nj-gay-marriage-committee trentonActivists are lining up inside New Jersey’s Statehouse before a debate over whether to legalize To’eiva marriage. The state Senate’s Judiciary Committee is set to consider allowing the marriages. If the bill clears the committee, the measure could be up for a vote in the whole Senate on Thursday. The bill would also need to be passed in the Assembly, where no vote is scheduled. Proponents are pushing to pass it because Gov. Jon Corzine has said he would sign it. Gov.-elect Chris Christie says he would veto it. Four states allow To’eiva marriage. New Hampshire is to join them on Jan. 1.

The city council in Washington D.C. is expected to allow it there later this month.

New Jersey would become the most populated state with legal To’eiva marriage.

  1. Tell the clowns in Trenton that G-d was sending a message to ALL people, not just Jews, when He created Adam and Eve, and NOT Adam and STEVE!!!

  2. Seriously, all we should do is call our state senator and assemblyman and register our voice with their office. This should be done throughout the state.
