"* By 63% to 31%, New Jersey voters say they'd be fine with the state
legislature upgrading civil unions to marriage equality. * By 72% to 21%, New
Jersey voters say state legislators would be in no electoral danger if they
enacted marriage equality. * By 61% to 29%, New Jersey voters say they expect
the state to enact marriage equality within just a couple of years. Zogby asked
the baseline question - do you favor marriage equality versus civil unions - in
two ways. Results are 48% to 45% for marriage equality in one question, 48% to
30% in another. And a significant 35% of respondents said they would be less
likely to do business with a company that denies equal benefits to gay
employees. 20% said 'much less likely.'"
Time for change, there is no reason that anyone should be denied the right to express love in an equal fashion. This is a humyn rights issue, the belief that homosexuality is a sin, is a right that is protected by the constitution. That right does not give Christians or the government the right to force that belief on those who do not believe. The right to civil marriage should be protected under the law, allow churches the rights to grant ceremonies as they see fit. The people are leading on this issue, and the politicians are being dragged kicking and screaming along.
