The State of New York passes a Marriage Equality bill approved by a margin of 33-29 that gave Gay and Lesbian couples the right to wed. The new law, which took effect a month later on July 24, made New York the largest state to allow same-sex marriage. New York State became the sixth in America to change its marriage law, joining countries including Canada, Sweden, Argentina, and even Catholic Spain. Following a segment on the New York marriage equality vote, radical religious idiot Pat Robertson warned that America is becoming Sodom and will suffer the same fate of destruction, according to Right Wing Watch.
Robertson is also inclined to blame hurricanes on the LGBT community: “In history, there has never been a civilization that has embraced homosexuality and turned away from traditional fidelity, traditional marriage, traditional child-rearing and has survived. There isn’t one single civilization that has survived…So you say, ‘what’s going to happen to America?’
If history is any guide, the same thing is going to happen to us. Right Pat…like the Rapture. Anyone remember the Rapture from last year? Or the year before that? Why can’t we hold these people responsible for their ignorant and hateful rantings? Marriage equality now exists. Everywhere. So far so good. But do not take it for granted. They continue a full on assault our rights and the Constitution. RESIST!
