New Jersey Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Same-Sex Unions
A huge victory for equal rights today from New Jersey where the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples are entitled to the same rights as straight couples are:
Denying committed same-sex couples the financial and social benefits and privileges given to their married heterosexual counterparts bears no substantial relationship to a legitimate governmental purpose. ….committed same-sex couples must be afforded on equal terms the same rights and benefits enjoyed by opposite-sex couples under the civil marriage statute.
This Novembers constitutional ammendment question that would outlaw same-sex unions is going to be a huge moment for the people Wisconsin. Either we will choose to align ourselves with the bigoted and backwards laws of generally Southern states, or we will support to choose a progressive agenda that says all people are equal.
A little good news in an otherwise bleak month.
