    IMHO - This was the best possible outcome of this court case.

    Our "Compassionate Conservative" brethren love to denigrate:
    "Activist Judges who make laws, instead of merely interpreting them."
    The New Jersey Supreme Court interpreted the law and found it UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

    Our "Compassionate Conservative" brethren love to proclaim:
    "Laws should be written by our elected officials."
    The new law WILL be written by elected officials.

    We got the ruling we wanted!


    The "Uncle Tom's Log Cabin" crowd must be suicidal...

    How many House and Senate seats are the Republicans going to add to their current majority as a result of this? This was the October surprise Karl Rove was praying for. Wonder what this year's gay activist November 8 pity party is going to be like.

    Re: New Jersey Becomes Second State to OK Gay Marriage!

    "Although we cannot find that a fundamental right to same-sex marriage exists in this state, the unequal dispensation of rights and benefits to committed same-sex partners can no longer be tolerated under our state Constitution," Justice Barry T. Albin wrote for the four-member majority.

    I'm not really certain where I come down on this issue. That being said, I honestly do love the "absolute" quality of Justice Albin's statement.
    To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. -- Theodore Roosevelt

    Re: New Jersey Becomes Second State to OK Gay Marriage!

    We should keep in mind that this decision was very close: 4 to 3.



    • 4 of the justices were appointed by a Republican governor, Christine Todd Whitman.


    • 3 of the justices were appointed by former Gov. James McGreevey, a Democrat who resigned in 2004 after acknowledging his own homosexuality.



    The minority opinion argued that same-sex couples are entitled to the label as well as the rights of marriage.


    It is interesting to note that the minority opinion (favoring full marriage rights for same-sex couples) was supported only by Republican appointees.

    California will probably be the next state to approve marriage between members of the same sex. We already legal domestic partnerships with many rights of opposite sex partners. Most state forms have been changed to reflect married or domestic partners. Issurance companies most provide DP coverage. Most employers had extended that coverage prior to the law change. Registered DP's have visitation rights, right of survivorship whether or not a will is written, adoption rights, and now we can file joint income taxes in California.

    California is to date the only state to have approved marriage for same sex couples in both the Assembly and Senate. It was unfortunately vetoed by the governator.

    A lawsuit is schedule to be heard by the California Supreme Court soon. The Superior Court of California found that gays and lesbians were discriminated against. The Court of Appeals rejected that argument. The desenting judges voiced a strong opposition to the courts decision. It now moves to the Supreme Court.

    California was the first state in the nation to declare that interracial marriage would be legal in the state in 1947. The original state constition did not state marriage is only between a man and a women but two individuals. Prop 22 was passed years back to declare marriage to be between a man and a women.

    It looks like that law will be history with the pending Supreme Court decision. Public opinion is more for gay marriage than against. Domestic Partnership was a bold fist step. Domestic Partnerships may only be dissolved through Divorce court.

    Californians await the Supreme courts decision.

    The state has over 19,000 registered domestic partnerships.

    The majority opinion was the judicially responsible one,or we would have been another Massachusetts.It is NOT the role of the judicial branch to decide complex social issues.The court saw the injustice of the current situation,and said that it needed to be remedied by the legislature.The Massachusetts court redefined for itself the institution of marriage,making it appear they were promoting social policy.They left the legislature no options to codify anything but specifically marital status for gays,while this decision gives the responsibility of remedying the situation in a much more flexible manner to the New Jersey legislature.

    Anyway,the decision was the absolutely correct one,and in six months,New Jersey gay couples will by law be legally recognized as fully protected under law,whatever civil status is finally determined.That is worth celebrating....and I'll be ready to cheer on the boards as a proud New Jersey resident when it does.Work still needs to get done,and the religious right will protest and attack the decision as a blow to the family structure,but fuck them.Well done,New Jersey Supreme Court.

    With all due respect, I still think it's a short-sighted decision in terms of legal legal recognition out of the state. With civil unions, there's no way another state is going to be legally required to recognize the union. At least with marriage, there would have been more standing to sue another state under the Full Faith and Credit Clause (although DOMA would have to be repealed first...the one thing I truly hated about the Clinton administration. Now THAT really screwed us!)

    I also hate the term "activist judge," especially in this case. The marriage laws of NJ do not make a distinction between opposite- and same-sex couples. The only thing it mentions is the ban on bigamous and incenuous marriages. Now, maybe there was a mention in the legislative history that it was supposed to only be opposite-sex (there could be...I'm just too lazy to look it up), but there's nothing explicitly stated in the statute so I don't think it's too far a stretch to include same-sex couples under the marriage definition.
