Discrimination against same-sex marriages cannot be tolerated in our society as a matter of law

Dec 18, 2011 | Posted by: Rick in Kansas | Full story: blog.nj.com

Since my vote in favor of the Defense of Marriage Act 15 years ago, like tens of millions of Americans, I have reflected deeply and frequently about this issue. During this time, I have engaged in discussions about the issue of marriage equality with friends, family members, colleagues and of course, the people I serve in New Jersey. I have heard and listened to many different views.

But for me, this comes down to an issue of fundamental fairness. For me, this comes down to the principles I learned as the child of immigrants and that I cherish as an American: that we believe in equality for all people under the law.

If we DO NOT believe in equality of all Americans under the law, then the basic foundation of our country is a lie.
