As I blogged about HERE, last week New Jersey judge Mary Jacobson ruled that same-sex couples must be allowed to wed, saying, “[Now] that the federal government recognizes gay marriages, not doing so in New Jersey would violate the state constitution."
Then Governor Chris Christie—vociferously anti-marriage equality—stomped his hoof and appealed the judge’s ruling. Acting State Attorney General John Hoffman also requested a stay which would prevent same-sex couples from marrying "until the matter can be settled." Now, Lambda legal is in the fight:
"We're going to do everything we can to make sure same-sex couples can begin making plans to marry starting on the date set by the court - Oct 21st. We will file our opposition on Friday and we'll be making the case that we are likely to win and any delay in allowing same-sex couples to marry is too great a hardship to allow a stay."
It’s on in Jersey and I cannot wait to see Christie’s cream0-filled head explode when he loses; and then gleefully snort when he runs for the White House and tries to explain why he’s so anti-equality.
