USA, New Jersey: Governor Christie Won’t Change Mind on Marriage Equality

New Jersey Governor Cris ChristieGovernor Chris Christie insists he won’t change his mind on marriage equality.

On Top Magazine reports:

As Christie, a possible 2016 Republican candidate for president, pressed the flesh at the Edison Diner, Bert Bueno, a straight woman, asked: “How come you’re in opposition?” “Listen: Lots of different people have different views on this,” Christie is quoted as saying by The Star-Ledger. “I think marriage is between a man and a woman. My view is: If you want to change it, put it on the ballot. Let everybody decide.”

Queerty elaborates in the conversation:

“But this is different than gun control or taxes,” Bueno interjected.

“No, I don’t think it is different,” the governor said.

“It’s a human rights issue,” Bueno insisted.

“Says you,” Christie responded.

And there you have it: for Christie, marriage equality is not a human rights issue.

Not surprising, but kinda sad.

    Too bad. Good reason to work doubly hard against him if he is their nominee.

    As a gay man and a human being in a relationship for 34 years, I am glad I have Governor Andrew Cuomo instead of Christie. That is all.
