Right, because the New York legislature was not elected to their posts by citizens voting, they were put there by Antichrist appointment.

Democracy. It only works when people I like get elected.
12/7/2012 9:41:06 AM
Who did they force you to marry?
12/7/2012 9:46:00 AM
Oh, the humanity! People that you don't know are going to get marriage licences and rights from the secular government! Not to mention that it won't really have any effect on your life at all! You poor thing.
In all seriousness, grow up and mind your own business.
12/7/2012 10:03:03 AM
Damn you, legislature!
12/7/2012 10:07:43 AM
"If you don't like our American system, get the fuck out!"
How does that feel, asshat?

A state legislature outlaws same-sex marriage: The will of the people has been put into law.
A state legislature approves same-sex marriage: The people are being brutally suppressed.
you are not "the people", you are part of "the people". Just because you think something does not mean everybody else everywhere in the country thinks that too. Democracy works through majority, not by god's law and especially not according to the opinion of one person, that is called a dictatorship. If same-sex marriage was "anti-American" and America being the country founded by rebellion and a constitution, you'd think marriage would have been defined as opposite-sex in the constitution. But because the Founding Fathers did not put that in there, it can't be "anti-American".
Now, you might be outraged that something you don't like has been put into law, and if you are a citizen of the State of New York, you have all right to next time vote for different people. The reason why you call this country so great is democracy, and freedom, it's not because it's a theocracy dictated by a closed parliament of clerics. If you can't accept that the majority of people have elected legistlators that don't agree with your personal beliefs, you are personally un-American. Because if you nail this nation down to one thing it always fought for, it was money - and right after that democracy.
Be an American, accept that you lost and move on.

So you want literally every single governmental decision to be made by polling the entire populace? That sure seems efficient.
12/7/2012 10:22:22 AM
Oh no! People you don't know are doing something that doesn't affect you! Call the cops, call the national guard, call the white house, oh wait, you don't like the president cos he's a black guy, forget the white house, just get the bat symbol searchlight out. Then again, Batman would probably just give you a fucking slap for being such an arsehole. You fucking tit.

Jezebel's Evil Sister
Well, the psychotic 52% of us in Maryland who voted to allow same-sex marriage are gaily enjoying our choice to do the right thing.
But, I hope your ilk keep on fighting civil rights tooth and nail ... until your teeth and nails fall out. Every hateful word you say or type just makes it more clear that you're bigots on the losing end of history.
12/7/2012 10:34:56 AM
Dude, you ARE one of the psychotic 1%
12/7/2012 10:54:38 AM
Please stop making the U-P look bad.
12/7/2012 11:30:56 AM
So how far up the ass did the stick go, Yooper?

a tyrannical New York legislature FORCED queer faux “marriage” on the citizens of New York
That's funny. I haven't heard of straight people being dragged to the altar and forced into gay marriages. Was that on Fox News?
12/7/2012 12:04:20 PM
1. Who wants to "bring America to its knees"? (Whatever that means) 2. Why would they want to?
12/7/2012 12:09:13 PM
I've been to NYC recently. It looked remarkably the same as before June 2011. Almost as if allowing gays to marry had the effect of allowing gays to marry, but not signaling the end of civilization.

"In support of an immoral,"
No, just a slightly different family.
A sexual orientation cannot be American or not. There are homosexuals in every country of the world. It's as American as hair and left handedness.
"anti-God agenda designed to bring America to its knees"
Do you trim your beard or wear fabrics of blended fibers? Then you too have an anti-God agenda.
Gay sex is designed to give pleasure to the participating people. Nobody got together and planned to have gay sex to topple America.
12/7/2012 12:55:22 PM
Recognizing civil matrimony between consenting adults of the same gender, as required by the 5th and 14th amendments to the US Constitution guarantee of substantive due process of law, must result in "bringing American to its knees"?
How? Explain that one to me, without appeals to your invisible friend (you know, the zombie with all the neat superpowers).
12/7/2012 2:00:56 PM
If you don't like same sex marriage, then don't get one.
12/7/2012 2:08:19 PM
Unless New York has become a dictatorship they passed the measure with elected officials, elected BY THE PEOPLE. Just because YOU didn't get your way doesn't mean that the people's will wasn't represented.
12/7/2012 2:37:54 PM
Boy the freepers sure are testy these days. I wonder why.
12/7/2012 2:57:51 PM
Nobody is FORCED to marry anyone they don't like, stupid.
Creating more families is pro-family, stupid.
More heterosexuals have STDs than gay people, stupid.
What's so immoral about wanting to consolidate the relationship with the love of your life, stupid?
If the general public accepts gay marriage, then not wanting to accept gay marriage is anti-American, stupid.
Where is the evidence for the existence of your god, stupid?
You can't introduce anything into legislation if only one percent supports it, stupid.
If you want to see who really enjoyed debauchery gaily, check out what Baby Bush and his puppeteers did with America while he was in office, stupid.
Oh, and Gay Men Will Marry Your Girlfriends
if they are not allowed to marry each other, stupid.
12/7/2012 3:00:03 PM
And the people of New York seem happy to keep it that way. Who knows, Y4L, it may come to the UP before long.
12/7/2012 3:15:29 PM
Now, now, Y4L, everything is going to be all right.
12/7/2012 4:40:00 PM
"gaily enjoying the debauchery"
Sounds like fun!
