    Or maybe you only want direct democracy on those things you think the legislature gets wrong, despite the fact that polls have consistently shown that the majority wants same sex marriage to be legal?
    No majority of the people of any state has voted for SSM. When taken to a vote SSM was always soundly defeated and that will continue in November with Washington and NJ and maybe more.. Like I said the only states were allowed to marry with the exception of Iowa were liberal blue states.....31 states have constitutional amendments banning SSm. Stay tuned.

    I didn't call you anything.

    Please don't lie.

    Show some integrity and defend your position.

    You think bigotry is reasonable--yes or no?

    How does their side lose if they have gay marriage? Because you choose to use a different term its not a victory for gay marriage supporters? Those of us who actually support traditional marriage lost New Jersey and any other state that has civil unions/domestic partnerships.Marriage is marriage regardless if you call it marriage or use some term invented by closet gay marriage supporters to sucker traditional marriage supporters. Face it man you are a gay marriage supporter in denial over the fact you support gay marriage.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    What problem could you possibly have with civil unions?

    It is possible to have the position of "who cares". That's the position I have. I don't agree with gay marriage. I think its repulsive. I also know it isn't any of my business. Its no ones business until a gay couple tries to adopt.

    Re: Chris Christie set to veto gay marriage bill

    I live in NJ. Not a fan of Christie at all... I will certainly help to get him voted out of office in 2013. He'll probably veto this, but it really doesn't matter. Nationwide polls are showing that support for gay marriage keeps rising every year. My guess is that within the next 10 years, it will be legal. Anti's with continue to complain, but once it's legal, it will be a whole lot easier to ignore their complaints, especially since, with the exception of religious reasons or wanting to get government out of marriage altogether, no anti has ever presented a logical opinion against SSM. At least not one that I could not destroy.

    Why is it your business when a gay couple tries to adopt?
