Gov. Chris Christie announced today that he was dropping the fight against same-sex marriage in New Jersey by withdrawing his his appeal of a major case that was being heard by the state Supreme Court.

Across the state, gay couples have been getting married today for the first time in New Jersey after the Supreme Court refused on Friday to delay the first weddings while it heard Christie's appeal of a lower-court ruling that legalized gay marriage last month.

Christie said the court, in rejecting his plea for a stay, had made strong statements that settled the larger case.

The Courts allowed widespread abortion and are responsible for the killing of forty million human lives. Now the Courts have imposed the decadence of gay marriage and have acquiesced to the vile molestation of young boys. Why would any decent person wish to sit on a jury, take an oath and pretend to respect some slimy judge?

I hope lots of conservatives either stay home or leave their ballots for governor blank on November 5th. Let Christie get reelected with the democrats and the moderates that he loves so much.

I don’t think you have to worry about that.

ISAIAH 1:4
Woe to the sinful nation, a people whose guilt is great, a brood of evildoers, children given to corruption! They have forsaken the Lord; they have spurned the Holy One of Israel and turned their backs on him.

Over the weekend I had the incomparable pleasure of sitting in a banquet room with 250 dedicated pro-lifers with our pro-life Governor present and speaking to the Florida Right-To-Life Leaders forum. Go Florida, time to stop the evil and it begins with grassroots efforts.

Went to an auction here in Western PA yesterday. The auctioneer, for some reason, kept making cracks about the NJ gay marriage ruling. I kept expecting the Politically Correct Police to come and arrest him at any moment.

Why is it that the most Catholic states also tend to be the most pro-sodomite states? Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey.

Tells me all I need to know about this sect.

If a couple of people want to throw a party to let everyone else know that they enjoy unnatural sex with each other...that’s their business. But it isn’t ‘marriage’. And it never will be.

However, if the state wants to encourage the mockery of a sacrament that is considered holy by a wide range of religions, then this lack of further action by Christie is the next step in a greater problem: the discouragement of religious freedom/practices by the state. It is only a matter of time until a Catholic priest is sued for refusing to participate in this mockery.

The establishment used to count on all of us always considering the republican as being “the lesser of two evils.”

I think those days are over.

Any government that regards two homo pervs as being the identical of a man-and-wife is a government I place no legitimacy in.

Anybody who thinks this guy would make a good president, has rocks for brains. He’s not presidential material.

Paul and Rubio have already bowed to the elites.

If we don’t elect Cruz, America is over. Nobody else seems to have the same regard for our country and her people.

The Republican Party can use the resentment of religious elements over persecution of those who oppose gay marriage that will result from this to get them to vote Republican with some sort of “conscience clauses”.

The GOP does not reverse anything the liberals establish by judicial or legislative means from new government programs to abortion and gay marriage.

They exploit emotions with promises of amendment and modification of what the liberal advance.
