Yay for New Jersey!

I really hope my state's supremes follow suit soon.

Yes, because there's nothing like arrogant, anti-republican imposition of judicially-mandated social restructuring supported by fiat and diktat instead of logic or tradition.

Well, it may be anti-Republican (though I'd say liberal or counter-conservative instead, since there are many Republicans in favor of gay marriage), but I'm not convinced it's anti-republican... after all, the republican system of representation does call for certain appointed decision-makers to decide certain things (this used to include U.S. Senators, too, remember).

I think that while gay marriage is not traditional, at this point it is logical. The arguments that marriage is about procreation just don't fit in modern society anymore. And, interestingly enough, my state's Republican governor recently declined to sign legislation that would have statutorily legitimated gay marriage, stating his belief that the definition of marriage is the court's arena. So, in California at least, the buck has officially been passed, and not by the Democrats.
