Bush on New Jersey's Supreme Court
I think the president is fine with the New Jersey Supreme Court decision. Well, at least if he still believes this:
"I don't think we should deny people rights to a civil union, a legal arrangement, if that's what a state chooses to do so. I view the definition of marriage different from legal arrangements that enable people to have rights. And I strongly believe that marriage ought to be defined as between a union between a man and a woman. Now, having said that, states ought to be able to have the right to pass laws that enable people to be able to have rights like others."
So it's up to New Jersey's legislature. And Bush would vote for civil unions. I can live with that. I'd prefer marriage equality, but within a another generation, I really don't think it will even be a contentious issue.
