Chris Christie Doesn't Think Gay Marriage Is a Human Rights Issue

Posted by Paul Constant on Tue, Oct 8, 2013 at 2:29 PM

NJ.com says that Chris Christie was making a public appearance in a diner when a woman named Bert Bueno asked him about gay marriage. Christie, of course, has been busy painting himself as a cross-the-aisle Republican who takes a common-sense stand on issues. His answer to Bueno reveals his conservative roots are sturdy on the issue of same-sex marriage:

"Listen: Lots of different people have different views on this," Christie responded. "I think marriage should be between a man and a woman."
...
"How could you as the leader of the state speak and have such a point of view that really is in opposition to many, many people?" Bueno asked.

"Whenever you have an opinion that's in opposition to many, many people ... " Christie started to reply.
"But this is different than gun control or taxes," Bueno interjected.

"No, I don't think it is different," the governor said.

"It's a human rights issue," Bueno insisted.

"Says you," Christie responded.

That right there is the moment where Christie reveals his true self. He doesn't believe that gay rights are human rights. Remember that line in 2016, when Christie is running for president and Democrats are falling for his straight-shooter schtick. In three years, his stance on gay rights will look even more primitive than it does today.
