Watch: Chris Christie: 'I Am Not A Fan Of Same-Sex Marriage'

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was on Meet The Press this is how he responded when host David Gregory turned the conversation to marriage equality:

"I am not a fan of same-sex marriage. It’s not something that I support. I believe marriage should be between one man and one woman. That's my view and that'll be the view of our state because I wouldn't sign a bill like the one that was in New York."

Watch his appearance, AFTER THE JUMP. The bit about marriage comes in at 13:03.

  1. Well, that's not the view of the state as a whole. He might not sign it, but 1) the NJ Supreme Court may require it in 2012 or 2013, and 2) at this point Christie would not be re-elected in 2013; his approval is about 43% now.

  2. The part that really pisses me off is when he got angry when he was questioned about sending his kids to private school. He said it is nobody's business, It doesn't hurt anyone else and it's a personal matter between him and his family.

    Can someone please ask him why he views gay marriage differently? It seems to me that those same principles should apply.

  3. Christie is completely lacking in any humility. He's also reminds me of every bully I ever known - pushy, arrogant, ignorant and proud of all three. Marriage Equality will come to NJ too.

  5. I'm sure he also isn't a fan of the Packers, but I'll bet he respects their right to exist.

  8. Doesn’t matter what you think, CC. You were elected to represent the desires of your constituents.

  9. Another politician who's forgotten what a representative form of government is.

    Apparently whatever his opinion is shall rule: "That's my view and that'll be the view of our state." Wonder if he can spell f-e-u-d-a-l-i-s-m.

  11. He may not be a fan of same-sex marriage but he's obviously a fan of all you can eat pancakes.

  12. CHRIS CHRISTIE IS VERY, VERY FAT! His risk for heart attack or stroke is probably very, very high! He's obviously not as smart as he thinks he is.

  13. Uh... NJ civil unions do not come burdened by the "religious exemptions" stuck onto SSM in NY. That makes them, in some cases, better than marriage.

    This hostility to duly-entered-into marriages from his neighboring state when his own state is REQUIRED to view those marriages as legitimate civil unions strikes me as coming pretty close to an impeachable offense.

  14. I am not a resident of NJ and know very little about CC. How bad was his Democratic opponent that this glutton got elected in the first place? I mean this guy is not just fat, he's morbidly obese. How could anyone justify voting for him to control a state when clearly he has zero self control?

  16. I don't understand what he means by "That's my view and that'll be the view of our state because I wouldn't sign a bill like the one that was in New York."

    Wtf is he smoking? It's not like her owns the state of NJ. LOL

  17. Can some of you please find another way to criticize him other than calling him fat? That is shallow and offensive.

    Posted by: J.P. | Jun 26, 2011 10:45:26 PM

  18. He's angling for national recognition, despite being very moderate overall (pro-abortion at one point). He also knows that the NJ SC will dutifully take this matter out of the hands of pols in the next few years (they do all the controversial stuff in NJ). So, easy for him to say.

  19. My goodness, Another example of raging homophobia in the African American Community!

  20. Interesting how he doesn't try to make an actual argument. He just asserts his position imperiously. I actually think he is doing a lot of the right things that need doing in NJ but on gay marriage, Christie won't have the last word.

  21. Don't you love it when a politician [falsely] states he has the power to force his views on everyone?

  22. What an arrogant political pig.

  23. That's fine. We'll just have to get your self-righteous @ss voted out of there.

  24. the Republican establishment pushed gay marriage through in NY...Christie is on the wrong side of the (R) establishment and will eventually eat these words too.

  25. Like I've said many times before, the hateful ones are always the ugliest ones, inside and out.
