Chris Christie is pro-gay, y’all! Never mind that he vetoed a gay-marriage bill and believes, in his religious heart of hearts, that marriage is between one (portly) man and one (normal-sized) woman.
You see, what we’ve been misunderstanding is the absolutely crucial difference between “gay rights” and “gay marriage.”
“I did veto a bill on gay marriage, not on gay rights,” Christie said at a meeting with Fort Lee, NJ students, streamed live on NBC’s Morning Joe. “Gay rights are protected and protected aggressively in New Jersey.”
“This is something I feel strongly about, I think marriage is between a man and a woman… What I’ve said to folks, after vetoing the bill is, let’s put it on the ballot. If a majority of people in New Jersey want to have same-sex marriage, then I’ll be governed by it. But I don’t think that’s a decision that should be made by 121 people in Trenton alone. It’s a major change in the way we’ve governed our society.”
Yes, it’s so weird that governors would have to make decisions about civil rights issues, isn’t it? And to make fair laws that they’ve been elected to make? That’s just majorly different than what’s happened for the past 200 years in America.
