Posted on 10/21/2013 2:30:57 PM PDT by NKP_Vet
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Monday withdrew legal opposition to gay marriage, making same-sex nuptials the law in the state.
The move makes New Jersey the 14th state in the nation to legalize gay marriage.
On Friday, the state Supreme Court refused to delay a lower-court order for the state to begin recognizing same-sex marriages. On Monday morning, Christie said in a statement that he ordered an appeal dropped.
"Chief Justice Rabner left no ambiguity about the unanimous court's view on the ultimate decision in this matter when he wrote, 'same-sex couples who cannot marry are not treated equally under the law today," Christie said.

But surrendering like a Frenchman is what these RINO's do the best.
Didn’t he also put on the bench a open flaming homosexual not too long ago and was proud of it saying how the judge will rule fairly?
Chris Chistie has JESUS CHRIST to answer to....GOOD LUCK WITH THAT, CHRISTIE!!
why not have us run as Dems and once in power become conservative, it seems to work for the left.
Does he really think the gays in NJ will fill his coffers for this decision? What a maroon.
Christie said homosexuals are not treated fairly, ER OK Christie then neither are polygamists so when will you make that legal?
Darn, we needed another RINO in the primary to split the vote with Jeb and Rubio so a conservative could finally sneak through. Not sure why Chris Crappy decided to withdraw so early.
Bottom line is if same-sex marriage is legal, then why can’t two brothers or two sisters get married? There is no risk of producing an inbred child so that is not a factor. When pressed, gay marriage supporters seem to say that incestuous same-sex marriages should be legal too, because there is no justification against it that can’t also be used against regular same-sex marriage (morality, tradition, etc.).
That will make 15 states.
The good news is that the most liberal states have made their move; the rest are more conservative so the juggernaut of perversion may not go much further.
Today more than one in three Americans lives in a state where Gay Marriage is imposed by judges, legislatures and homosexual voters.
We are destroyed as a nation it is like Pearl Harbor, the War of Northern Aggression and now a plague destroying the lives and First Amendment Rights of more than 100 million Christians.
I’;ve found that when you question the trolls who pretend to be conservative about that question they try and switch the debate to “is that all you care about sex”
Well you pose a good question, why not have polygamy, why have incest laws, hell why not have no age sex law and in the mean time they could also make all drugs legal for the druggies, boy what a great country the USA would be then, SARC
Bottom line is that if they want to have sex then go ahead, if they think they’re married, have it taught in schools, have adoptions so they can use children for their agenda then I will never go along with it no matter what these people will shout.
Manners and etiquette were replaced after the war, carpet baggers and teachers moved down here and made sure of that.
Now we have another war against the left and thus far only the likes of Sarah, Cruz, Lee and Bachmann have fought while the career republicans all sit in their ivory towers, sipping their cognacs laughing at how they get money to run and then ignore the voters.
The first amendment we have seen is in bits, we are told we have to marry or accept homosexuals, well not me , nor my family, they can put out as many lies as they want .
The French marched on Paris in opposition to Gay marriage, last spring. There are photos.
Hundreds of thousands.
WE are more surrendering than the French.
Marriage? Abe Lincoln is purported to have used the example of a dog. How many legs does a dog have? Four. If you call the tail a leg, how many legs does it have? Five. Wrong; calling the tail a leg doesn’t make it one.
Followed by bestiality, necrophilia, pederasty, pedophilia...
There are still states that will move to impose gay marriage on their people and within a few years, the Supreme Court will further impose it on the rest of us. The only way to stop it would be to Amend the Constitution to prohibit gay marriage.
Then you could say, no, I’m talking about two siblings who love each other and want to get married. They don’t have to have sex at all if they don’t want to.
It’s easier to argue against polygamy or underage people. But incestuous same-sex marriage is no different than regular same-sex marriage in terms of the economics of it or age of consent laws. You have to ask them what prejudice do they have that would not let two people who love each other get married if it harms no one else? I would just like to ask it to the ‘rat politicians to get them on tape with their answer.
EXACTLY for every argument used for homosexual sham marriage can be used for any other kind of marriages, sadly liberals can’t look that far into the future.
He is a fat fag.
He had such promise when first elected. Finally, a New Jersey politician with common sense. Guess not.
what was wrong about the NJ court decision is that it had NOTHING to do with “righting” NEW JERSEY law
the plaintiffs complained that FEDERAL LAW does not provide partners in a civil partnership equal status with spouses in a marriage
HOWEVER (a) New Jersey law (it’s civil parnerhsip law) makes clear that NEW JERSDEY makes both states of partners - spouses in marriage and civil partnersship partners - equal under New Jersey law and for and within THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY AND (b) it is NOT the MANDATORY object of NEW JERSEY law to compensate for “deficiencies” in or “correct” for “deficiencies” in FEDERAL LAW.
The asinine argument of the idiots on the New Jersey court is that New Jersey law is MANDATORILY responsible for correcting a deficiency in federal law - it’s not.
The proper place for the plaintiffs and the proper correction for their complaint is NOT in the redefinition of marriage in New Jersey, dictated by judges, but in a simply LEGISLATIVE act by the U.S. Congress that changes federal law to accept on the same basis, in federal law, the parners in any state’s legally established civil partnerships, as any federal law now reserves for spouses in a marriage.
THAT would be “equality under the law” WITHOUT any change in the definition of marriage by ANY STATE. BUT, the agends is NOT “equality under the law” but LEGALLY MANDATED “social change and acceptance” as exemplified by the unnecessary redefinition of marriage.
Well you forgot that Pennsylvania and Illinois will soon have gay marriage and those are big states.
Fag mafia gets to another one.
But the French elected a Marxist government. So the characterization stands.
So did we.
His homo pal Obama showed him The Way.
True. But the French have a century on us.
They are a cancer that must be cut out, irradiated, and thrown into the trash.
There really isn't any good reason to keep them around anymore.
They can have half of California too.
It’s hard to watch, I know. But they really did march on Paris, over and above what we’ve done, and I think we could pick an obviously less brave group with whom to compare, using examples less than 60 years old
OUR NEW MOTTO: LIBERTY & SODOMY
Maybe he's a turd burglar...who knows?
This is not something a normal undiseased mind changes an opinion on lightly or quickly
Was there ever any doubt that Chris would cave?
Now if he and McGreevy start hanging out together...
Come for the sandy beach, stay for the acquired immune disorder!
He’s dropping all the positive positions that got him elected. EXACTLY like Obongo ! (Gee, what a surprise)
Now we will see an increase in lawsuits against Christian owned businesses in NJ. I woudn’t be surprised if Churches are targeted for legal action too
Last I checked, Legislatore ARE the will of the people in a representative government.
That's why I say this vote is against the people's will. Yes, they voted these legislators into office...but on other issues.
As far as IL goes, they tried to pass it and 20 black legislators blocked it. They're still trying but opposition is pretty fierce.
We'll see what happens. My feeling is that they've pretty much captured the far-left states. Now I think they will lose momentum.
The legislature isn't, but PA doesn't have a constitutional ban and their Supreme Court is likely to soon strike down their statutory ban.
And (1) given how fast popular opinion is shifting on the issue, and (2) the fact that they can fail a thousand times but only have to succeed once, do you really think that Illinois isn't going to pass it? I agree with your larger point, that the low hanging fruit is largely gone, but there are still plenty of battle grounds ahead -- Oregon definitely in the near term, and in the not-too-distant term probably Colorado, Wisconsin and Nevada.
Well...one can hope.
The black pastors are mounting a campaign to stop it as is the Catholic church.
You mention public opinion, but I think much of that gay support is weak. The activists are few in number...they are just extremely vocal as communists always are. I've been thinking of the likelihood that at some point there will be one big gay scandal that the media can't ignore and the issue will begin to lose steam.
I think that’s wishful thinking there, my FRiend.
We failed to make a good case to the general public, and now public opinion is rocketing away from us. We won California once, then again but barely, and now there’s no change at all Prop 8 would pass.
We’re losing all but a couple areas of the country. There will be some regions where gay marriage remains below 50%, and where it remains illegal, but I can’t see those being any substantial percentage of the country.
I think in retrospect we’ll look at 2012 as the tipping point, when we started losing elections on this issue. We used to be able to comfort ourselves with the notion that no state had ever voted for it, but that cold comfort is dead now.
Time to pick some fights we can win, like securing religious exemptions written into law. We can’t hold back the tide, but that doesn’t mean we need lash ourselves to the ocean floor.
Again...I don't believe opinion is "rocketing".
With the economy as it is, unemployment high and health care now dominating the headlines I really think the public support for gay marriage is tepid though the MSM as usual would try make us think differently.
You’re entitled to that opinion, but I don’t see any evidence to support it. And all the polls are moving in the wrong direction - we ought to have learned by now that we ignore those at our peril.
Most people are just following the crowd; if the crowd starts to go the other way they will too. The fact that the courts have to be used to put gay marriage into effect is more proof that the public is not leading the charge.
