Statement by Speaker Christine C. Quinn – New Jersey Assembly Passage of Gay Marriage Bill

February 23, 2012
“The New Jersey legislature  sent the clear message on February 16th that bigotry has no place in the laws that govern us. I applaud the State Assembly’s courage for supporting marriage equality, even in the face of opposition from Governor Chris Christie. I want to thank Garden State Equality and everyone who fought for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality in New Jersey.
Make no mistake: There is growing national momentum for marriage equality in this country, and we will not stop fighting for justice until every LGBT person is granted the right to marry the person they love.  I urge Governor Chris Christie to stop playing politics and start following Governor Cuomo’s lead by putting equality first.”
