Students And Activists Protest Same-Gender Marriage Outside BMG

BMG anti gay protest(PHOTOS) With no word of any official statements or signs of protest coming from any official administrations in Town, several BMG students and activists decided to take matters into their own hands and protest the much talked about marriage bill issue, on their own. Several Bachurim and Yungerleit were seen outside the Kleinman campus of BMG this afternoon writing and holding signs protesting the same-gender marriage bill. The signs read the following: “A Democratic Republic needs moral values based on Religous principles”.

  1. MAYBE THIS IS A STATEMENT FOR THE FEW PEOPLE TO USE THE CORRECT VENUE TO ARRANGE SUCH AN ASIFA. OBVIOUSLY A PUBLIC ASSIFA IS NOT THE WAY APPROVED BY OUR RABBONIM..

    I WAS APPROCHED SEVERAL MONTHS AGO TO SEE IF I COULD HELP THEM. IT WAS OBVIOUS THEY DID NOT KNOW WHAT THEY WWERE DOING AND I QUESTIONED IF THE RABBONIM WERE BEHIND THEM..
    R BLECH ALREADY MADE THE BIGGEST PROTEST WHEN HE MET WITH GOVERNOR CORZINE AND MANY KEY ASKONIM AND OPENLY NOTIFIED HIM OUR POSITION IN REGARDS TO SAME GENDER MARRIAGE.

  2. to #7 corzine isnt voting on this. in fact he has promised to sign it if it gets to his desk.. the senators are voting first. they are the ones who need to hear our voices. the catholics put together 165,000 signatures letting the world know how they feel. WHY CANT WE?

  3. #7, I agree with you. Some young hotheads don’t always know what they are doing and how to get things done. If those who are older and wiser are not organizing public protests, the rest of us should just keep it low key. We are not in competition with the Catholics to see who’s more religious.

  4. Our mesorah is one of quiet askanus – this is simply not the way the Torah community responds to these threats. I implore these young “activists” to return to the beis medrash – their absence is a pirtza in the choma which protects our holy nation from precisely the type of influence which they are protesting. Your askanus should be in Torah!

  5. I think toieva marriage is because of a lack of tzniyus in our community. We need an IMMEDIATE ASIFA of all the people to say slichos and board busses to trenton where we can camp out, sing songs and learn mishnayos by candlelight. Efshar the zchus of kol yisrael b’achdus on this issue will prevail on the farfeerteh to reform their toieva practices.

  6. #9 I am #7

    my statement is to these few individuals who may think that others have not done anything on a local level obviously have no idea that R Blech was very clear in letting the current Governor who is the current active Governor and will sign the bill into law if it passes next week that we are against it. The few individuals sound like they feel they are doing what is correct bu may or may not be doing more damage.

    Agusth Israel of America – NJ with R Josh Purzansky has been emailing people to call theor Senators.

    Protesting in front of BMG or going to Trenton to hold a press conference with mostly an empty bus of 10 frum people makes them and us looks like fools.

  7. “A Democratic Republic needs moral values based on Religous principles”

    A republic which imposes religious values is a theocracy, not a democracy. The last thing we Jews need is a government imposing religous values on us, historically that hasn’t worked out so well for us (Spanish Inquisition comes to mind).

  8. Corzine promised to push through a few important agendas for the tzibur before he leaves office so we don’t want to chepper with him now.
