Same-sex marriages must be allowed in N.J., judge rules

(CNN) - Same-sex couples must be permitted to marry in New Jersey based on an earlier U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the matter, a New Jersey judge ruled Friday.

"Same-sex couples must be allowed to marry in order to obtain equal protection of the law under the New Jersey Constitution," Judge Mary Jacobson of the Mercer County Superior Court wrote in her ruling.

    And yet a gay married couple from New Jersey won't be considered married if they move to Texas.

    No longer the "United" States, is it? Enough with the antebellum-style federalism; gay marriage needs to be the law of the entire land.

    I can see right wing heads exploding now! The same heads that are wondering why Republicans lose elections.

    The issue of same sex marriage is settled law. But, the right wing is still going to waste tax dollars fighting it anyway.

    The "right" wants less government interference, unless of course it's about peeping into someone's bedroom, or a woman's body.

    The first element of the shutdown should be the immediate discontinuation of their pay. Things would get resolved within a day. These idiots have only 2 things on their minds--How do I continue to get paid and What do I do to get re-elected. Their true feeling about the American People..."WHO CARES..."
