    N.Y. top court rules against gay marriage

    By MARK JOHNSON, Associated Press Writer 8 minutes ago

    ALBANY, N.Y. - New York's highest court ruled Thursday that gay marriage is not allowed under state law, rejecting arguments by same-sex couples who said the law violates their constitutional rights.

    The Court of Appeals, in a 4-2 decision, said New York's marriage law is constitutional and clearly limits marriage to between a man and a woman.

    Any change in the law would have to come from the state Legislature, Judge Robert Smith said.

    I thank God that they did what is right.

    Even scarier - the add at the bottom of this page was about voting on gay marriage - technology is quick.

    Wow! Two good rulings by the much despised by conservatives court system - even a New York court.
