New York State Gay Marriage Problem

The gay community has waited for years for Democrats to gain control of the New York State Senate in the hope that a marriage equality bill would finally be passed. Now that the Dems have a slight majority the issue of gay marriage has become a political football with three conservative Democratic senators threatening to withhold their support from the Democratic candidate for senate leader. These renegade senators, one of whom is some sort of minister from Brooklyn, are opposed to gay marriage, and they are demanding that the issue not be voted upon.

WTF? ...if you know what I mean. On the heels of Prop 8 we now have this fiasco in New York State, where once again religionists are standing in the way of equality for gay people. When will it ever end?
