New Jersey Gay Marriage Ruling - My9 New Jersey

New Jersey Gay Marriage Ruling

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Last week a Superior Court Judge ruled on gay marriage in New Jersey which would allow same sex couples to wed effective October 21, 2013. While many New Jersey Democrats like Barbara Buono and Cory Booker are in favor of gay marriage, Governor Chris Christie is not so much.

Christie commented saying that when the legislature passed gay marriage in the past he vetoed it and he will leave it up for the people to decide on the ballot. Last week’s decision is likely to be appealed to the Supreme Court where they will make a constitutional determination.

Len Deo with the New Jersey Family Policy Council helped to put this ruling into context. “It’s just unbelievable that a single judge would make such a determination and implement same sex marriage on the people of New Jersey. We’re very concerned very upset by the decision and we hope the Governor will go ahead and appeal this decision to the higher courts.” He said.

Deo feels like this judge really jumped the gun. “He totally took it away from the people. I think a lot of people are getting sick and tired of the judges, just ya know, ruling for them. We got to let the republic and democracy take its course.” He said.
