Signed by New Jersey's GOP Governor despite protests of parents and pro-family leadersPOSTED: Jan 23, 2011 On January 5 "conservative" New Jersey GOP Governor Chris Christie shocked the pro-family movement by signing a far-reaching pro-homosexual public school "anti-bullying" bill despite passionate objections from parents and religious leaders.
Over the last several weeks, MassResistance has been working with Rabbi Noson Leiter of Garden State Parents for Moral Values, which has has been coordinating an effort across New Jersey to confront this.
MassResistance was contacted by Leiter's group for help after the anti-bullying bill, Bill S2392, was passed by the New Jersey Legislature and went to Governor Christie's desk. Rabbi Noson's group has been using space on the MassResistance website for their press releases and announcements. We also worked with them on media promotion and strategy.
The new New Jersey anti-bullying law is touted by its supporters as the "toughest of its kind in the nation." It was largely written -- and tirelessly lobbied for -- by New Jersey Equality, the state's major homosexual lobbying group. Similar to the recent Massachusetts anti-bullying law, the supporters used recent teen suicides as a springboard to intimidate lawmakers into rushing it through the legislature without much challenge, using hysterical news coverage by a compliant mainstream press. And in the end, it got passed easily and signed by a so-called "conservative" GOP governor.
