New Jersey governor wants statewide referendum on same-sex marriage

Catholic World News - January 26, 2012

New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie has vowed to veto any legislation calling for legal recognition of same-sex marriage.

Rather than attempting to press legislators for a change in the legal definition of marriage, Christie challenged homosexual activists to let the people of New Jersey decide the issue through a statewide referendum. “The institution of marriage is too serious to be treated like a political football,” Christie said. “I would hope the legislature would be willing to trust the people the way I’m willing to trust the people.”
