Rights should NEVER be voted on. This man needs to be removed from office. Can’t they override his veto??
Christie is a coward. There is no legal precedent in NJ for any marriage laws being on a public ballot. Not interracial marriage or allowing freed African Americans to marry. Either all marriages go on the ballot or none. Democracy and equality are not selective or pejorative.
If the courts decide, they’re being activists; if the legislature decides, they’re undermining the will of the people; if the executive decides, he’s being a dictator; If the people decide, it’s the tyranny of the majority. What a joke.

You cannot vote on the rights of a minority.
