Thanks New York for Destroying America by Allowing Gay Marriage

Posted By on Mon, Jun 27, 2011 at 11:00 AM

No particular surprise at this point that Pat Robertson wasn't thrilled with New York's vote for marriage equality and that he'd claim that American society was falling down around us. At this point, he's an old guy with a TV show, it's not like he's going to do a lot of reflection on his ideas and their consequences.

But then you have guys like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie who is generally considered a legitimate candidate for president in the future and the sort of person whose ideas are taken at least somewhat seriously, spouting off nonsense about how he makes policy decisions based on what he is and isn't "a fan" of:

I believe marriage should be between one man and one woman. I am not a fan of same-sex marriage. That's my view and that'll be the view of our state, because I wouldn't sign a bill like the one that was in New York.

However, I'm going to say that seeing a stream of Facebook statuses on Saturday night anticipating and then celebrating the vote was one of the more joyous social media moments I can remember. Way to go, New York. This guy knows what's up, and that's the side I'd like to be on. Not Pat Robertson, or Chris Christie, or the Republicans getting ready to punish anyone who supports marriage equality:
