“I’ve long believed in and have always spoken out for the rights of same sex couples and fully agree with Gov. Corzine”

SOUNDBITES — “Like many of you who live in New Jersey, I’ve been following the progress of the marriage-equality legislation currently being considered in Trenton. I’ve long believed in and have always spoken out for the rights of same sex couples and fully agree with Governor Corzine when he writes that, ‘The marriage-equality issue should be recognized for what it truly is — a civil rights issue that must be approved to assure that every citizen is treated equally under the law.’ I couldn’t agree more with that statement and urge those who support equal treatment for our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters to let their voices be heard now.” —Rock star and New Jersey native Bruce Springsteen, coming out for marriage in his home state

      This is great. Now if only current acts can come out and say the same things as Springsteen. Bon Jovi still charts, so he is one NJ resident who would be great as a supporter. But I’d like to see some rappers (ha!), country stars, pop stars, etc. Anyone who charts top ten/20 nowadays.

      Born in the USA!

      And yeah, still mad at the very misleading headline that suggested Julian Bond was against marriage equality (Julian Bond: Civil Unions Are Separate But Equal); so WTF Queerty? You can’t spell Bruce correctly. Perhaps you guys/gals need to breathe BEFORE hitting the send button and hit the spell check?

      How come there is more outrage over the marriage inequality than a law created by Uganda meant to begin a gay holocaust?

      It’s a lot easier to worry about what’s close to home… and the outcome in NJ isn’t yet certain, whereas in Uganda it is.
