URGENT ALERT: Sustain the Veto! Contact your legislators today!

 

Email Header Image

The battle for marriage in New Jersey is far from over . . . this just might be its most critical hour.

Please take a moment to call or email your state senator and assemblyman today.

Take Action Now

Yesterday afternoon, just hours after the same-sex marriage bill reached his desk, Governor Christie made good on his promise to return the bill to the legislature "with a big red veto." Democratic leaders in the Senate and Assembly—who made same-sex marriage their #1 priority this year—are now scrambling to come up with the 2/3 majority needed to override Governor Christie's veto.

And it's up to us to make sure that they don't succeed in pressuring, cajoling or arm-twisting enough politicians to override Governor Christie's veto.

Initial votes in both the Assembly and the Senate fell well short of the 2/3 majority needed to override a veto, but it is important to send a message to your legislators today—and to keep the pressure up in coming months.

The legislative session continues through the end of 2013, giving gay marriage activists nearly two years to find 3 more votes in the Senate and 12 more votes in the Assembly needed to override the veto.

So please don't let up now. Take a moment to call or email your elected officials in Trenton today.

Same-sex marriage advocates aren't giving up—far from it, they are stepping up their efforts, and we must do the same. Please make your voice heard today—and then forward this email to three friends who would join you in making sure that Governor Christie's veto is sustained, and marriage is preserved in New Jersey.

    I noticed that the bills for same-sex "marriage" aren't reported by major media outlets until, it seem, the day before the vote, long after those in opposition to those bills could have any chance of impacting the legislators.

    In the NJ case, well-financed SS'M" advocates are driving the conversation looking to drum up votes through finance and political favors and hammering away at an ignorant public claiming that homosexual rights are being denied. Is the media reporting this? Of course not; that would give those who oppose SS'M" a chance to contact their legislators and create a front against a radical movement that stays out of the media limelight and works in the political shadows.

    What power might NOM have in getting these efforts mainstreamed into major media outlets. Sure, those of us who recognize that threat posed by SS"M" come to the NOM site to get their news, but the vast majority of the population is clueless, their perspective tainted by a homosexual-infiltrated media.

    You are absolutely correct ResistSSA! I remember when we were marching against it in New York, the Daily News wrote in the paper that there were a "few naysayers" when in fact it was over 10,000 people and then the new media angled their cameras in such a way that it only looked like a handful of people were out there. Gov. Cuomo used so many dirty tricks to get gay marriage passed he should be brought up on ethics charges but of course the new is not reporting everything he did. The very fabric of democracy is being threatened by these people. They are buying these politicians off. Mayor Bloomberg opened his checkbook and gave out al kinds of money to buy SSM in New York, The democrats are taking this country to hell and the people must fight back or it will be too late.

    The homo-movement is also motivated, and allowed to be, in very large part because of the economic possibilities it will offer to 'our' economy...

    So getting the Republican at the upper levels to really stand up and say “no” (in his republican heart) to the homo-movement is not going to be as easy as we think.

    The left enjoys the liberal pleasures of the movement.
    The right enjoys the economic possibility pleasures of the movement.

    And what about people like me who wanted and expected nothing from this unhealthy and crazy political and gouvernment machine of ours, except some most very basic agreements to hold onto, lsuch as the definition of marriage...?

    I will keep fighting. For it is a just and worthwhile fight. And it is not a political or financial one but much larger than that. It is a fight for the truth of human existance.

    We are not frazzled. We are increasingly energized. If we don’t make a stand here, then where do we make a stand? When our children are taught in the schools the irrelevance of fertility or the irrelevance of virtue? When our children are taught that values of the sexual revolution outweigh the rights enumerated in the First, Ninth, and Tenth Amendments? When virtue is no longer considered relevant to the public good?

    Fortunately, in the long run demographics favor those who procreate and who see procreation as an absolute necessity for the survival of society. If we abolish marriage as it has been known since time immemorial with its strong procreative associations and roles for biological fathers and mothers, we will eventually have to reinvent it or dwindle in numbers as other more traditional societies take our place.

    Just because these politicians are passing gay marriage does not mean it will stand. In Washington they are putting together a measure to get it on the ballot and we all know what that means. And the same is true in Maryland. Of course, there is always the possibility that the votes will get overturned like in California. Every American citizen should be up in arms over that. The gay enablers don't care because this is something they want but just let it be something they don't want and their votes get overturned and they are going to scream like little girls. The people of California voted fair and square but because a gay judge didn't like it, he overturned it. Well excuse me, the last time I checked this was supposed to be a democracy not some third world country.

    Louis,

    It may not appear to be a religous issue to you, but for others their free exercise right of conscience is recognized as immutable under the U.S. constitution.

    Immutability is held to strict scrutiny protection not afforded to perverts.

    Pervert:

    A unusual or abnormal sexual act that is habitual.

    Why else do you suppose these miscreants have worked this hard to sell their proclivity as innate? They know that as long a religion, as defined in the history and traditions of the United States, protects the faithful they will never fully succeed.

    These traitors must eliminate the free exercise protections of the loyal opposition in order to to get at our constitutionally protected right to speak out in opposition to their wicked designs.

So you can make your baseless claims of bribery and corruption, but the reality is just like the rest of society, the more they learn about and understand this issue, the more they come around to supporting marriage equality. If people want to reward them with campaign donations, and provide a barrier against those who will seek to retaliate against them for their votes (NOM), that's perfectly legal and legitimate.

    Please Randy, the speeches I've heard from marriage equality supporters, talk about american values of liberty justice fairness and equality of law, humanity love relationships children and lifelong bonds. The speeches coming from opponents, talk about constitutionally impermissible reliance on christianity, the bible, and the tyranny of majority being able to vote on the rights of the minority.

    By-the-way, Thomas Jefferson, a deist was not referring to the christian god when he wrote the declaration of independence, or even any personal god at all. Let alone implying the bible should have any sway over our nation's laws.

    There is nothing constitutionally impermissible about Christianity; a faith firmly grounded in this nations history and traditions.

    And by the way; Thomas Jefferson peeneed on the front pages of his Christian Bible:

    "I am a Christian, that is to say a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus. I have little doubt that our whole country will soon be rallied to the unity of our Creator and, I hope, to the pure doctrine of Jesus also."

    So let their be no doubt that when Thomas Jefferson penned "...endowed by their Creator..." he was refearing to the Christian God of our Fore-Fathers.

    To that point Patrick Henry added:

    "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religious, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here."

    John Adams added:

    "We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and true religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. "

    James Maddison contributed:

    "We have staked the whole future of our new nation, not upon the power of government;far from it. We have staked the future of all our political constitutions upon the capacity of each of ourselves to govern ourselves according to the moral principles of the Ten Commandments. "

    You are a sad an shallow fellow TT; with sad and shallow notions.

    In 1779 Jefferson proposed "The Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom," which was adopted in 1786. Its goal was complete separation of church and state; it declared the opinions of men to be beyond the jurisdiction of the civil magistrate. He asserted that the mind is not subject to coercion, that civil rights have no dependence on religious opinions, and that the opinions of men are not the concern of civil government. This became one of the American charters of freedom. This elevated declaration of the freedom of the mind was hailed in Europe as "an example of legislative wisdom and liberality never before known.

    Fix Reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve the homage of reason than of blindfolded fear. ... Do not be frightened from this inquiry by any fear of its consequences. If it end in a belief that there is no God, you will find incitements to virtue in the comfort and pleasantness you feel in its exercise and in the love of others which it will procure for you.  —Thomas Jefferson

    No man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burdened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer, on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge, or affect their civil capacities.  —Thomas Jefferson

    In 1788 John Adams said in regard to the nation's founding: "The United States of America have exhibited, perhaps, the first example of governments erected on the simple principles of nature. . . . [In] the formation of the American governments . . . it will never be pretended that any persons employed in that service had interviews with the gods, or were in any degree under the influence of heaven. . . . These governments were contrived merely by the use of reason and the senses." 

    As president, John Adams approved the "Treaty with Tripoli" and presented it to the U.S. Senate in 1797. It contains the statement that "the government of the United States of America is not founded in any sense on the Christian religion. . . . "

    Article 11 of the "Treaty of Tripoli" does not exist and has been proved to never have existed in the original Arabic text. Additionally, "The Govenment of the United States..." does not translate to "The United States is not a Christian nation."

    This nation was not founded on the "Treaty of Tripoli'; it was founded on the "Paris Peace Treaty" that begins with:

    "In the name of the most holy and undivided Trinity.

    It having pleased the Divine Providence to dispose the hearts of the most serene and most potent Prince George the Third, by the grace of God, king of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, defender of the faith..."

    Zack,
    Good comments.
    Marriage supporters can get pretty deep into philosophy sometimes :-)

    I think Christianity is both a religion (belief in Christ) and a theology (metaphysic). Christian philosophy holds that the metaphysical part- how the world works- can be discover by reason. As Randy E. King points out, the laws of nature and natures God are self evident to rational men and exist independent of man.

    As for marriage, ssm advocates suggest that all opposition to redefine marriage is religiously based. A specious viewpoint to all but the most intellectually lazy. Any society, religious or not, has to deal with the natural consequence of sex. Some institution would have to evolve that attached mothers and fathers to the children they create.

    Randy, if your assertions about Jefferson's intentions in the Declaration of Independence are correct, then why is our Constitution so devoid of any connection to Christian theology?

    Even today you can find the writings and recordings of former Christian theists who are now atheists with completely different understandings and philosophies. When did Jefferson write some of those things?

    The evidence that our founders intended to create a secular government is pretty solid.

    Randy, the word homosexual didn't exist until the mid 1800's. That doesn't mean there were no homosexuals in the 1700's. Our founders certainly established a secular government without the word secular existing. It means non religious. Our nation was founded on principles of a reason and logic not on religious dogma. Every honest historian will tell you that is what the evidence shows.

    Zach, first off the declaration of independence is not one of our governing documents. It was written to a specific individual for a specific individual. The king of England.

    Furthermore, the declaration does not say 'endowed by our creator' , it says 'endowed by their creator.' No specific deity or god is ever mentioned. That statement includes everyones individual notion of who their creator is. Be that the christian god or simply one's own parents. In other words you're entitled to those rights simply by virtue of being born a human being.

    Jefferson himself one of our preeminent founding fathers, coined the term ' wall of separation between church and state' to describe what it is the first amendment was intended to achieve. No law of this nation can be rooted solely in any religious doctrine tenant or dogma. Laws must be based on rational secular reasons.

    TT,

    Secularism is a religion; it is a Godless religion, but it is a religion none the less. The United States was most definitely was not founded on the Dogma of Secularism; any sane person will tell you that.

    "It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins." Benjamin Franklin

    So now we see that TT contends that the founding fathers used the word "Creator" as an all encompassing descriptive. In TT's world the word 'Creator" can mean whatever you want it to mean; be it a blanket, a light-bulb, a car, a chair, etc...

    The Founding-Fathers solidified their intent on who the "Creator" was to them in the beginning sentences of the Declaration of Independence:

    "When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. "

    In TT's world one man from 1851 has the power to dictate the intent of the 39 self professed Christians that ratified the U.S. Constitution before said man was even born.

    The wall facing the Speaker of the house includes a relief of Moses handing down the Ten Commandments to nine Supreme Court justices – the source of our laws. The wall behind the speaker has our national motto inscribed "In God We Trust."
