I was in the Watering Hole drinking dollar pints when the NY state Senate legalized gay marriage. And it was good to hear that the country as a whole; in a sort of weak indirect way, had done the right thing. It's only appropriate after all that one can now get gay married in our largest city/capital of sin and secularism.
Of course, there were the same tired old objections in the vein of this.
“God, not Albany, has settled the definition of marriage, a long time ago,”
The assertion that heterosexual monogamy has always been the universal, set-in-stone, instinctively understood norm of human romance has been pointed out as bullshit many times before. Those who continue to make this assertion are either lying or acting upon their exercising their rights as God's chosen ones to invent truth. I won't waste time adding myself to the long list of people who have pointed out that the definition of marriage has in fact changed quite frequently throughout human history. I'll just link to this because it's funny.
