I wasn’t sure it was actually going to happen, since they have a Republican majority in the senate and the past couple days the vote looked like it was going to be really close; and it was. But New York sided with equality by recognizing that consenting adults of either sex should be allowed to marry. Thank you New York! And kudos to Mark Grisanti, who took his religion out of the equation when he cast the deciding vote in the affirmative:
“If I take the Catholic out of me, which is hard to do, then absolutely they should have these rights”, Grisanti said.
Now if only California and the other 43 states would join the 21st century.
For those opposed to gay marriage, I have only 2 questions:
- What, exactly, is it you’re afraid of?
- Taking religion out of the equation, why should gay marriage be illegal?
New York, I’ll say it again — I am proud of you! Well done!
