New Yorkers vow to overturn same-sex marriage law, just like Californians did

Following California voters’ success in repealing their legislators’ legalization of same-sex marriage, New Yorkers are planning an initiative to put the issue on the ballot.

“New York same-sex ‘marriage’ advocates will soon face a backlash for forcing the new ‘marriage’ law through the legislature, including a campaign to oust turncoat lawmakers and a ballot initiative to enshrine traditional marriage in the state constitution, the National Organization for Marriage has said,” reports Kathleen Gilbert of LifeSiteNews. “The group has announced that the fight for true marriage is not over in the Empire State.”

“It’s high time for change in Albany,” says NOM President Brian Brown.

Same-sex marriage advocates have expressed frustration that voters nationwide have banned homosexual unions when the issue appears on the ballot. Thus, the strategy has been to seek legalization in state legislatures and to attempt to overturn public votes through friendly judges.

Banning this law in NY will never happen. Why? I know my New Yorkers.

Sore losers, I guess. Hope you are right, Henrietta. Would hate to see this happen in NY like it did in California.

I wonder if Henrietta22 knows any New Yorkers north of the Bronx? Upstate New York has always been predominantly Republican.

Isn’t against the Christian religion to harm people? That’s what happens when gays and lesbians, especially those with children, are prevented from marrying. So if we’re worried about religious protections, shouldn’t we legalize same-sex marriage as quickly as possible?

I get tired of hearing about how “the people must decide” when it comes to same-sex marriage. 90% of “the people” aren’t affected in any real way. And the rest either support it or don’t care either way. The enemies of the gay community want it to come to a vote, so they can spend a load of money convincing gullible people that the fate of the world is at stake. They don’t care if a small portion of the population suffers as long as the country remains subject to their personal moral code.

They want a vote because they don’t believe that 90% of people are gullible like some homosexual advocates do, they believe people think.

They want a vote because they believe that they should have a say in how you live. Period. They’re not content screwing up their own lives, they want to make sure that yours are as unhappy as theirs.

To take moment to reflect, what magical powers are we heterosexuals purported to have that makes us such great arbiters of right and wrong? If history is any indication, we haven’t done such a good job of making decisions, to date.

For example:

Heterosexuals ruined marriage. We had “the perfect way for men and women to live,” but apparently couldn’t handle that. So we wrecked it and took society with us.

Heterosexuals start all the wars. When was the last time a homosexual started a war or bombed a cafe, or flew a plane into anything?

Heterosexuals screwed up the economy. It wasn’t the gays that foreclosed on all those homes or who invented derivatives and sold them like Ponzi.

Heterosexuals can’t even raise their own kids. Have you seen the news?

And why again should we listen to us when it comes to whether the gays should be allowed to get married?

When we’ve been so wrong about so much, why are we so convinced we’re right about this?
