This being said, I look upon recent events in New Jersey with a mixed sense of happiness and grief. While I think it's great that homosexuals have been granted the rights they deserve as US citizens, why is it that these rights have to be "separate but equal." Homosexuals deserve not only the rights of marriage, they deserve to be "married" if they so choose. I for one don't see why they would want to associate themselves with an institution so poisoned by Christianity...but as I may one day have to sacrifice my personal thoughts on the matter for someone that I love, I think every citizen deserves that same right. So, good on the lawmakers of New Jersey...no need for negative reinforcement here...but next time let's remember the lesson we all learned in school, and the decision our highest court has already made.
