Gay Jewish Activist Steve Goldstein Recommends New Jersey State Legislature Legalize Homosexual Marriage
Jewish supremacists continue to operate at the forefront of all the culturally-destabilizing social movements in the United States. I have previously documented how Jews dominate the gay rights movement in the United States, a domination that is not numerical in nature, but is disproportionately strong due to tribalistic influence.
And New Jersey is the latest state where traditional marriage in under attack. On December 9th, 2008, the state's Civil Union Review Commission concluded that New Jersey's two-year-old civil union law doesn't do enough to give gay couples the same protections as heterosexual married couples.
"This commission finds that the separate categorization established by the Civil Union Act invites and encourages unequal treatment of same-sex couples and their children," the report says. The findings of the commission's 13 members were unanimous. The vice-chairman of the commission is Steve Goldstein, who is also the chairman of Garden State Equality, a homosexual rights group. Proof that Goldstein is Jewish is documented HERE. A biography of Goldstein is available HERE. Goldstein also pictured above left, wearing the beanie.

The commission found that the rights afforded to those in civil unions were not always well understood, and that allowing gay couples to marry would alleviate the problem. For example, there have been instances when people in civil unions have been prevented from visiting their partners in hospitals and making medical decisions on their behalf, the commission found. But unlike advocates in other states, the New Jersey commission is advocating a legislative remedy so that opponents can't charge them with being "undemocratic".
A spokesman for Democratic Governor Jon S. Corzine said the governor would not comment on the report until it was presented. However, Corzine is previously on record as saying he would sign a bill allowing gay marriage.
Supporters of traditional marriage wasted little time in panning both the report and the commission. They claim the commission has been deliberately packed with gay marriage supporters, and called its recommendations predetermined. "If you look at the membership of that committee, they're all advocates. It's an advocacy group," Pat Brannigan, the executive director of the pro-family New Jersey Catholic Conference, said Tuesday. "It doesn't mean that that is the conclusion that society and people in general will come to."
And John Tomicki, president of the New Jersey Coalition to Preserve and Protect Marriage and a leading opponent of gay marriage, pledged to make it an issue in the 2009 state elections. Tomicki criticized the commission as "set up to have no balance." He once again called for an amendment to the state constitution defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Tomicki said public polls and his conversations with lawmakers have led him to believe it would pass. "The ultimate result should be the people should decide the definition of marriage," Tomicki said. "The biggest thing the commission is afraid of is the ballot box."
Connecticut and Massachusetts are the only states to allow gay marriage, and both were ordered to do so by their highest courts. Earlier this year, California's high court said it was unconstitutional to deny gay couples the right to marry, but the decision was overruled by a constitutional amendment approved by voters last month. However, gay marriage supporters, including the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), have already filed court briefs to overturn the vote.
However, traditional marriage is also under attack in Iowa. Just today, the Iowa Supreme Court concluded hearing arguments from people on both sides of the question. Supporters of traditional marriage are attempting to overturn a 2007 lower court ruling directing the state to legally marry six couples. In his lower-court ruling, which found for the gay plaintiffs, Judge Robert B. Hanson of the Fifth Judicial District was sweeping in his dismissal of the state’s claims that heterosexual marriage was bolstered by an exclusionary definition. The core of this case is Varnum v. Brien.
The rot is spreading.
