I don't want to have to read a ballot question about same-sex marriage to my daughters. They don't know that some people, like our governor, think our family is less worthy. And I don't want them to know that a minute before they absolutely have to.

Governor Christie's veto only delayed the day and time when we finally establish marriage equality in the Garden State -- because it is going to happen in New Jersey, and we are going to override his veto.
Christie went on to say that activists in the civil rights era "would have been happy to have a referendum," a statement
Last week's ruling by the federal appellate court in California makes clear that alternative recognition schemes like domestic partnerships and civil unions are good, but they are not good enough. One hopes that Governor Christie is paying attention.
