New Jersey to Homosexuals: No thanks

Posted by Mats on 08/01/2010

As Ace (or some other blogger in there) says, I think it’s time people realize that it is not only fundamentalist christians who oppose homosexual “marriage”.

From Ace of Spades

The state Senate rejected a same-sex marriage bill today, a major victory for opponents who contend the measure would infringe on religious freedom and is not needed because the state already permits civil unions.The 20-14 vote defeating the measure followed an hour and a half of public debate inside the packed Senate chamber. The nearly thousand supporters and opponents of the bill held rallies on the Statehouse steps.

Statewide polls have shown New Jersey residents closely divided on same-sex marriage, and leading up to today’s vote, indicators showed a majority of the senators opposing the measure.

DrewM comments:

When will these hateful people, like their Christianist neighbors in NY just stop standing in the way of progress?

BTW-noted opponent of same sex marriage Barack Obama was unavailable for comment.
