New York Passes Same-sex Gay Marriage Bill
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools
“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves…And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1
New York dramatically voted tonight to allow same-sex marriage, becoming the biggest state so far to legalise gay marriage in a move that may kick-start a nationwide movement. Gay couples celebrated in the streets after the 62-member, Republican-controlled state Senate approved the bill 33 to 29.
The bill will take effect 30 days after Governor Andrew Cuomo signs it into law. The legislative session went into overtime as conservative lawmakers fought for changes to enhance protection for faith-based groups opposed to recognizing gay marriages.
The decision followed 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 support to pass in the Senate.
After a several undecideds moved to support the bill – including Republican Roy McDonald who famously defended his decision, saying ‘f**k it, I don’t care what you think. I’m trying to do the right thing’ the balance was tipped. source – Daily Mail UK

Last year, Proposition 8 was put before the people of California and they were asked to vote on it. The people overwhelmingly voted AGAINST the Pro-Gay Marriage bill, and it was resoundingly defeated. But why let a little thing like the ‘will of the people’ stand in the way of the radical, Far-Left Gay Agenda? Today, Prop 8 was overturned in defiance of the clearly expressed and duly voted upon will of the people.
