As gay rights advocates intensify their campaign to legalize same-sex marriage in New York, the bulk of their money is coming from an unexpected source: a group of conservative financiers and wealthy donors to the Republican Party, most of whom are known for bankrolling right-leaning candidates and causes.

that paper if so full of $hit! I live in NY and everyone laughs! keep believing nonsense Ralph! Like I said post actual Facts! not rubbish!
My you are a "truther" through and through. Did you even read the article? What in it did you find not factual?
I have John, You do not! You just post your usual one liner to divert attention away from the facts.
That article is not wrong. First why report about donations that anyone can check on to se if they are true or not. While I would like to think that the Repubs have changed their minds about gay marriage, The Repubs want to win the next election cycle. So despite being a Repub who was always in favor of gay marriage when the rest was not, I have to question if it is a true shift or an election move.
I do not know, I would say a election move if I was to bet. My Response to Ralphy Boy was that I do not trust the NY times! That paper is the biggest joke and the numbers are close to nothing! Smart people are waking up to this nonsense. I would not even waste time to read an article from them.
"Everyone know the NYtimes is a joke."
The NY Times is far from perfect, but informed people consider it the American newspaper of record. I wouldn't say that "whatever Fox News says is untrue," but I do think the late Glenn Beck is out of touch with reality and that Hannity regularly stretches the truth way out of shape.
If you don't believe that some rich GOP donors are supporting the repeal of DOMA why don't you check the NYTimes report out? Your reply is a "joke."
Here are the names of the donors who support same sex marriage mentioned in the article:
John Feinblatt (Bloomberg policy adviser)
The 8 track use to be the great way to listen to music, NOT anymore! The NY times Is garbage.
Glenn Beck is still around and going to be even bigger! mark my words! He was on at 5pm eastern, not the greatest time and still had 4X better numbers than CNN and MSNBC in primetime! Is he out there? I always thought he was, But have you really checked out most of the things this man has predicted and said? Unbelievably he is so right on on many things it truly is scary! I thought he was crazy...real crazy but I have an open mind and actually checked what he says and did my own investigating and everything was for the most part 110% true! and his predictions especially with the middle east is right on! I can guarantee you can not dispute that in anyway possible! just from January he has been so dam on the money it really is scary. Hannity definitely leans RIGHT! Oreilly is pretty fair I must say, and G. van sustren is very fair also. I call it the way I see it.
Why am I not surprised that Danny is a Glenn Beck lover?
Not a lover, Just find it very interesting. Like I said, I thought he was nuts but he does speak the truth! I can guarantee you can't prove it is wrong, I tried very hard. He does say some far out there things at times and too righteous for me, But mostly everything he says is right on.
110%! I've told you a million times not to exaggerate Danny.
Glenn Beck is a drama queen, Hannity is a cry baby, O'reilly is a bully, because when he starts to lose he gets loud and since it's his show, guess who get's more air time. BTW,look at O'reilly and his guests when, - You - watch because they are looking at something at their left or right,most likely ,The Script. Greta is just doing her job,she is a smart woman.Stop relying on them for information,if you want to get lied to ,get married.
I think gay marriage is basically inevitable in the US. The polls show that Americans in general have become steadily less homophobic and more open to civil unions and gay marriage over the years. There are a number of Republicans who support it, and it is growing.
The article mentions the economic potential of legalizing gay marriage, which is a great point. Just imagine Manhattan gays getting married to each other--talk about an economic boom! If you thought female brides-to-be were spendthrift drama queens, just multiply that by two! Flower companies, photographers, car companies, venues, wedding planners, therapists--the list goes on of the industries that stand to benefit.
Not to mention the boon to divorce lawyers.

Just after Same-Sex marriage was legalized in California - It's been immediately asked to be "intervened by the court". Should it be? After all, isn't that how a democracy works?

If incest laws were created to prevent inbreeding and same sex couples are at no risk of doing so, should same sex marriage laws supersede incest laws?

In my own personal belief I do not think that the marriage of the same sex was ever blessed by God. I am curious what my fellow hubbers response would be if they were asked if same sex marriage was ok in the eyes of God?
