Bruce Springsteen Speaks Out for New Jersey Marriage Equality Bill


In a statement on his website, Bruce Springsteen has spoken out in support of the marriage equality bill scheduled for a vote in the New Jersey senate this week.

Said Bruce: "Like many of you who live in New Jersey, I've been following the
progress of the marriage-equality legislation currently being
considered in Trenton," Springsteen wrote on his web page. "I've long
believed in and have always spoken out for the rights of same sex
couples and fully agree with Governor Corzine when he writes that 'The
marriage-equality issue should be recognized for what it truly is — a
civil rights issue that must be approved to assure that every citizen
is treated equally under the law.'"
