Gov. Chris Christie: 'I believe marriage should be between one man and one woman'

New York passed same-sex marriage late Friday night,  marking an enormous psychological victory for the gay rights movement.

Republicans have been mostly silent in the wake of its passage, appearing unwilling to draw fire from the gay community.

Michelle Bachmann said this morning on Fox News Sunday, that “under the 10th amendment, the states have the right to set the laws that they want to set.”

Leave it to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to bluntly admit that he's “not a fan” of gay marriage on Meet the Press this morning although he said that the state will pursue civil unions for gay couples.

“I believe marriage should be between one man and one woman,” Christie said. “I wouldn’t sign a bill like the one that was in New York.”
