  1. First and foremost – let’s all get on the phone and call every elected official in the State of New Jersey – especially the Democrats in the State Senate and Assembly, and respectfully register our strong opposition to the bill. Then DAVEN to AVINU SHEBASHAMAYIM that this terrible gezeira should not pass!!!

  2. Please call today – from speaking with the legislative offices I can personally tell you that it makes a difference. If not for the constant barrage of phone calls this toieva of a bill would have passed already.

  3. Those of you AGAINST judge these people because of whom they love. The orthodox community does not like to be judged because of how they dress, the religion, they practice, or any other stereotypes. Please stop judging these people. Because they have found love, is a good thing.I encourage other readers to vote YES to Same Sex Marriage.

  4. Mike,
    We who are opposed to this bill don’t judge anyone. We are merely trying to protect our families from from the people who are trying to force their behavior on us. And yes, if it passes, school text books will have to be amended to discuss (promote) this life style. Adoption agencies will be forced to allow these “couples” to adopt. Etc.
    Look yourself in the mirror – it is you who are trying to force your abberant life style on us and not the reverse.
