Friday, June 24th 2011 will go down in infamy in the State of New York as the day that four trusted Republican legislators sold their souls and their votes to the Sodomites and *** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

We have it in our power as voters to ensure that this never happens again with these false Republicans. These are their names...

(1) JAMES S. ALESI - Monroe County New York

*** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

(2) MARK GRISANTI - Western New York

*** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

(3) ROY J. MCDONALD - Rensselaer, Saratoga Counties New York

*** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

(4) STEVEN M. SALAND - Columbia and Dutchess Counties New York

*** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

NEVER FORGET THOSE FOUR NAMES.

If any of these these creatures ever dares to run for public office in this State again...

VOTE THEM OUT !!!!!!

because i'm not a bored hag who has to be in everyone's business, and because human rights are human rights and should not be left up to the average bigoted citizen to decide upon.

I honestly just do not understand what harm same sex mariages cause heterosexual couples.These people aren’t infiltrating your household and corrupting your children. They just want to live their own lives in unity just like everyone else.

And why is the Bible the go-to argument? There are so many religions in the world—even in the United States alone. Why are people overusing this flawed rebuttal? If you are religious, fine; enjoy your spiritual life, but don’t push your beliefs and customs onto me. What happened to separation between church and state? What do I care if your god supposedly frowns upon my past relationship?

And it is disappointing to see people let their negative emotions get the best of them while debating this topic. I feel as if I live in a world where no one is over the mental age of three. The arguments on both sides of the spectrum often get so radical that I sometimes have to disagree and call out some people who share my same view point on this issue.

The main issue here is respect. We do not respect anyone anymore; not their opinions, nor their beliefs, nor their interests, nor their decisions. Explain your opinion in an intelligent and dignified manner and I will accept it, but if you simply scream “GAYS ARE SINNERS AND WILL ALL GO TO HELL!” or “GOD DOESN’T EXIST THE BIBLE IS FAKE AND YOU ARE AN IGNORANT DOUCHEBAG!” then I will very likely value your comment less than a more structured one. Not because your opinion is irrelevant to me or worthless, but because you are being inconsiderate to the sentiments of others and are doing nothing to portray your ideas in a positive light.

I support gay marriage one hundred percent. It makes me feel warm and happy when I see two men or two women holding hands in public; I think “Wow, I wish I could have done that with my girlfriend.” Now that I have a boyfriend, no one will look at me badly if I hold hands with him, and I believe that it is unfair that people are treated differently merely on who their partner is. We’re all humans. Am I any better now that I have a boyfriend than when I was with my girlfriend? I think not.

Why oppose it? There's no good reason behind it at all, your precious Bible aside.

Actually the opposite is what is true. There is no logical reason for homosexuals to get married.

Correction, explain yourself? Your answer makes NO logical sense.
Not much scares me, but people like "Spread The WORD" above do. That kind of backwards repressed thinking is what is going to sink this country, NOT save it. And save it from what? the evil "sodomites"??? That is a fucking laugh!
It's actually kind of fun having conversations with the likes of that freak. It's fun to mess with them and get them all riled up. They are SO passionate about such an anemic subject that I hope they pop a blood vessel.
