I am a student at William Paterson University in New Jersey. For one of my classes, I had to create an action poroject about sexism. I recently discovered that New Jersey does not support Gay and Lesbian Marriages. I am starting a petition as my action. Once I recieve a lot of names, I will send it to the appropriate source down in Trenton.
The ACLU believes that anti-gay marriage laws violate the \"Full Faith and Credit\" clause of the U.S. Constitution, which states: \"Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records and Judicial Proceedings of every State.\" The idea behind this clause was to make sure that in a nation where people could freely more from state to state, each state would respect each others laws. Moreover, the ACLU believes these laws violate equal protection, since they seek to discriminate against lesbian and gay Americans based on homophobia. The laws also violate the right to interstate travel under Supreme Court precedent, which has held that a state cannot discriminate against people entering its territory by imposing unconstitutional conditions on the right to enter.
Students of a Racism and Sexism class at William Paterson University!
