    On Meet the Press, Gov. Christie said, "“I believe marriage should be between one man and one woman. I wouldn’t sign a bill like the one that was in New York.”

    Too bad. A few years ago, it looked like New Jersey might get there before New York. Now it seems unlikely to happen there any time soon.

    Never say never...money speaks louder, as shown in New York.icon_lol.gif

    Oh, and when New York is shown to create more jobs from having gay marriage, he might think twice.

    Christie is an idiot. Even putting his obvious prejudices against gay people aside, he's causing his state to lose millions in tax dollars related to gay marriage. Not to mention the businesses that could be flourishing due to same sex marriage.

    It's a mistake to believe that Christie is "anti-gay" because he said this. He believes in civil unions with the full benefits enjoyed by married couples. While I disagree with this, people who favor civil unions over marriage are simply invoking different definitions and believe that they are two different types of unions. He's making a statement like this to pander to those who are against gay marriage.

    I know what you're saying, but honestly I'm a little sick of all this political pandering. Civil unions or not, what he's saying is we don't deserve the same rights as straight people. And that is not equality. It's like telling black people they can't drink from the same water fountains as whites, but we'll let you use the hose beside the steps.

    Why do people in our country have such an immense difficulty separating personal beliefs with legislative ethics? Aren't our politicians supposed to at least TRY to separate personal views with his or her decision-making in order to make more objective decisions? *Sigh* American politicians disappointment on a daily basis.

    Hmm, is pandering some kind of accepted virtue?

    I'm a Democrat and it is not okay for Obama to hold that view even for the sake of pandering to voters, and so there is no way I am going to give a pass to anyone else on this issue.

    I agree with him. But my definition of one man ends at the point where the airline demands that you purchase two seats. So I guess Christie is a polygamist and should refrain from throwing stones eh. icon_wink.gif

    As A Gold Card Homosexual; the real bona fide thing, and not an impostor. I too 100% support this. Marriage is for heterosexuals; Albeit one our half brothers the bisexuals have access too with deep embedded roots in religion.

    Since I am neither straight, bi or religus, I want nothing to do with anything with marriage in it; Civil Unions we can make our own, and thats a good thing, and it will prevent so much opposition, and thats a good thing, because people have a right to support that marriage is a union between one man, and one women, and this does not make them homophobes either.

    Well that's your prerogative, but it would be nice if we had the option.

    So is Christie making any effort to push for civil unions in New Jersey, in lieu of marriage? Please reply...

    You were okay with Obama doing the same thing because he has a "D" in front of his name.

    No I'm not "okay" with pandering but it is what it is. It's politics.
