“I think it’s a great day for civil rights,” Fulop said. “We couldn’t be more excited.”
The nation’s high court ruled 5-4 that states cannot ban gay marriage, in a decision released this morning. Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for the majority, said the reasons marriage is “fundamental” under the U.S. Constitution “apply with equal force to same-sex couples.”
Elizabeth Schedl, of Hudson Pride Connections Center, emailed a statement that included five exclamation points. The LGBT group is based in Jersey City.
“Today marks one of the greatest days in history for our community,” said Elizabeth Schedl, of Hudson Pride Connections Center in Jersey City. “We are thrilled that the Supreme Court values the importance of marriage equality and understands how everyone deserves these rights.”
