Homosexual “marriage” has gained support in New York Senate, is within one vote of passage

For weeks following the New York Times’ remarkable May 19 article on Conservative Party chief Michael Long (discussed here), the paper was silent on the push for homosexual “marriage” in New York State, and I took this to mean that they had given up the fight, based on Long’s threat to exclude from the Conservative Party line any Republican senator who voted for the bill. But as reported in today’s Times there has been a shift in the State Senate, with some Democratic and Republican senators who had previously opposed the law now saying they support it. As a result, the Senate is now divided 31 to 31 on the issue, just one vote short of passage, and the bill may come up for a vote on Friday.
