More importantly, the NJ Supreme Court will have to issue a stay in the next 5 days or same-sex couples will be able to start marrying.

I applaud anyone who in these times sticks to their beliefs and does not conform to liberal political correctness.

I truly believe that many people, especially those in politics and in the public eye (celebrities, sport figures and such), come out in support for whatever the latest trendy PC crap is (homosexuality right now) just for PR. They do not really feel the way they say they do. I cannot believe all these people really support deviance and perversion.

They support FREEDOM. If you think something is "deviance and perversion", then you're free to avoid it. But you don't get to make that decision for everyone else, based on your personal tastes.

Conservatives are never, ever EVER going to win this debate, if they think that they can just BAN whatever they don't like, on the grounds that they don't like it.

Live your life, let others live theirs, or admit that freedom isn't something you respect.

There are something like 400-600 well-studied and recorded species which have members with regular homosexual behavior, from apes through birds. There is only ONE species with homophobia. Guess which?

You aren't really stupid enough to believe Gov Christie actually opposes same-sex couples marrying?

The ONLY reason he opposed it is to remain competitive in the far right wing primary for 2016.
