God gives gay marriage a "thumbs up"...

256px-yesu_christina.jpg Newsday:

For the first time in state history, a bill legalizing gay marriage was debated publicly in one of the houses of the State Legislature yesterday.

The measure, introduced at the behest of Gov. Eliot Spitzer, was adopted by the Assembly, 85-61. But the bill was expected to die in the Senate, where it wasn't even scheduled for a floor debate. [..]

Assemb. Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn), an Orthodox Jew, replied by suggesting incestuous couples be recognized along with those of the same sex. "There are certain things that do not change for me unless God sends a message to me," he said.

Lawmakers laughed minutes later when they heard thunder from a passing storm.

There you have it, Dobson, et al., God has spoken.
