NJ’s Barbara Buono Slams Gov. Chris Christie On Same-Sex Marriage

At last night’s New Jersey gubernatorial debate, Democrat Barbara Buono slammed Republican Chris Christie. Buono, whose daughter is lesbian, is running against the incumbent governor.

Speaking about his often-repeated position that same-sex marriage should be placed on the ballot — rather than voted on in the state legislature — so majority rule can decide the rights of gay people, Christie defended his comments.

“I trust the people of New Jersey to make this judgment. I don’t trust 121 politicians with political agendas,” Christie told Buono.

“My daughter, who is openly gay, is not a political agenda,” Buono responded.

Touché.

Earlier today, Governor Christie stopped at a local diner and got into a debate with a voter who supports same-sex marriage. “I have friends who are gay” he told her — but he won’t change his mind on marriage.

Watch the entire debate:

Christie said that he simply has a differing opinion on the subject. Of course he doesn't acknowledge that his simple "opinion" is harming thousands of lives, and is legally enforcing a second-class status on law-abiding taxpaying gay citizens. So, NO, it isn't just a difference of opinion that he's promoting.

Perhaps the citizens of New Jersey should have the right to vote on whether or not morbidly obese people should be able to marry? I'm pretty sure he wouldn't approve of such a measure.

What a liar and hypocrite. The only reason he even cares is because of HIS political agenda. This is all about his own political ambitions and nothing else.
