Gov. Christie saved us from God's wrath (and other things I can't believe can kill civil rights in 2012)

by Jeremy Hooper

Rather than support civil fairness in his supposedly church-separated state, this is the theocratic mentality that Gov. Christie supported via his veto:

"We believe it to be the highest form of hubris when those in authority tinker with natural law and challenge God in His creation of the natural order. He will not be mocked," said Len Deo, founder and president of the New Jersey Family Policy Council. "… Those in favor of this bill have long argued that the people shouldn't be allowed to vote on retaining marriage as the union of one man and one woman, but rather that the legislature should decide for them. They have tried the courts and now the legislature; however, we believe this is such a huge public policy shift that the people should weigh in."
[Baptist Press]

But wait, why does Mr. Deo think people should weigh in if he admittedly believes God is the only "voice" that really matters anyway? Isn't that itself the real mockery? I mean, if he, the state's top voice of opposition, is rallying his supporters on a "gays are anti-natural-law" line and acting as if his side "won" because God won't be mocked, then why are we, the ones who are seeking civil rights detached from anyone's personal religious view, expected to also give in to a public plebiscite? They either get to put this whole thing in God's hands or put it all in the hands of mere mortals -- not both!
