NJ Lawmaker Pushes For Traditional Marriage Definition

I like this comment from New Jersey state senator Gerald Cardinale:
“The court does not have the authority – as I read the constitution – to order the legislature to pass a bill. They can do a lot of things, but they are not the whole government.”
I think that a lot of people are products of our liberal education system and therefore mistakenly believe that the court has more power then it really has. The courts are just one branch of three equal parts of government.
Good Luck to you, Senator. We are praying for your success.

(CNSNews.com) – A New Jersey state senator is pushing for a constitutional amendment that will limit marriage to a union between one man and one woman.

Republican Gerald Cardinale’s move follows a New Jersey Supreme Court ruling that gave the state’s legislature six months to allow same-sex couples to “marry” or to enter into civil unions that hold the same legal benefits as marriage.

“The court does not have the authority – as I read the constitution – to order the legislature to pass a bill,” Cardinale said. “They can do a lot of things, but they are not the whole government.”

“We’re dealing with a decision of the New Jersey Supreme Court, and the court has indicated that we need to do certain things within a certain period of time, so I thought this was a good thing to do in response to the court decision.”

Cardinale told Cybercast News Service that the proposed amendment would “clearly set forth that marriage is a term, or a state, that can only be applied to a union of one man and one woman, and add that to our constitution so that it is not subject to the vagaries of the personal biases of a judge’s decision in the future.”
