If not for GOP Governor's obstructionism, NJ would be tiny step from peace

by Jeremy Hooper

Congrats, NJ legislature, for doing the right, fair, and overdue thing:

The New Jersey Assembly voted 41 to 33 to pass A. 1, the bill that would extend the freedom to marry to gay and lesbian couples.

Gov. Christie has a chance to be on the right side of history rather than the far-right side . But I'm done hoping for that for now. The better hope in the short-term: That enough of the fence-sitters who didn't vote for marriage in either the House or Senate will respect the process enough to override Chris Christie's one, baseless pen stroke.
