Video: Guardin' state equality (from gay couples)

by Jeremy Hooper

Today at noon, the National Organization For Marriage will roll their RV up into Trenton. But before they get there, let's hear from some of New Jersey's more elect marriage equality opponents delivering an irreconcilable message that says (a) gays don't need equality, while at the same time admitting that (b) same-sex couples don't currently have equality under the state's flawed civil unions system:

Quite simply: They can't have it both ways! If one pinpoints a problem and then works toward its logical fix, he or she is a solver.
