Gay Marriage

Look for "Gay Marriage" to become quite the political hot potato in the weeks and months to come ;)
The Albany Project: Spitzer Keeps Gay Marriage Promise
NY1: "...The bill would establish equal responsibilities, benefits and protections for same-sex couples. The bill also says that churches can be compelled to perform same-sex marriages. " Hmmm... is that right? Politics on the Hudson reports "No clergy member of religious institution would be compelled to perform gay marriages."
Anyway, along with that move came a decision from the New York State Department of Civil Services stated that legally married, same-sex spouses of state employees would be eligible for medical and other benefits administered through its Employee Benefits Division.

  2. It’s a sad commentary about America that a man who sexually desires a hot, sexy 16 year old is labeled a "sexual deviant" while men who play with each other's willies get a free pass. Despite their claim to being "scientific," it’s amazing how so many of the things that the left defends have no basis in science, or contradict a fundamental point.

  4. I wonder... when Massachusetts (or maybe New York) begins sanctioning 3-way marriages, will the rest of us be subject to hate crime penalties for criticizing that as a perversion?
    We have a bonafide homo here at work who looks at gay porn all day long, while management looks the other way!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
