Panel recommends marriage in N.J.

Posted on 10 Dec 2008 at 11:23am

The Star-Ledger News at NJ.com has posted this report on findings just released by the New Jersey Civil Union Review Commission:

“New Jersey should enact a law allowing gay marriage and waste no time passing it because the state’s civil unions law fails to adequately protect same-sex couples, a report to be released today concludes.”

Read the full report here.

The 13-member panel was created to review the impact of the state’s civil unions law passed in 2006 to basically give same-sex couples the same rights as married couples without using the word “marriage.” The panel’s report says that denying same-sex couples full marriage rights is as bad as racial segrgation: “Separate treatment was wrong then and it is just as wrong now.”
