Republican Senator: 'F**k It,' Gays Should Marry

6/17/2011 11:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Republican New York State Senator Roy McDonald has SHATTERED party lines in support of gay marriage -- telling reporters, "F**k it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing."

The battle rages on in New York to legalize gay marriage -- but McDonald threw his hat in the ring earlier this week ... with the greatest statement of all time, claiming, "You get to the point where you evolve in your life where everything isn't black and white, good and bad, and you try to do the right thing."

"You might not like that. You might be very cynical about that. Well, f**k it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing."

"I'm tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background. I'm trying to do the right thing, and that's where I'm going with this."

With McDonald's support, the gay marriage bill is only ONE vote shy of being made into law -- which would make New York the sixth state to legalize gay marriage.

Good for him!!! His constituents should be proud to have a man like him representing them. It's refreshing to see someone who votes their own convictions and not the party line.

Mr. Clean Mr. Clean

Yes! "F*** it, do the right thing" Words to live by!

The more America continues to turn away from God and his teachings; we will continue in a downward spiral. We are slowly elimintating God from our country, and look at how we are declining as a nation.

Horrible of him to give up on his morals. He lost himself to being pushed around and bullied into a decision he is clearly not satisfied in making.

If same-sex marriage should be allowed, then it is only fair that human-animal marriage be allowed, etc. If someone is attracted to horses, hell, they should be allowed to marry them/have sex with them. Polygamists should immediately have a right to marry. HELL, let's marry our brothers and sisters, parents, and f*cking have at it! Lower the age to have sex, etc. Let all who "love" each other marry. ANARCHY, baby! Let's have it!

I think it is disgusting to hear this kind of language in today's progressive society. Using words such as "jaybird", "daisyboy", "chimney", "colin" and "ginger" should be out of bounds. It is disgraceful that anybody would even consider using terms such as "bum buzzard", "trunk monkey", "backdoor butler", "dirt farmer" or even "chutney farmer". More subtle terminology such as "aidanus", "hommus", "magoo", "dhel", "diesel fuel" and "marma man" should also be off limits. Needless to say, there is absolutely no place for terms like "utbc", "fartpuncher", "clockwork orange", "spydurgot", "donut puncher", "proctonaut" or "662". There is absoloutely no room whatsoever for using language like "chocolate starfish trooper" and it should always be viewed as wholly inappropriate.

We do not need another state offering gay marriage! Marriage is between a man and a woman! I have nothing against gay people but they should enter into some kind of civil union. Not Marriage! This guy is a jackass! All NY wants is the $$$!

While the Bible does address homosexuality, it does not explicitly mention gay marriage/same-sex marriage. It is clear, however, that the Bible condemns homosexuality as an immoral and unnatural sin. Leviticus 18:22 identifies homosexual sex as an abomination, a detestable sin. Romans 1:26-27 declares homosexual desires and actions to be shameful, unnatural, lustful, and indecent. First Corinthians 6:9 states that homosexuals are unrighteous and will not inherit the kingdom of God. Since both homosexual desires and actions are condemned in the Bible, it is clear that homosexuals “marrying” is not God’s will, and would be, in fact, sinful.

PEOPLE, LISTEN UP: The rectum was not created for objects to be jammed up them (lose their elasticity, thus sh*t seeps out at any given time, hemorroids form, diseases attach). It's just not healthy or sane. The penis was created to fit into the woman's vagina, thus procreation occurs. Get your craniums screwed on correctly. Can't argue the facts.

You go Roy! Who knew Republicans had morals and minds of their own? Takes a lot of guts to stand up for what you think and what IS right!

Just so I'm clear, according to the church (and I'm basing this on their actions in dealing with accused priests and various other church and Vatican officials) two consenting adults in a homosexual relationship is an act born in the fiery depths of damnation, but pedophilia and rape are just forgivable mistakes.
Yeah, I think I'll look somewhere else for moral guidance.

Wow!
@Marcus
I sure hope your not older that 15, otherwise you're embarrassing yourself.
If you look at the Yes/No vote counter on this page you'll see that (at this moment, anyway) it shows an 87% approval rate for the senators actions.
Your fundamentalist Christian values are not shared by everyone. Those are Christian values.
Do you believe everything you read?
You seem to accept the word of the bible as proof of itself. By that logic everything you read must be a fact.
If you don't like the idea of same-sex marriage, then don't marry a man. Otherwise, it's none of your business what other people do in their private relationships or the name they choose to give those relationships.
Time to grow up.
You seem to think your religious beliefs and your interpretation of the bible should rule the lives of everyone.
Hmm, why does that belief system sound familiar...oh yeah! That's what al-Quaeda believes.
...and by the way, not everyone takes the word of the bible literally. Only those who choose not to think for themselves.
And spamming "Yes on prop 8" is just childish.

Also @Marcus,
Your argument that in allowing same-sex marriage would open the doors to people being able to marry anything (children,animals, inanimate objects), don't be stupid.
I've heard that argument before. It seems to be a common "weapon" among the unthinking.
Of course not. Marriage, or any legal union of two people, is of consenting adult human beings.
Seriously, how are you able to breath and walk at the same time without getting confused?

@ Prentice First of all sit down with your dates, it don't when it was changed it's still a fact that the word God is in the Pledge and on the money and you have to raise your hand on a Bible in court. It don't matter if it started last yr , you still got to do it. And secoundly, I was responding to those people who kept saying that gay people marrying is not going to redefine marriage b/c marriage has always been redefying. That's who I was commenting too, that one thing still has not change a man and woman making a baby, I wasn't talking about people getting marriend and having a child. I was talking about no matter what you all say it still takes a penis and vagina to make a baby. All those people and their can't 2 people who love each other get married is not going to give penis + penis and vagina + vagina a baby unless they adopt, or get a donor.

@ EvenKeel actually that Marcus person is not totally off with his some what out there argument. B/c as I said on channel 7 there was a 20/20 or dateline I can't remember show about a group of brothers and sisters in Virginia who want's the right to marry each other and are upset that their families have made them outcast and one couple was really upset b/c none of their family them having the same family and all didn't show up to their version of a commitment cermony. So none of you gay or straight knows how this will turn out if all 50 states say yes. Then more loving people will want their right for this and that. After this, all children books should be changed, change Cinderella to her marrying her Princess. Changed everything for love that is. For you people who say this isn't going to changed anything is bull****, b/c fricking gay people perform on the trains so sexually and you can't say nothing to them b/c it's bigotted or whatever. But let it be a straight couple grinding on each other in public , the cops would be intervening. I took my niece to toysrus in Times Square and there were a group of man looking lesbians that was in the candyland section of toysrus, i didn't know they were there b/c hell if I did I wouldn't of went in that section, and the one was kissing her girl up while the other one was pulling on the other one nipple ring. The cashier was upset but what could she do say something and get either jumped, or fired for it. I should of figured something was wrong b/c when I entered the section, this man rushed out with his daughter and bumped into us, while cursing about people having no respect for kids. I just thought his daughter was touching too many candy or something. If my niece wasn't busy asking me to take her on the ferris wheel she would of seen it. And I rushed her out and made up a lie telling her we can't buy any candy b/c their fixing up the store. Was I suppose to take my then 4 yr niece and say that girl with her hand pulling on that girl nipple really loves that other girl. Please , freking regular people and I said regular people don't even carry on like that in public. On the freking Q train this two men was grabbing on each other penis. Kids around and everything. Now if you say something you're a bigot.
