NJ Toeivah Marriage Bill Passes; Senate To Vote On Thursday

3

toeivah-marriageA bill to legalize toeivah marriage has cleared the New Jersey state Senate Judiciary Committee, paving the way for a full Senate vote Thursday.

Tonight’s committee vote was 7-6.

New Jersey is the best chance for proponents to add a sixth state allowing toeivah unions.

A similar measure was voted down last week in the New York state Senate. Last month, voters in Maine overturned a law that was enacted this year to allow toeivah weddings but never took effect.

Toeivah marriage is recognized in Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut and Iowa. It becomes legal in New Hampshire in January.

Proponents want the New Jersey bill passed quickly because Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine has said he’d sign it before leaving office.

Republican Gov.-elect Chris Christie says he’d veto it. He takes office Jan. 19.

  1. THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF SOCIETY IF THIS BILL PASSES.I HEARD A SHIUR FROM RAV MOSHE SHAPIRO THAT THESE PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO LEGALIZE TOVEA MARRIAGE ARE DOING IT AS MEANS OF DESTRUCTION OF THE WORLD AND THIS WILL MEAN THAT MOSHIACH HAS TO COME.

  2. The New Jersey Senate has to be admonished that their job is to represent
    and respect their constituents who are fed
    up with this dastardly liberalism and
    licentiousness.

    The deviant proponents of sodomy
    constitute a tiny minority of fanatics.

    It is thus not coincidental that
    Corzine lost the election. The people
    loathe the folly and wickedness of the
    homosexual agenda.

    The politicians in Trenton should
    follow the lead of the New York Senate
    who rejected this sodomite debauchery.

    May God crown our efforts with
    success in our righteous struggle
    with the wicked.

  3. Every day I thank Hashem for giving me a magnificent Torah with its brilliant chukim and mishpatim. Every day I marvel at the brilliance of our chachamim in their interpretation when I study the gemara in Daf Yomi. The goyim are ignorant of Hashem and our Torah laws.
