New Jersey gay marriage ruling

So, apparently the NJ Supreme Court has ordered the state to create gay marriage in all but name. The First Things blogger deplores the ruling here, mostly on legal grounds.

But what's especially jaw-dropping to me is the hypocrisy of former governor Jim McGreevey:

And just two years ago,
Jersey's Legislature passed, and Gov. Jim McGreevey signed, the Domestic Partnership Act. This equalized some of the economic and social distinctions between marriage and same-sex unions but not all - and, as the court admits, it "explicitly acknowledged that same-sex couples cannot marry."


McGreevey To Wed If N.J. Lawmakers Allow Gay Marriage

So this means he was governing in bad faith all along. What chumps the "values" activists who lobbied him must feel like now.
