    NJ Star Ledger: In a rare break in the ongoing war between Gov. Chris Christie and Senate Democrats over court appointments, the upper house’s judiciary committee today approved the Republican governor’s latest nominee to the state Supreme Court. Superior Court Judge Faustino Fernandez-Vina faced dozens of sharp-edged questions from Democrats during a two-and-a-half hour hearing in Trenton, but was also praised for his serene demeanor.

It shouldn’t be decided by courts, it shouldn’t be decided by politicians in Trenton. It should be decided by everybody. If the majority of the people of New Jersey want same-sex marriage, I’ll enforce the law.”

“Poll: Should N.J. legalize gay marriage? And how?”

“N.J. legislators inching toward override of Christie’s gay marriage veto” Advocates have been working to convince state lawmakers — including a number of Republicans — that they should cross Gov. Chris Christie and override his veto of a bill (S1) that would legalize same-sex marriage. The state currently allows civil unions, and Christie maintains same-sex marriage should be decided by a voter referendum.

Gov. Chris Christie Torpedoes Future Presidential Bid And Harms Children To Boot | Liberty Counsel

‘Gay’ lawmaker to Christians: ‘We’ll take your children’

    Matt Barber at World Net Daily: Things get more sinister yet. On Wednesday, New Jersey Assemblyman Tim Eustace, who sponsored the bill and is openly homosexual, bombastically compared change therapy to “beating a child” and suggested that the government take children seeking change away from their parents. He told Talk Radio 1210 WPHT, “What this does is prevent things that are harmful to people. If a parent were beating their child on a regular basis we would step in and remove that child from the house. If you pay somebody to beat your child or abuse your child, what’s the difference?”

“Chris Christie’s Legal Position on Gay Marriage Is Pure Nonsense” | Nathaniel Frank at Slate

    Nathaniel Frank at Slate: Christie’s brief defends civil unions in three ways. First, it argues that the state can rationally restrict the label “marriage” to heterosexual unions because it is “preserving” the definition of the word. Second, it contends that it’s actually the feds who are now blocking gay equality by withholding benefits to civil union partners. And third, it claims that the state courts should move very cautiously when contemplating a major change in social institutions—all fine and well except that, as the state itself admits, calling a gay union a marriage isn’t much of a change anymore.
