NY Senate voted bill allowed same-sex marriage

Yesterday, the New York State Senate voted down a bill that would have allowed same-sex marriage, by 38-24. Not surprisingly, political party was the overwhelming determinant of the vote: while some Democrats voted against, all the Republicans did.

I am 100% in favor of marriage between consenting adults. Period. I’ve written about this many times (here and here and especially here). It’s not my business what flavor of humanity they love. I could go the route of saying that I have gay friends who deserve the right to get married, but that’s a cop out: it doesn’t matter whom I know. It’s a matter of equality, and we should know instinctively that equality is the right thing to fight for.
