Phyllis Schlafly engaged in her favorite pastime on her radio show recently, making completely unsupported assertions without any evidence whatsoever. Specifically, she claimed that many people are moving away from states that have marriage equality to get away from those awful gay people.
The Court held that because the U.S. Supreme Court had recently ordered that federal benefits be granted to same-sex couples who are married under state law, the civil union law in New Jersey was inadequate to ensure that homosexual couples in New Jersey are able to receive the same benefits as married couples.
There was no dissent from the New Jersey Court’s ruling, not even by Christie’s own judicial appointments. But many Americans are dissenting with their feet, by moving away from same-sex marriage states and into the many states that continue to recognize the value of marriage as being between only one man and one woman.
I’d ask for evidence, but this is Phyllis Schlafly we’re talking about. Probably the holy spirit told her or something.
