The Web Goddess and I are headed to Trenton Monday morning to lobby for pending legislation that would legalize same-sex marriage in New Jersey. We’ll be car-pooling with friends both gay and straight from St. George’s Episcopal Church.
I’ll be wearing the snazzy T-shirt at left, designed by the Web Goddess of course, and available from Cafe Press.
This week is the last chance for at least four years to establish marriage equality legislatively in New Jersey. If the state Senate Judiciary Committee votes the bill out of committee Monday, the full Senate is likely to vote on Thursday. Democratic Governor Jon Corzine has said he would sign the bill. Republican Governor-elect Chris Christie has said he would veto it. At the committee hearing, the Right Reverend Mark M. Beckwith, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark and the Web Goddess’s boss, will be testifying in favor of the bill.
