Shock Jocks’ Homosexual Inferences Not Defamatory, Judge Rules

    NJ Law Journal (Law.com): “U.S. District Judge Joel Pisano predicted the state Supreme Court, which insisted on equal protection for same-sex couples in 2006, would be unlikely to ‘legitimize discrimination against gays and lesbians’ by treating a homosexual reference as a slur. The ruling, in Murphy v. Millenium Radio Group, 08-cv-1743, is a loss for freelance photographer Peter Murphy, who complained that Craig Carton and Ray Rossi, hosts of the “Jersey Guys” show on WKXW 101.5 FM, ‘derogatorily inferred’ he was a homosexual during a 45-minute segment.”

N.J. lawmakers oppose same-sex “marriage”

Three NJ lawmakers want in on same-sex “marriage” suit

    On Top Magazine (“gay advocacy website”): “Three Republican lawmakers filed a motion to intervene Monday to defend against a New Jersey lawsuit to win gay marriage. Senators Gerald Cardinale and Anthony R. Bucco, along with Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll, are being represented by the Christian-based group Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) . . . ‘There’s more to marriage than just any two people in a committed relationship,’ ADF Senior Legal Counsel [Austin R. Nimocks] said in a statement. ‘At this time in history, we should be strengthening marriage, not tearing it down. Instead, activists are seeking to redefine marriage for all New Jersey citizens by resurrecting an already-resolved, three-year-old lawsuit with the goal of forcing legislators to redefine marriage against their will.’”

NJ: Lambda Legal to file same-sex “marriage” petition with Supreme Court Thursday

    NJ.com, The Auditor: “The Auditor is told Lambda Legal on Thursday will file a petition with the Supreme Court to establish the right to gay marriage. ‘We’ve lived the agony of defeat,’ said Steve Goldstein, head of Garden State Equality. ‘Now it’s time for the thrill of victory.’ The defeat came in January when the Senate rejected a bill to establish same-sex marriage. Gay rights advocates contend the state’s civil union law falls short of the court’s 2006 order for lawmakers to provide equal rights for gays seeking to marry.”

NJ: On same-sex “marriage,” the people have spoken

    Len Deo, founder and president of the New Jersey Family Policy Council, writing in the Times of Trenton: “Advocates for same-sex marriage — having failed to convince the people’s elected representatives and having dismissed out of hand the right of the people to decide the issue at the ballot box — now say they will take their cause back to the courts. Why? Because, they say, the people are not to be trusted. Indeed, some of the senators who held the minority view on same-sex marriage, in rejecting calls for a ballot referendum, actually said the issue absolutely cannot be left to ‘the people.’”

NJ: Preacher’s toe touches school lawn, he gets arrested

NYT: “Children Speak for Same-Sex Marriage”

    NY Times: “While opponents of same-sex marriage worry that schools will teach that gay and straight relationships are equal, many supporters focus on a different, but still child-centered, issue: What about the children now being raised in families headed by gay men and lesbians? How does the lack of marriage benefits for their parents affect them? . . . ‘The real question is whether same-sex relationships benefit children to the same extent that living with a married mother and father does, and we believe they do not,’ said Peter S. Sprigg, senior fellow for policy studies at the Family Research Council, the conservative Christian organization. ‘Children do best when raised by their own biological mother and father who are committed to one another in a lifelong marriage.’”

NJ: “Pen palimony”

    The NJ Law Journal (subscription only): “The lame-duck session of the Legislature has passed S. 2091 , which amends the statute of frauds to require that an agreement by one party to a ‘non-marital personal relationship’ to provide support or other consideration to the other party during or after the relationship is enforceable only if made in writing after both parties are advised by counsel.” Apparently, it is on its way to the governor.

NJ: State teacher’s union opposes DOE plan for federal money

“The Republican Who Might Bring Gay Marriage to Jersey”

    Huffington Post: “Currently, there are five Democratic Senators voting no. That means at least three Republicans are needed to pass. Right now, there is only one — which is still one more than the New York State Senate had. . . . Bill Baroni . . . one of the brightest Republican stars on the state horizon . . . Each of these five Republicans is a potential ‘yes’ vote. They are: Christopher ‘Kip’ Bateman of Somerset County, Sean Kean and Jennifer Beck of Monmouth County, Andrew Ciesla of Ocean County and Tom Kean Jr. of Union County.”

    PolitickerNJ: “Five Republican senators today said that it’s unlikely that a bill redefining marriage can pass the Senate and asked their Democratic colleagues to join them in a bipartisan effort to strengthen New Jersey’s civil union law. The five said that while they can’t support the Freedom of Religion and Equality in Civil Marriage Act (S-1967), they will work to ensure that New Jersey civil union law is enforced and provides all rights and benefits that legislators intended.”

U.S. Senator places hold on bill over Brazilian custody battle

NJ same-sex “marriage” battle is likely over

    NorthJersey.com: “Its chances in the full chamber were so dim that two days later the chief sponsors of the bill withdrew it, before a scheduled vote could take place. There are 40 senators. To pass, a bill needs 21 affirmative votes. A head count last week showed 13 senators publicly supporting same-sex marriage, including just one Republican, with 18 senators definitely opposed. The remaining nine said they were either undecided or unwilling to state their positions.”

They won’t support it. In every state where same-sex marriage has been put to a vote of the people, the people have said ‘No.’ In fact, only a minority of Americans wants to redefine marriage, according to a CBS News/NY Times Poll conducted this past summer and reported on by both organizations. And support is falling, down almost 10 percent this year.”
