Hundreds Protest Gay Marriage in NJ


Opponents of marriage equality in New Jersey gathered at the state capitol Sunday to protest the possibility that legislators may soon legalize same-sex marriage.

Many of the protesters called for voters to decide the issue, according to The Star-Ledger.

"Hundreds of people -- holding signs that read 'Let the people decide' and 'Marriage = one man and one woman' -- gathered in front of the statehouse in Trenton today to protest gay marriage," The Star-Ledger reported. "The crowd applauded as politicians and representatives from the Catholic Church, as well as other religious groups, vowed to defeat gay marriage."

Action on marriage equality remains a possibility in the lame duck session after the November election. Gov. Jon Corzine, a Democrat who faces a tight reelection battle, has pledged to sign the bill. His Republican opponent, Chris Christie, opposes marriage equality.
