Civil Unions Not Enough for New Jersey Gays
Activists call for marriage.

On the day New Jersey made civil unions legal, homosexual activists made clear what they really want is nothing short of “marriage.”

Garden State Equality Chairman Steven Goldstein announced a campaign to redefine marriage to include same-sex couples within two years.

“Civil unions are not marriage,” he told the New York Daily News. “Marriage is the only currency of commitment the world understands.”

Len Deo, president of the New Jersey Family Policy Council, said gay activists are not satisfied with “just getting benefits.”

“What they want is total acceptance of their lifestyle,” he told CitizenLink. “The only way they can get total acceptance is if they can redefine marriage so that it is no longer gender-specific.”

The move comes as no surprise. Caleb H. Price, an issues analyst for Focus on the Family, said the New Jersey campaign is part of a national strategy mapped out last year.

“Basically gay activists are saying openly what we have said all along they were saying,” Price said. “They will settle for nothing less than a full-fledged redefinition of marriage to include homosexual couples.”
