Question of the Day: Do You Support Gay Marriage?

New York could become the sixth U.S. state to legalize same sex marriage.

A bill that would legalize same sex marriage in New York could go before the state Senate this week.

The bill needs one vote to pass before the legislative session ends on Friday, although several senators have yet to commit to a vote.

If the bill passes, New York would become the sixth state to legalize gay marriage, joining Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Washington, D.C.

Our Question of the Day is: Do you support the legalization of gay marriage in New York?

Name-calling and insulting opponents, rather than honest debate on the issues, is a well-known tactic of the left-wing mob. It does not always work, because some of us are not afraid of the mob.

Actually... Progressive -- favoring or advocating progress, change, improvement, or reform, as opposed to wishing to maintain things as they are, especially in political matters.

Actually, the real question is "why is it such a big deal to call it marriage?" Calling it something else would discern them. Why should they live by a different standard in this free country? Is there a footnote at the bottom of the listed unalienable rights that says, "except for homosexuals"?

It's not necessarily to win an argument, it's to show support. When people read these articles and all they see is the blind hatred (or polite ignorance), it reflects poorly on our area. It's important to show that there is a strong support for people of every sexual orientation... in addition to the unfortunate bigots. So, again, it's not to win the argument, but to show that not everybody in this area is an intolerant bigot.
