  1. Let us not forget that when we were in Egypt about 3,000 years ago, Egypt was the most powerful country in the world and Egypt was also the wealthiest country in the entire world. Where is Egypt today?? They used to be the USA of today.
    We need to sincerely and seriously daven to the Almighty that this entire same gender story get completely reversed to the way it was 50 years ago.
    Otherwise, Hashem is going to pull us out of here in a real hurry the same way Lot was quickly pulled out.
    “Do not look behind you.” Just move forward and get on to that plane towards the Bais HaMikdash.
    I truly want to wish everyone lots of good health and an easy winter.

  2. It’s a mess. Everyone in NY voted for Zeldin, as if he would save mortality, when his own candidate for lieutenant government is part of this.
    We can’t expect any party to stand up for morality anymore

  3. Just because she’ married to someone of the same, doesn’t mean she believes it should be imposed on the country by legislators. Conservatives believe in the us constitution which says it belongs at the state level, and preferably the ballot box.

    • “Conservatives believe.. it belongs at the state level”
      That itself shows you how low things have fallen. In the 1990s, the whole senate voted, without dissent, Democrat and Republicans, for Defense of Marriage Act. And it was signed by Bill Clinton
      Now we’re at the point where the heros of conservatives movement pick running mates who are open lgbt, and the best we can hope for is “belongs at the state level.”
      The Republicans of today are so much worse than the Democrats were 15 to 20 years ago.
      The Democrats today are so much worse, so yeah, we vote Republican as the lesser of 2 evils. But let’s not fool ourselves into thinking that they share our values, or even care about them.

  4. Funny to cite “millennia-old views” as justification for anything. Humans were pretty backward thousands of years ago.

    LGBTQ+ people aren’t hurting anyone. Get over it.
