Marriage Equality in New York

Defend EqualityThis news is almost a week old, and you'd have to be living under a rock to not have heard it by now, but it was such good news that I can't resist mentioning it: New York has granted marriage equality to same sex couples.

It required a few Republicans to cross party lines to pass. I get so frustrated with issues becoming so partisan. How does marriage equality tie in with economic policy or other political issues? Why in the hell is this issue so sharply divided on party lines? Republican senator Roy McDonald made a very good statement on this issue that I agree with (found by me via Bad Astronomy).

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, fuck 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.

I just wish more politicians acted like that on more issues.

Congratulations New York. Only 44 states and one federal government left to go.
