Christie has pissed off FRC - It's one of those days

Peter Sprigg - FRC
Family Research Council has weighed in on Chris Christie's refusal to continue futile efforts to oppose marriage equality in New Jersey. 
  • The people overwhelmingly support equality.
  • The legislature supports equality.
  • The judicial branch mandates equality.
Nevertheless:
Family Research Council is disappointed by Gov. Christie's decision to withdraw the state's appeal of a lower court order redefining marriage. The fact that the Supreme Court refused to stay the lower court's order is no reason not to litigate this important issue to a final conclusion on the merits.
These folks really are dense. They wouldn't spend $5 to help a homeless person but they expect Christie to waste state resources in a futile fight to oppose a decision that the court has already indicated, unanimously, that they support.
"We are glad that Gov. Christie vetoed the legislature's attempt to redefine marriage, and that he was initially willing to defend the state's marriage law in court. However, conservatives are looking for leaders who will sustain their commitment to unchanging principles. Combined with his signing of a radical bill to outlaw even voluntary sexual orientation change efforts with minors, today's action has given conservatives serious pause about Gov. Christie's reliability," concluded Sprigg. 
 In other words, don't expect Family Research Council to support your presidential ambitions. FRC is not a "conservative" organization. FRC is a "religious conservative" organization and their is a difference. I am guessing that Christie figures that the only way to actually win the presidency (past the primaries) is to buck the mullahs. Otherwise, he's just the next Romney led to the slaughter.
