The main stream media is trying to spin this as best they can, but in reality, the activist judges in New Jersey have decided that gay marriage or civil unions will move forward, whether or not the people approve or disapprove of this action.
The legislature in New Jersey were given two choices today, either they approve gay marriages or they approve civil unions. Period.
New Jersey's highest court ruled Wednesday that gay couples are entitled to the same rights as heterosexuals, but that lawmakers must determine whether the state will honor gay marriage or some other form of civil union.
Advocates on both sides of the issue believed the state posed best chance for gay marriage to win approval since Massachusetts became the only state to do so in 2003 because the New Jersey Supreme Court has a history of extending civil rights protections.
Instead, the high court stopped short of fully approving gay marriage and gave lawmakers 180 days to rewrite marriage laws to either include gay couples or create new civil unions.
The people of New Jersey were never given the chance to voice their opinion on this issue. Instead, the activist judges made the decision for the people.
It is activist judges just like this that are telling me how to define marriage that I want to stop.
I will be voting "YES" on November 7th in order to protect the institution of marriage that is defined by God, not by activist judges.
