Vote Yes for Marriage -- New Jersey voters want to now.

Vote Yes on the Marriage amendment. Don't wait for a court to force our state to recognize gay marriage or implement it ourselves before we act.

The people of New Jersey were complacent about a marriage amendment back in the spring, because they didn't think there was any rush, and they didn't see the danger.

Now a court has forced them to implement marriage by some name, and belatedly the people realise they need a marriage amendment. But by the time they implement it, they will have had gay marriages legalized for months if not years, against the will of the people.

We have an opportunity to act BEFORE the courts can force gay marriage on our state against the will of the people. Let's not blow it because supporters of gay marriage are deceiving people with tall tales of false threats to existing laws and contracts.

From the imapp:

NJ Poll: Majority Reject Gay Marriage

The Eagleton-Rutgers poll of 809 New Jersey adults was taken Oct. 29-31. Margin of eror 3.5 percent. The results are dramatically different from a widely touted June New Jersey poll suggesting majorities favored gay marriage.


Most dramatically, New Jerseyans now support a state constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of husband and wife: 54 percent to 38 percent.
