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.
