"We're far from dead - in the long and winding road in this marriage equality battle, anything and everything has happened. On an issue like marriage equality, which thousands of key players in the Democratic party support so passionately, you predict at your own peril. Remember, earlier this month, we won a major victory in the Senate Judiciary Committee when no one thought the bill would even go to any committee. We call on Senator Codey and Speaker Roberts to bring the bill to a vote before their respective houses, and in the meantime, we will continue to work day and night for victory soon."

-- Steven Goldstein, chair of Garden State Equality, after New Jersey Assembly Speaker Joe Roberts threw the state's marriage equality bill back to the Senate telling them to pass it and the Assembly would do the same without a committee vote.
