N.J. Gov. Christie drops challenge to same-sex marriage

October 21, 2013

ASBURY PARK, N.J. — Hours after same-sex couples lined up Monday across the state to marry, Gov. Chris Christie dropped his administration’s efforts to end gay marriage.

Christie and his Acting Attorney General John Hoffman had filed an appeal to the State Supreme Court after a lower court ruled that same-sex couples could begin to get married in New Jersey at midnight Monday, but Christie withdrew the appeal Monday morning.

A statement from Christie’s office noted that when the State Supreme Court denied the governor’s efforts to delay same-sex marriages, Chief Justice Stuart Rabner wrote in the denial that “same-sex couples who cannot marry are not treated equally under the law today.”

“Although the governor strongly disagrees with the court substituting its judgment for the constitutional process of the elected branches or a vote of the people, the court has now spoken clearly as to their view of the New Jersey Constitution and, therefore, same-sex marriage is the law,” the governor’s statement said. “The governor will do his constitutional duty and ensure his administration enforces the law as dictated by the New Jersey Supreme Court.”

Meanwhile, across the state same-sex couples began marrying shortly after midnight Monday.

    Good. Don’t waste the state’s money on endless, useless legal action that will most likely lose.

    And the spineless GOP wants to put him in the running for 2916. Just turn the whole country over to the commie left. What is the point. I say bring on a third party – Tea Party. at least this group has back bone and knows how to say the word – Not no, but H@ll No!At least they understand the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I and my husband wrote the RNC and the GOP last week and told them don’t mail us or phone us anymore begging for money. Not one penny to these bums. Defund the GOP. Scr@w them like they have Scr@w us, the voters in this country. May them and their next 6 generations of children be damned and curse the rest of their rotten lives. And let’s not forget the stupid blacks in this country for putting a 6.5% black and 45.7% Arab Muslim n the white house of shame and corruption. I curse them as well.
