Springsteen Announces Support for Same-Sex Marriage in New Jersey

We're not very big here with celebrity endorsements, but when Jim's favorite all-time entertainer speaks out, we couldn't pass it up.  Bruce Springsteen, still rocking strong at the age of 60, posted an announcement on his website stating his support for the legalization of same-sex marriage in his beloved home state of New Jersey.  That's why he's "The Boss," he gets it.  For many years, he has visited and pulled together support for food banks in the towns he plays in, but this is the first time we know of that he has spoken out so strongly for the LGBT community.  Bruuuuuuuuuce!

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.
