The New Jersey Senate will be voting on a gay marriage bill on Thursday.    The bill squeaked its way though a state senate committee by just one vote on Monday.  The following is from Bruce Springsteen’s website-

A BRIEF STATEMENT FROM BRUCE
“Like many of you who live in New Jersey, I’ve been following the progress of the marriage-equality legislation currently being considered in Trenton. I’ve long believed in and have always spoken out for the rights of same sex couples and fully agree with Governor Corzine when he writes that, “The marriage-equality issue should be recognized for what it truly is — a civil rights issue that must be approved to assure that every citizen is treated equally under the law.” I couldn’t agree more with that statement and urge those who support equal treatment for our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters to let their voices be heard now.”
