The U.S. Supreme Court dumped the federal Defense of Marriage Act and declined to reinstate a ban on same-sex marriage in California on Wednesday.

And now the Empire State Building has turned the colors of the rainbow in a show of support for Gay Pride Weekend.

It’s amazing that after 9/11, we’ve been taken over by Muslims and gays.

Which makes me envision two freight trains barreling down the track... towards each other.

Last I saw is some arabs want to buy it, that’ll be the end of this. It’ll be green only from now on.

They can mock our values but they will not get away from mocking God. Folks it is just me but have many you notice after Gay Marriage is official now. The temperature shot up high just what in 2 days after passing. Today Death Valley reached it highest ever of 130. I truly believe this is message.

That’s child abuse.

It's fine with Ubama and the Democrats. Encouraged, even.

I spent the last tourist dollar I will ever spend in that city years ago. Between Bloomberg’s insanity and now this, I know I have made the right decision.

Is the Daily Mail part of the LAT/WP syndicate? There nothing about it in the copyright list.

America is self-imploding on liberal “values”.

It is sad, pathetic and a bit scary to see live, in action.

If the Twin Towers were still alive they (each)would have been draped with a pair of testicles in support of gay male marriage. This country is disgusting - at least its leaders are.

Any city that would consider Bloomberg, Weiner and Baldwin for mayor needs to be put under marshal law.

Have you read the “Harbinger” by Jonathan Cahn?

Empire State Building Rejects Request to Honor Mother Teresa; Catholic League Plans Protest
http://abcnews.go.com/Travel/empire-state-building-rejects-request-honor-mother-teresa/story?id=11486871#.UdGp396-lIg
By KIMBERLY BROWN (@thekimberlyb) and SCOTT MAYEROWITZ
Aug. 26, 2010

A Catholic group is rallying its troops after it says the building “stiffed” Mother Teresa, denying a request to light up the landmark in blue and white lights in commemoration of the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s birth.

...Three months after Catholic League officials submitted an application, its leaders say, they were stunned to receive a rejection. No explanation was given to them.

...”Although ESB has a tradition of lightings for the religious holidays of Easter, Eid al-Fitr, Hanukkah, and Christmas, our lighting partnership guidelines — with which all organizations must agree as a condition for submitting an application — state clearly that we do not accommodate requests for religious figures or requests by religions and religious organizations.”

...The Catholic League and its allies called the long-awaited statement less than illuminating. “Malkin is either misinformed or he is lying,” said Donohue, adding that John Cardinal O’Connor’s death was recognized with red and white lighting in 2005.

The death of Pope John Paul II was marked with a dimming of the lights overnight...

To be honest, they do this every year, for the past 6 or 7 at least.

I will never willing visit that filthy city again. Last time there, I was not impressed. Some of the rudest people I've ever met.

Gay Pride month is getting closer to receiving official recognition every day.

Certainly the Lavender robed Justices who decree from the bench “the new normal” have seen fit to make such declarations of “gay freedom” on the eve of the Gay Pride Parades twice now (Lawrence v. Texas and now with the striking down of DOMA and invalidating the will of California voters by tossing the case out and refusing to enforce the vacation of the appeals’ court ruling).

Maybe homosexual academics want to have something to prance behind other than the riots over the closing of a mob run speakeasy.

First I heard about it. And yes, I’m none too fond of NYC too.
