Thanks to Blue Jersey for this video and discussion. Most know in New Jersey that civil unions are indeed second class status to marriage equality. Also, most know that once the November election passes Governor Corzine wants a bill on his desk to sign for marriage equality. It will happen in New Jersey. Since New York just said it will accept other marriages from other states this will help the northeast continue its roll toward marriage equality altogether.
It is strange to advocate for this - as someone who does not really want to be married, but it is clearly a human rights issue, one that is preposterously overdue in the Garden State.
