You can marry a person of the same gender in New York City, but you can’t eat your own wedding cake without Bloomberg slapping it out of your hands

"Why won't you let me be HAPPY???"

Congratulations, I guess?

New York lawmakers narrowly voted to legalize same-sex marriage Friday, handing activists a breakthrough victory in the state where the gay rights movement was born.

New York will become the sixth state where gay couples can wed and the biggest by far.

“We are leaders and we join other proud states that recognize our families and the battle will now go on in other states,” said Sen. Thomas Duane, a Democrat.

It’s official: Now both straight and gay couples in NYC will have the equal right to wonder what Anderson Cooper is waiting for.

Hey, once gender becomes a meaningless construct, will I finally get to join a sorority? Hang out in the ladies’ room? Wait tables at Hooters? After all, I’m a person, not a gender. Ha ha, just kidding, made you think about the implications of your own rhetoric for a second.

Well, there’s still time to block gay weddings, social conservatives: Just tell Bloomberg that they’re fun.

If that doesn’t work, try to enjoy the show. The weddings at St. Gaga’s Cathedral will be better than Barnum & Bailey, and the receptions at Greg Gutfeld’s Ground Zero gay bar will be AWESOME. And just think of the divorces! OMG, the divorces. This is like free movie tickets for life, you guys.

P.S. As Gay Patriot notes: “It passed with Republican votes — and in a legislative chamber run by the GOP.” Look out, lefties, it’s a trap! An evil Republican trap!

    Marriage now is state recognition that two people choose to form a single economic unit, with that unit having all of the rights that used to be associated only with married people. Let’s imagine a 54 year old single man caring for his 78 year old mother, father deceased. Mom’s health is not great and she’s just started taking Alzhiemer’s onset delay drugs. Is there any reason mother and son shouldn’t, and now couldn’t, get “married” ? This is their lifestyle, the procreational element has been removed from marriage, all of the health insurance, medical consent heart-string anecdotes apply here too. Plus, there are no death taxes on death of a “spouse”, right?

    Where on this planet would you consider a union of two creatures incapable of procreation to be normal or “equal”? As most LBGTs are liberals and either athiests, agnostics or at least pantheists, they can, for their convenience set aside the Judeo-Christian view of marriage. Fine, let them, I am agnostic myself. But still, how can they assume they are equal or normal under any scientific or moral view. As non Judeo-Christians they are far more likely to believe in evolution and the law of natural selection. Here again it is not normal or equal. It is aberrant to natural science and the system. Logically LBGTs should simply decrease or remain static over time. Just ask Darwin. Yes, I do believe that most are “born that way”, but many are recruited or converted. Society is now being forced by edict to treat them as normal and/or equal which permits them to propagate through recruitment or adoption. If you think of it in terms of natural science they will become an “invasive species” one that threatens to disrupt or at worst overtake the natural balance of the system. As the LBGT agenda becomes more radicalized (and it is becoming more radicalized)it becomes more disruptive. The teaching of LBGT lifestyles as normal and acceptable in the public education system, equal rights of adoption, circumscibing the free speech of anyone that doesn’t support them among other things. Like the Asian Carp infestation of the Great Lakes we’ll ignore it until the entire system is ready to collapse.

    EQUALITY IS GOD’S WAY

    Because God didn’t lay out any kind of, you know, rules or anything.

    (Not a religious person here, but I’m kind of certain that THE BIG GUY set some rules. Some of which were not cool with the same-sex boning.)

    Equality, in other words, is a fairly modern–and nice, I might add–concept.

      Why can’t they put words in gods mouth just like every other believer on the planet. There’s no credible evidence that any other believer has ever received a “rule” from any god, be it Zeus, Odin, Yahweh, Allah, Mithras, or Mothra.

      You do have a correct sentence in you comment: “Because God didn’t lay out any kind of, you know, rules or anything.”

        No credible evidence – except the Bible? Or the continued existence of the Israelites (see Pascal)?

        • Brian Macker

          The bible is only credible to people who believe in talking snakes, and think the entire world can flood simultaneously. In other words, rubes.

    Yet another reason to leave NY!

    Bloomberg!

    Just have to add:

    the sign says, “Marriage is defined by commitment, not gender.” Um, no — it’s defined as the leading cause of divorce. Welcome to the real world, folks. Time to start a new business, “Pre-nupts for the rainbow gender.”

    HAHA…That title is award worthy!
