    Althought the NY State Senate voted down gay marriage with a 38-24 vote yesterday, Senator Diane Savino should be applauded for her wonderful speech.

    Kudos to the Senator... all she said was quite true. Why do people point the finger at us when half the straight marriages taking place are the subject to fail?

    Marriage should just be like it was in the bible: an agreement between two consenting men that one of them would take the other one´s daughter and own her. It´s what Jesus wants.

    In the bible of course, divorced women are never allowed to marry again.

    Unfortunately, it does not change the sad fact that gay marriage might never happen in the State of New York thanks to the primitive minded conservatives in the state senate. icon_sad.gif

    That's an, uh, interesting comment, considering that Jesus of Nazareth did more to elevate the status of women than any previous social philosopher in Western history. It was Paul, misogynistic closet case, that fucked up Christianity...

    Thank you for posting that. Send that clip to all the younger people in your family. Your neices and nephews, cousins, neighbors. Our hope is with people who haven't grown up with all the bias and fears. We need to help them understand the issue, and to have answers when confronted by stupidity by those who claim to have god, social stability and religion on their side.

    If you know people in New Jersey, send it too them. The vote is coming next week, I think.

    To be fair,
    some other Senators who should be acknowledged.

    Take a moment if you will to listen to their words.

    Too bad the church won again.
