    “If I take the Catholic out of me, which is hard to do, then absolutely they should have these rights,” Grisanti said.

    Has this man ever heard of the Establishment Clause?

  2. Francis says

    If this does pass, great, but the fact that we continue to see these politicians putting their personal beliefs ahead of legality is sickening. Do they know why they are in office? Jesus isn’t the reason.

    Don’t make any more changes to please Greg Ball. He’s not going to vote for the bill under any circumstances.

  4. Rowan says

    Use your head New Yorkers and don’t waste your energy on this slime ball-geddit?

    At least you know where you stand with Diaz. Ball is the worse kind of GOP who is smiling in your face saying he loves you but then wants to make sure that NO ONE can actually marry you, anywhere if they simply say they believe in spaceships, men walking over water or elephants as gods.

    What a jackass.

    I think this guy is a lost cause. Can you really ever appeal to someone who uses the phrase, “indoctrination of children”?

    I wish he’d said that in the second interview. That interviewer was brilliant and didn’t let him say anything without explaining what he meant. Who is she?

  6. Russell says

    A person of normal intelligence would have to agree that “representative government” is inconsistent with “inflicting my personal beliefs” on those represented. Why, then, would an elected official stand up in public and mention the possibility that he would abuse his elected position to inflict his personal beliefs on the public? Is he stupid? No. He has been so thoroughly indoctrinated as a child that he doesn’t realize what he’s really saying.

    I knew those religious exemptions were just a bluff for Ball… jackasses like him love moving the goalposts.

  8. vernon says

    Why the hell are they still courting Sen. Ball?? Let that double-talking cretin be. Waste of time and air space.

  9. Paul says

    why is this man an elected official if he puts his own personal religious beliefs above something he thinks is right for his constituents ? He thinks it should be law (which is his job…ie the law) Can you believe these people say this out loud ? Does he not know how strange that sounds ? If he struggles with his job because of his religion then he should resign and give the job to someone impartial that can do the job properly.

    Gay marriage is for equal CIVIL rights, not acceptance within “religion.” When archbishops step in with their religious view point on secular issues, they overstep the line.
