What New Yorkers Really Think about Same-Sex "Marriage"

www.tfpstudentaction.org

You won't find this type of candid footage on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC or even Fox News, but it shows you what the liberal media would like to hide: New Yorkers do not want the sacred institution of marriage -- ordained by God -- redefined, tampered or destroyed.

If you like the video, please share it with friends and family. We need to create our own media to promote moral values.

Saint John Chrysostom denounces homosexual acts as being contrary to nature. Commenting on the Epistle to the Romans (1: 26-27), he says that the pleasures of sodomy are an unpardonable offense to nature and are doubly destructive, since they threaten the species by deviating the sexual organs away from their primary procreative end and they sow disharmony between men and women, who no …More

Saint John Chrysostom denounces homosexual acts as being contrary to nature. Commenting on the Epistle to the Romans (1: 26-27), he says that the pleasures of sodomy are an unpardonable offense to nature and are doubly destructive, since they threaten the species by deviating the sexual organs away from their primary procreative end and they sow disharmony between men and women, who no longer are inclined by physical desire to live together in peace.
The brilliant Patriarch of Constantinople employs most severe words for the vice we are analyzing. Saint John Chrysostom makes this strong argument: “All passions are dishonorable, for the soul is even more prejudiced and degraded by sin than is the body by disease; but the worst of all passions is lust between men…. The sins against nature are more difficult and less rewarding, since true pleasure is only the one according to nature. But when God abandons a man, everything is turned upside down! Therefore, not only are their passions [of the homosexuals] satanic, but their lives are diabolic….. So I say to you that these are even worse than murderers, and that it would be better to die than to live in such dishonor. A murderer only separates the soul from the body, whereas these destroy the soul inside the body….. There is nothing, absolutely nothing more mad or damaging than this perversity.” (St. John Chrysostom, In Epistulam ad Romanos IV, in J. McNeill, op. cit., pp. 89-90)

Saint Gregory the Great delves deeper into the symbolism of the fire and brimstone that God used to punish the sodomites: “Brimstone calls to mind the foul odors of the flesh, as Sacred Scripture itself confirms when it speaks of the rain of fire and brimstone poured by the Lord upon Sodom. He had decided to punish in it the crimes of the flesh, and the very type of punishment emphasized the shame of that crime, since brimstone exhales stench and fire burns. It was, therefore, just that the sodomites, burning with perverse desires that originated from the foul odor of flesh, should perish at the same time by fire and brimstone so that through this just chastisement they might realize the evil perpetrated under the impulse of a perverse desire.” (St. Gregory the Great, Commento morale a Giobbe, XIV, 23, vol. II, p. 371, Ibid., p. 7)

Saint Peter Damian’s Liber Gomorrhianus [Book of Gomorrha], addressed to Pope Leo IX in the year 1051, is considered the principal work against homosexuality. It reads: “Just as Saint Basil establishes that those who incur sins [against nature] … should be subjected not only to a hard penance but a public one, and Pope Siricius prohibits penitents from entering clerical orders, one can clearly deduce that he who corrupts himself with a man through the ignominious squalor of a filthy union does not deserve to exercise ecclesiastical functions, since those who were formerly given to vices … become unfit to administer the Sacraments.” (St. Peter Damian, op. cit., cols. 174f)

Saint Augustine is categorical in the combat against sodomy and similar vices. The great Bishop of Hippo wrote: “Sins against nature, therefore, like the sin of Sodom, are abominable and deserve punishment whenever and wherever they are committed. If all nations committed them, all alike would be held guilty of the same charge in God’s law, for our Maker did not prescribe that we should use …More

If all nations committed them, all alike would be held guilty of the same charge in God’s law, for our Maker did not prescribe that we should use each other in this way. In fact, the relationship that we ought to have with God is itself violated when our nature, of which He is Author, is desecrated by perverted lust.”
Further on he reiterates: “Your punishments are for sins which men commit against themselves, because, although they sin against You, they do wrong in their own souls and their malice is self-betrayed. They corrupt and pervert their own nature, which You made and for which You shaped the rules, either by making wrong use of the things which You allow, or by becoming inflamed with passion to make unnatural use of things which You do not allow” (Rom. 1:26). (St. Augustine, Confessions, Book III, chap. 8)

Thursday afternoon latest on New York

After going into the late hours last night, the bill has not passed.

The lastest news is that the Republicans, who are the majority in the NY Senate plan to have a closed door session this afternoon and decide whether to table the bill or bring it to a vote. Right now the vote is tied. There will be another session tonght, or tomorrow morning.

If you have any choices about the use of your time today, I can think of no better endeavor than praying for Senators in the great state of New York to stand strong and not cave to the massive political pressure from Governor Cuomo, Mayor Bloomberg, and the homosexual activists to redefine marriage. Pray they would see the truth that the religious exemption compromise is inadequate to protect individual religious liberty. God has moved before, He can do it again!

From Brian Brown of NOM:

Please call and tell these 7 senators to vote no on the same-sex marriage bill.
Stephen Saland (518) 455-2411
Andrew Lanza (518) 455-3215
Mark Grisanti (518) 455-3240
Greg Ball (518) 455-3111
John Flanagan (518) 455-2071
Joseph Addabbo (518) 455-2322(Be careful with this office)
Shirley Huntley (518) 455-3531

And if you have trouble getting through on the direct lines, call the Capitol Switchboard at (518) 455-2800
and ask for these 7 senators.

If you can't call, you can still send a message by email, but given the fact that a vote could come tonight, phone calls are most critical.

Great action.

Interesting that ALL the supporting people interviewed were minorities. Are ALL New Yorkers from Caribbean or African descent? One might prefer to have a more balanced cross-section of the Long Island populus, in order to be more credible. As it is, in this video, the only "Anglo-Americans" were the ones against the Traditional Marriage. This gave an impression that it is a racially conditioned …More

However, having said this, the honking was simply marvellous indeed! That so many folk on Long Island supported Traditional Marriage is just terrific! 🙂 Thanks for sharing! 🧐
