Way to go New York!

Last night, New York changed its marriage law so that lesbian and gay couples can legally marry and divorce. The bill, already signed takes effect at the end of July. The law explicitly permits religious institutions to limit their function as agents of the State so that for instance, Roman Catholic parishes cannot be required to host or perform a "gay marriage."

State by State, inch by inch, love progresses. Way to go New York!

Three cheers for New York!! I was SO surprised when I read this headline, because of the sheer size of New York...Wow. It's nice to see we are leaving archaic times in the past where they belong.
