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.

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.

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.

Conservatives...**** you and **** your bible. I don't give a **** about your "eternal paradise." I'd rather burn for an eternity in hell than live a lie under the thumbs of hateful, bigots like you. Drop dead, and tell your "god" when you see him, that both of you can kiss my flaming ****** ass.

I wonder if Sen. McDonald feels the same way now that his voters have taken his job and shoved ... him out. It appears his same-sex marriage supporters may abandon his third-party run to support his lesbian Democratic challenger in November.

McDonald could have voted his conscience and made a more modest rebuttal of the expected criticism. His fighting words led to the fight of his political life.
