Marriage was, is, and should ONLY be between a man and woman. EVERY mainstream religion believes this. Any same sex relationship should be called something else. The very small minority of people supporting this should never have such a devastating influence...don't let the tail wag the dog! The mainstream media doesn't report accurate polls...overwhelming majority of Americans are against this.

Marriage is a commitment between two people who love each other and are willing to share their life with that one other person. Regardless of the sex, if two people are willing to commit their life to each other they should be supported. They should actually be applauded!

There is no rational reason anyone can give to deny the right to marry to homosexuals. Marriage is not a religious ceremony it is civil. If you argue it is supported by tradition, you are wrong. There are many ancient traditions that allowed same sex parties to marry. In addition, tradition in the United States used to preclude whites and blacks from marrying, do you advocate that as well? The preclusion of allowing marriages between same sex couples only harms everyone involved. It perpetuates stereotypes that same-sex couples are not "normal." It prevents partners from their equal rights under the laws that provided for married spouses. It also harms children of homosexual partners to a GREAT extent legally and socially. What basis is there for allowing such inviduous discrimination?!

marriage is an immutable odea. Joining two people of the same gender, call it something else.

I would say bigotry is more evil than two consenting adults.

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 !!!!!!

I've seen so many people miserable, two people who are able to find something like love that many of us will never understand, how can you possibly deny them that?
