700 Clergy and Lay Leaders from Across New York State Call on New York Senate to Pass Marriage Bill
MunchingZombie saidWhile Republicans suck and suck hard, we need to elect better Democrats.QFT.
Rodmramer saidRudy Guilliani supports gay marriage
You might also mention that it is uniformly opposed by Republicans in the New York State legislature. So that Republican Party advocates here can explain why they support the anti-gay Republican Party.
MikePhilPerez saidI hope those on here that say us gay Christians are supporting an anti-gay Church, read this.

The weasel word is "an".
MunchingZombie saidThat is incorrect Vespa. Five members of the GOP voted for marriage equality in the Assembly, including Dede Scozzafava who was forced out of the NY-23 congressional race due to, in part, her support for marriage equality.
Now we go to the Senate where the Democratic majority leader/douchebag Pedro Espada opposes it. Democrats like Bill Stachowski (who represents the largest concentration of GLBT people in Western New York) and Ruben Diaz (who has a gay brother) opposes it. None of the 30 Republicans have come out in favor of the bill, but several Democrats have come out against it.
While Republicans suck and suck hard, we need to elect better Democrats.
Red_Vespa saidRodmramer saidRudy Guilliani supports gay marriage
Rudy Giuliani does drag, and is likely a closet case. As I stated previously, all NY state Republicans oppose this bill, and sadly some Democrats. We can but wait & see how it turns out.
McGay saidIt doesn't change the official stance of your church, Mike, the catholic church. Instead of lobbying us to be nice to your church, why not lobby your church and the piece of shit in charge of it to be nice to us?
