who cares who's divided on the "issue". It's a matter of providing civil recognition and equality to ALL committed households - headed by either same-gender or opposite-gender couples. It's about time somebody in a position of power just steps up and tells it the way it is - we ALL know the fundamental and founding values of the USA "whether they like it or not."

But a substantial number of Senate DEMOCRATS,(many of whom have either been indicted by the feds, or are about to be indicted by the feds, or who have been convicted of felonies, or who have admitted to felonies, or who have resigned because of such felonies) such as DEMOCRATIC Senator Ruben Diaz, are ADAMANTLY OPPOSED to a Marriage Equality bill in New York.

DEMOCRATIC Senator Ruben Diaz just PERSONALLY LED a massive protest the other day AGAINST Equal Marriage Rights. And DEMOCRATIC homosexual Senator Carl Kruger, who voted AGAINST the MARRIAGE EQUALITY bill the last time, was recently INDICTED by the feds along with his homosexual lover.

Welcome to the New York Senate,weary voter..........

Who gives a sh*t which handful of Dems don't support equality.

Name me ONE, a SINGLE REPUBLICAN in the NY Senate who SUPPORTS/SUPPORTED equal marriage rights for same-gender couples. That's right, YOU CAN'T because THEY DON'T - Repugs voted NO as a block last year to the marriage rights bill. NOT ONE supports YOUR right to marry who you choose to marry
