Gay Marriage in NJ

Gay marriage is now (for the moment) legal in New Jersey. New Jersey is the fourteenth state to allow marriage equality thus far. Governor Chris Christie announced that he is no longer going to fight this legally.

I'm not going to write a post on why gay marriage should be allowed because that's moronic. Clearly, the reasons are obvious enough: two consenting adults should be allowed to do what they wish, despite any religion telling them otherwise. I am simply going to say that it's beautiful and wonderful that one more state is finally pushing past bigotry, that this is another tremendous victory.

One day during my lifetime, I know that I will see gay marriage become legal federally. It's only a matter of time. If it becomes legal at a federal level, the state constitutions that ban it won't matter: they'll be overturned. Perhaps legal all over the Western world.

For all those groups that are working to oppress gay people and keep gay marriage banned... They'll die out. Exodus International already did. And their leaders are dying out too.

Plus, my dad had the wonderful happenstance of having this occur on his birthday.

All very cool :)
