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.

    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.”

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.”

“The time is now for the New Jersey Legislature to act on gay marriage”

    Steve Goldman of Garden State Equality writes at NewJerseyNewsroom.com: “Our society should be celebrating Louise and Marsha. But because of the civil union law that falls short of marriage equality, they and their children are instead denied equal protection under the law.
    New Jersey has been debating marriage equality for eight long years – far longer than any other issue in our collective memories. This is no rushed debate. For the sake of Louise and Marsha, and for families like theirs all across New Jersey, the time for the Legislature to act is now.”

Plenty of reasons exist for suspecting absentee fraud may play a significant role in tomorrow’s Garden State contests.”
