Should We Be Voting on Same Sex Marriage in NJ? [POLL]

Same sex marriage is a hot button issue in New Jersey. Would you rather have the politicians decide if gays should be able to marry or would you like to make that decision. Advocates of gay marriage are trying to convince state lawmakers to override Governor Christie’s veto of a bill that would legalize same sex marriage. The Governor would like it decided by a voter referendum.

Can you believe we’re talking about letting people decide how other people who are breaking no laws should be able to live in New Jersey? Regardless of what you’re religious beliefs are, same sex marriage is a legal issue that effects the benefits that married people are entitled to as opposed to those in a civil union. Maybe the way around this is to form a religion that allows gays to marry and since we have freedom of religion in this country…..just a thought.

If the question were should the church allow same sex marriage it would be a different story. We have a separation of church and state. We have different religions that are opposed in viewpoint. We allow all those people to practice their religion without interference. Being gay is not a religion, nor is it illegal.

The Declaration of Independence states “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal”

If that be the case, then the laws should be equal regardless of your sexuality. The Supreme Court has come around, how about you? Would you have a problem with same sex marriage in New Jersey?
