Merry Chris Christiemas. The guv-elect got you this unprincipled rights negotiation...

by Jeremy Hooper

Yea, because civil rights and basic fairness for your citizens really should be a two-sided "debate." Right, Governor-elect?

"This is where the people of New Jersey obviously have differences of opinion, [New Jersey Governor-elect Chris Christie], who opposes same sex Chris-Christiemarriage, said Monday. "There are lots of people who feel very strongly about same sex marriage and believe it should be the law of the state, and there are lots of folks like me who believe that it shouldn't.

"The fact that [Bruce Springsteen] believes that, that's his right," he continued. "But by the same token, it's my right to believe what I want to believe, too."

Unfair enough. Here's just hoping he'll understand when New Jersey's unequal gay citizens have a "difference of opinion" about paying their full taxes!

Your thoughts

Hey Chris, I know you are trying to protect all of us gays, correct? By preventing gay marriage, you just want us not to have to endure the embarrassment of infidelities and divorces that is so rampant in the straight world.
Well, we want a chance at all of that too, so get off your high horse and give it a rest!

Ban divorce if you want to save the institution of marriage!

Time for non-violent civil disobedience.
