Dear Governor Christie,

Dear Governor Christie,

      I am writing this letter to tell you, you've really pissed me off. A bill to legalize gay marriage landed on your desk this morning. A bill approved by the New Jersey State Senate 42-33. You vetoed it.
     What were you thinking? Do you believe that New Jersey residents who pay taxes, own business and contribute to their communities are not entitled to something because they are homosexual? Because that is the message you have sent loud and clear. I think it is disgraceful, disgusting and in short, a pretty crappy move.
     How is it that citizens of this country can be denied rights because of who they love? Love, is a wonderful thing. It an is uplifting and joyful experience. With so much hate in this world, with  terrible things that happen everyday ( your decision included). How can you deny American citizens their right?
    Last time I checked there was a thing call "separation of church and state". We are not asking you to have churches marry homosexual couples. We are asking the state to recognize a union of two people who are so crazy about each other they want to make this commitment. To me, that doesn't seem so outlandish.
    What is outlandish is the red tape a couple who have been together for 25 years have to face when dealing with hospital visits, doctors records and insurance. As someone who has witnessed loved ones go through this grueling process, I cried when I heard your decision.And sir, I am not a cry-er.
    You say, you do things your way to benefit the people of New Jersey. Who exactly does this decision benefit? If you truly believed the dribble that comes out of your mouth you would not have vetoed that bill. You would respect and honour the Constitution. It was just last week prop 8 was considered unconstitutional. You are a disgrace to this state, your position, and to this image you try to portray.
     I will be throwing a party when your term is over. Just so you know it will be fun but you aren't invited. Doesn't feel good to be left out does it?
