An Historic Moment in New York History - New York Legalizes Gay Marriage
-by Scott Rohter, July 2011
I woke up yesterday to the news that a historic moment had occurred in New York... a great moment in New York's hostory, and by that I’m not referring to the unbelievable nerve of Congressman Anthony Weiner. The New York State Legislature had passed an "historic" piece of legislation giving its approval to “gay marriage”. Governor Andrew Cuomo rushed so fast to a public microphone in Albany to announce that he would sign the bill that he nearly fell over his own two feet. In about thirty days, homosexuals from all over New York will also be running somewhere to an alter near you to wed their same-sex lovers, and since there is no residency requirement in New York, I guess they will be coming from all over the entire country as well.
Yes indeed, history has occurred in New York, but by that I am not referring to the New York State Legislature’s pathetic capitulation to the nearly non-stop lobbying effort of the gay and lesbian community. I’m referring to an historic failure of the institutions of our representative democracy, because after this it is neither representative nor domocratic any more, at least not in New York. We have elected RINOs i.e. Republicans in Name Only who always stand for surrender. With only a little difficulty the term RINO can now be stretched to include our new Republic in Name Only. Then we have LINOs, which stands for Life In Name Only candidates, like Mitt Romney and Herman Cain, two Republicans who were running for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2012, but who refused to sign the Susan B. Anthony Pro Life Pledge. And finally with this statewide failure of the institutions of representative government in New York, I think we have observed the birth of a new era in American politics. New York is really now just a "state of mind", just like California is... New York is now the State of Anthony Wiener, not Susan B. Anthony. New York is now the State of Gay Marriage, instead of family values. And New York is now in a near total state of confusion.
But just for the record, out of all the states that have legalized gay marriage, and there are only six in the whole country so far, New York is just the latest and the largest.There is not a single time where it has been by done by the consent of the voters. Every single time the people have been given the opportunity to vote up or down on the question of legalizing gay marriage, they have always said NO, one-hundred percent of the time. In each state where gay marriage has been legalized, it has either been done by court order, or by an action of the State Legislature. Massachusetts, Iowa, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and New York, are the only states so far to have legalized gay marriage. But I am sure that the ‘Purveyors of Deception’ in the lberal media’ will not let that little statistic deter them. They will continue to trumpet their latest victory in New York as if it is some kind of grand national trend that is sweeping the whole country by storm, while quite literally the opposite is true. Here is a little fact for the liberals in the mainstream media. Thirty-one States have actually voted on the question of legalizing gay marriage, and in all thirty-one States the people have said no. The way I see it, that represents a national trend. Maybe they should consider that before they get too elated!
