New Jersey's Highest Court Clears Way for Gay Marriages to Begin Monday
WNBC-TV / The Associated Press ^ | October 18, 2013 | Geoff Mulvihill

Same-sex marriages will begin within days in New Jersey after the state's highest court ruled unanimously Friday to uphold a lower-court order that gay weddings must start Monday and to deny a delay that was sought by Gov. Chris Christie's administration.

"The state has advanced a number of arguments, but none of them overcome this reality: Same-sex couples who cannot marry are not treated equally under the law today," the court said in an opinion by Chief Justice Stuart Rabner. "The harm to them is real, not abstract or speculative."(continued)

I had hoped that when other states approved homosexual marriage that they all would have moved there by now. Oh, well...

HOMOSEXUAL, because there’s nothing GAY about it.

It’s a willful and outrageous misconstrual of the 14th amendment equal protection clause.

In Iowa they threw out the entire state supreme court for doing this. Don’t know if NJ has retention votes for their supreme court, but if so, the Republican’s have an issue for the next election.

Not that the fools would actually use something obvious like that...

Chief Justice Stuart Rabner can’t “marry” his gerbil and the harm to him is real, not abstract or speculative.

That is correct. That court is filthy dirty, corrupt to the core, and brazenly so. Who could forget the Torricelli fiasco?

Democrats could murder thousands of children by strangulation, at their birthday parties, and Republicans wouldn't be smart enough to use it.

NJ onboard with riding the LIEberal Express train to hades.
More than just the Atlantic Chitty Boardwalk will go up in flames eventually.

This is very interesting to see the evolution of the logic.

Some years ago, New Jersey was sued over not allowing homosexual marriage. At that time, the state Supreme Court ruled that it was discriminatory not to provide legal status for same-sex couples. However, at that time, they said that it was the place of the legislature to define the legal status given to same-sex unions.

At that time, the New Jersey legislature set up civil unions in that state.

Now, here we are years later, and the state Supreme Court contradicts the previous ruling, that it was up to the legislature to set up a legal status for same-sex couples. Now the Supreme Court has decided that they must allow homosexual marriage, that the previous ruling that it is up to the legislative process wasn’t correct.

I have concluded that legal processes and standards and such do not apply when liberals are pushing liberal causes such as homosexual marriage or abortion or global warming. The liberals evade legislation, go for liberal judges to issue rulings, or go to the agencies such as the EPA, in the case of global warming, to issue their decrees and advance the liberal cause.

The NJ legislature did actually pass homo marriage and Gov. Christie vetoed it. Not sure about the legality of things, but the court is over-riding Christie’s veto, apparently. I don’t know if that makes it legal or not, but it’s pretty friggin’ disgusting either way. Just wanted to point out the particulars there.

NJ will quickly become like Calif, NY, and Mass. - only ones who live there voluntarily will be the homosexuals, feminazis, and the parasites.

Not anymore, SCOTUS has ruled on the issue and Kennedy decided Gay Marriage is the law of the land. Pretty much, every state is going to have to at least recognize them, even if it is illegal in that state.

Always looking for the good in something. Here’s how faggot “marriage” could help American Society.

Since packers are superdooper-promiscuous, they will all cheat on their “wives” and subsequently gridlock the divorce courts nationwide.

It might get so bad that normal people in strained relationships could decide to just stay married....”for the children”.

There are plenty of true conservatives in South Jersey, my sister-in-law being one and she has many like minded friends. Sadly the state is dominated by the north. They live there voluntarily, not because of the politics of the general population but because they have a nice area and want to be close to extended family. Moving to a deep red state isn’t a realistic option for conservatives stuck in blue territory (like me here in Pa).
