Congratulations to all of the Gay and Lesbian couples who will finally be able to legally marry.......it's been a long fight in New Jersey and one that is not totally over, but I do believe this ruling and compliance from Christie make New Jersey officially the 14th State!!!

It's not like Christie has any choice BUT to comply with an order from their Supreme Court.

Remember this was a UNANIMOUS decision by a Republican-appointed majority court (including 2 Christie appointments) to deny the stay. The statement from the Chief Justice was a direct smackdown of Christie.

Gotta love it!

Thank you Governor Christie for doing the right thing and trying to preserve decency in NJ for as long as you could.

Unfortunately the fate of America is sealed and every state will eventually be forced to follow the entire country down the toilet.

Gee two identical comments from the same person under different nics.......how pathetic is that?

By the way......Christie wasn't doing the right thing.......just didn't want to do the right thing in the first place and what the Chief Justice of the NJSC stated was that basically the Governor's appeal in January is a waste of time......but Christie doesn't care about that......just doesn't want his cash cow to dry up!!!

This is such a thrilling time to be borngay!
.
The Flag of Equal Marriage is being readied for the New Jersey Star:
http://makeitequal.org/
.
This will give us 14 stars on the flag
.
New Jersey is the third most populous state to earn a star on the flag; after California and New York
.
This means more than 1/3 of the entire population of the US lives in a state where Gay Marriage is legal
.

Nope, he wants that cash cow for when he runs for the Republican ticket in 2016.

Elton who?

What court is he on?

I learned that same-sex couples are able to exercise their right to marry in yet another state on Monday!

Up next- New Mexico, Hawaii, & Illinois.

Elton John said that back when England didn't have full Marriage Equality.....but has since changed his position regarding Marriage Equality!!!

Here is his comment as of 2011:
Elton John has changed his tune on gay marriage.

The legendary musician and gay icon performed at a $3 million fundraiser for the American Foundation for Equal Rights in support of marriage rights, and issued some harsh words for opponents of equality.

"It seems so ridiculous I could be with my partner for 17 years and we have a son, and my partner and I can't get married," he told the crowd (via AP), before issuing a "f*ck you,' to those responsible for keeping him from marriage.

It was a different sentiment than what he said two years ago, when Proposition 8 was passed in California.

"We have a civil partnership," he said, talking about he and longtime partner, David Furnish. "What is wrong with Proposition 8 is that they went for marriage. Marriage is going to put a lot of people off, the word marriage," he said to USA Today at a gala for his Elton John AIDS Foundation in 2008.

He is an authority on both marriage, and the law?

Who knew? I always thought he was just an entertainer. But then, if you take all of your guidance from celebrities, that might explain a few things.

I have never lost an argument to a homosexual. Facts are on my side. He was asked if his marriage was equal to a traditional marriage. His response was "of course not."

He has experience with both. I don't know if I'd call him an authority but he sure has more knowledge than most of the gays who post here.

Unless he sits on the SCOTUS or one of the state Supreme Courts, or is a Congressman or state legislator or Governor, then his opinion doesn't really matter any more than yours.

Again, his opinion is no more relevant than yours. If he moves to the US and becomes a US citizen, then I might care what he says.
