Beam me up, Scotty

One-Man One-Woman anti-gay  crowd

Ok, I know my Beam me up, Scotty title is a bit disrespectful, but looking at this photo of of misguided, hate-the-gays-in-the-name-of-a-loving-god people cracked me up (hey-it's better than seething). They kind of remind me of all my goofball Trekkie friends from my college years. 

But the reason I am  posting this is to report on some good news. We are not there yet, but we are inching ever so close to the magic number in New York. Just 2 votes, that's all we need and maybe, just maybe, New York will become the sixth state to legalize same-sex marriage.  And then .... these people pictured above, really will want to be beamed up, and I will be there to wish them all a fond farewell and good riddance.

Did you see the news that Governor Cuomo has introduced his marriage equality bill to the Senate?

Senator Jim Alesi, who officially pledged his support earlier, is predicting that the bill will actually pass with 35 votes.
