New York Legislature Undermines True Marriage, Family, Society and the Common Good Comments

This issue has been framed as upholding marriage equality. This is not the case since one of the principal purposes of marriage is to bring new life into the world.

    I think this legislation is very sad. So many New Yorkers were against it but their so called politicians voted against it. It seems that the fringe crazies, so many of them wealthy, have taken over. Well the same kind did under Lenin, Trotsky and Hitler so we ought to know what's coming. Many years of common immorality and amorality have brought this degradation of legalized homosexuality on. Well, unless God intervenes the backlash coming will be too horrible to think about. It's called Fascism. We are right were Germany was in the mid 1930"s. The pendulum is about to swing.
