't be called ignorant or moronic for their beliefs. The same could easily be said to you. Not saying you are or anything, but that's how humans are. We stick to our ideals and beliefs and to call someone ignorant for that is ignorance itself because you are doing the same as them

Let me put an end to the gay marriage argument before it really starts up:

Gays should be afforded the same financial rights as other couples.

But marriage is a religious term, so it should be abided to with the religious guidelines.

All you have to do is make civil unions have all the rights as married people, so all can be on same footing. Then marriage becomes just an arbitrary word.

Done and done

*washes hands of the matter*
