Marriage Victory in New Jersey
As you saw reported here on Catholic Advocate yesterday, the New Jersey State Senate was the first battleground of 2010 for Same-Sex Marriage activists.
The New Jersey State Senate went into session shortly after 2:00 p.m. this afternoon and rejected the same-sex marriage bill by a vote of 20-14 shortly before dinner time for many families on the East Coast.
Marriage is one of the foundations of our society and efforts to redefine it today failed in Trenton. Thankfully, for the next four years, families in the Garden State have incoming Governor Christie there to uphold his promise to veto any further attempts.
The challenges are not over. Same Sex Marriage activists tried to make New Jersey their sixth victory. They will now shift their strategy to other battles where they hope to taste success.
