NY House passes same-sex marriage bill

By WKTV News

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York's Democrat-led Assembly has passed a bill to legalize gay marriage and a critical vote by the state
Senate could take place this week if that chamber's Republican
majority brings the measure to the floor.
Assemblyman Charles Lavine of Long Island said Wednesday he
believes his chamber's approval of gay marriage means that
somewhere America's founding fathers "have smiles on their
faces."
But Assemblyman Dov Hikind of Brooklyn said gay marriage is
wrong in the eyes of God.
Gay marriage is legal in Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New
Hampshire, Vermont and Washington, D.C. Democratic Gov. Andrew
Cuomo has shepherded the bill in New York.
