Republican Gov. Chris Christie was interviewed on Meet the Press on NBC and naturally, with two neighboring states, Connecticut and New York, having legalized same-sex marriage, the conversation went in that direction. Christie sounds rather firm in his views against same-sex marriage in New Jersey.
“We had a very vigorous debate in late 2009, early 2010—before I became governor—about same-sex marriage, and it failed in the state legislature under a Democratic legislature with Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine,” he said. “And so my view on it is, in our state we're going to continue to pursue civil unions,” said Gov. Christie. “I am not a fan of same-sex marriage. It’s not something that I support.”
Not only that, he said he’ll veto a same-sex marriage law if the legislature passes one.
“I believe marriage should be between one man and one woman. That's my view, and that'll be the view of our state because I wouldn't sign a bill that— like the one that was in New York,” said Christie.
Honestly? Jersey's a dictatorship now? All the ways around here are Christie's ways?
