NJ: Long-denied justice will not be delayed; legal marriages on 10/21!

by Jeremy Hooper

Nj-2Gov. Chris Christie's resistance to taking his state over to history's right side is looking more and more wrongheaded:

Earlier today, a New Jersey Superior Court judge denied the request to delay implementation of the historic court ruling affirming marriage equality Based on a ruling by Judge Mary Jacobson in late September, the courts will start issuing marriage licenses on October 21st to same-sex couples.

In eleven days, loving couples across the Garden State will marry. And the Governor wants to then follow that up with a vote that he hopes will ultimately strip those couples of their newfound rights, protections, and happiness?

I've always found Gov. Christie's stance on this issue to be particularly obnoxious. After 10/21, it will also be exceedingly cruel.
