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.
