Gay marriage vote in New York State.

Gov. David A. Paterson said in an interview Sunday night that he would make sure that the State Senate votes on same sex-marriage legislation before it breaks for the summer, hours after he and his administration had refused to commit to forcing a vote on the issue.

“If the senators do not cooperate with this order, I will convene a special session every day until they do,” the governor said at the news conference. “That includes Saturdays and Sundays. That includes July 4. There will be no excuses.”

The last day of the Legislature’s regular session is Monday. The governor may call lawmakers back for a special session, and he sets their agenda, but they are not compelled to bring any of the legislation to a vote.

So is this good or not?  In theory yes, but after the recent bullshit in Albany, what with the recent coup and all (did i just type that statement?),  I’m not sure.  I’m worried that there are not enough votes to pass it, and the last thing we need is another state legislature holding up bans on same sex marriage.  But then again, maybe it will spark the controversies and outrage as prop 8 did and people might start letting their voices be heard.  Who knows?

We’ll see.

    I’m hoping someone from Jay’s ministry, someone who knows Jays position, or possibly even Jay himself would answer my following question, as I do not know where else to post.

    I know that Jay is gay affirming, but how does he handle issues of sexual immorality/marriage? If homosexuality is not a sin, does he still affirm that homosexual intimacy outside of marriage is a sin? If yes, then does he actively teach, preach and discipline his church members accordingly? Does he require they obstain from sexual acts until they are married? Or does he condone and turn a blind eye to sex outside of the marriage covenant? thank you for your help.
