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.

I hope that Dumb-a$$ David Tyree is reading this....along with those who feel that gays and lesbians shouldnt marry - WAKE UP people - the world has evolved and is starting to show it's acceptance of gay marriage.

Like it or not - it's coming to a town near you! I hope this makes the Westboro Baptist "church" implode.

I don't care what people do behind their doors and in public regarding who they choose to be with whether it is based on gender or color or whatever, so it is refreshing to hear someone in a position like his stand up to the naysayers.

Senator McDonald, I beg you to move to Wisconsin. We need thoughtful politicians like you to counteract the extreme partisanship we're suffering with here.

Thank You Roy McDonald.

I wish we all would do what is the right thing to do...
It's not hard to figure out what the right thing is...
It's so obvious to everyone when you do something because it's the right thing to do...
There are no questions...
I think a real sincerity is the key.
No one will question you if you are sincere in decisions...
Thanks for your sincerity.
Roy McDonald.

Omg the first paragraph made me so happy then i read more and it was even better! Blue collar, evolving, I thought i was in love! Employed blue collar workers that are stuck to a schedule! Why arent there more politicians like him? Didn't they witness their parents working hard growing up? That is painful. ...... Still has nothing to do with working though... just gay marriage...
