Republican Senator: "F**k it, Gays Should Marry"

http://www.tmz.com/2011/06/17/republ...t-thing-quote/

Quote:
Republican New York State Senator Roy McDonald has SHATTERED party lines in support of gay marriage -- telling reporters, "F**k it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing."

The battle rages on in New York to legalize gay marriage -- but McDonald threw his hat in the ring earlier this week ... with the greatest statement of all time, claiming, "You get to the point where you evolve in your life where everything isn't black and white, good and bad, and you try to do the right thing."

"You might not like that. You might be very cynical about that. Well, f**k it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing."

"I'm tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background. I'm trying to do the right thing, and that's where I'm going with this."

With McDonald's support, the gay marriage bill is only ONE vote shy of being made into law -- which would make New York the sixth state to legalize gay marriage.


Well, this is a refreshing perspective. Good for him.

Why in the **** is it a law that gay people can't be married?

Looks like it's not going to take the conservatives too long to change on this issue. It's just too incredibly obvious what the right thing is and how this is going to be perceived by history.

There is almost no chance that gay marriage doesn't eventually win out everywhere, and the longer that homophobes stick to their guns on this one the worse they're going to look.

Fine, let them marry. But I draw the line at them breeding.

All for civil unions being allowed. You should be able to be with whomever you want and be legally recognized as a couple, partnership, family, whatever.

However, iMHO, marriage is an institution of the church and should remain as such lest we cross that ever-feared line in the separation between church and state.

Aren't churches still free to decide who they'll marry even if "gay marriage" is made legal?
