It is obvious that N.J. Gov. Chris Christie respects Whitney Houston, but not homosexual residents in New Jersey. Flags will be lowered on Saturday in honor of the late pop star who was born in New Jersey, but lived most of her life outside of the Garden State. This, just one day after Christie denied same-sex couples the right to marry.
N.J. Gov. Chris Christie is the state’s Republican Governor who has found himself among the center of controversy many times. From cutting municipal budgets in unrealistic ways to lowering the U.S. flag to honor Whitney Houston, he has now made new enemies.
The “practicing Catholic,” Christie is sending the wrong message. Two people of the same-sex cannot legally marry, but if you are born in New Jersey and become famousÂ—you are golden! The New Jersey governor who opposes same-sex marriage, had vowed “very swift action” once the bill reached his desk.
Looks like when the U.S. flag is at half-staff on Saturday, N.J. residents can mourn not only a former resident, but the chance for all to have marriage equality. Just remember taxes are due by April 17, 2012 for both heterosexual and homosexual New Jersey residents!
