The New Jersey Supreme Court paved the way Friday for same-sex couples to start getting married in the state on Monday.

The justices unanimously denied Gov. Chris Christie’s request to stay a lower-court’s earlier ruling that the state must allow same-sex marriage by Monday, the Associated Press reports. That appeal will still be heard, but the unanimous decision against delaying the lower court’s order until then signaled that the state’s prospects in overturning the order are not promising.

Not surprising,  Perversion of homosexuality wins again, this is what happens when pervets are elected.  Polygamy and bestialty are next; in fact, people like Professor Singer are calling for legalizing bestiality.

The cause of equal rights continues to inch forward.  The bluster and bluff of Chris Christie can't undo the progress of time.  

Sooner or later the self-designated party of individual freedom will have to accept the fact that all individuals should be free to make whatever life choices they wish, and the religious views -- or the intolerance -- of some should not restrict the freedom of all.

Good to see now to the next state. It's equality for all not the few so I'm always for a win on that account.

@Cami People who do not understand the difference between human love and banging a sheep are the perverted humans.

@MuhammadTalha

So only a LAW will prevent people from having gay sex and exclusive same sex at that? 

Projection is far too common an issue.

@MuhammadTalha Muhammad, take a deep breath. "Every one" ISN'T going to be "marriying same gender" [sic]. Therefore nature is in no danger of being "destroyed". There will always be heterosexuals and they will always be makin' new babies, so life will NOT "stop".

Re: "Government should cancel the bill."

You've provided absolutely NOTHING in the way of an argument as to WHY it should. (Which is WHY you are not believed.) You've only typed your opinion - to which you are entitled - but when you have no reasons or rational to support your opinion, you won't be gaining any new folks to your side.

It's alarmist claptrap like this that make rational, thinking people realize the anti-equality arguments are pure bunkum. In fact, such crazy, over the top nonsense like this is WHY your side is losing.

@georgeolds,  Homosexuals marrying will destroy the "moral" fabric of America.  Homosexuality is a perverson period!
