In the first ever gay marriage in the state of New Jersey, Newark Mayor Cory Booker officiated the marriage between two of his friends at City Hall at 12:01 a.m. this morning. Following the law, Booker asked whether there was anyone present who objected to the union of the two men. Sadly, a gigantic douchebag fundamentalist Christian looking to disrupt the ceremony started shouting “this is unlawful in the eyes of God!”.
Booker’s response was nothing short of brilliant:
Ben Cohen is the editor and founder of The Daily Banter. He lives in Washington DC where he does podcasts, teaches Martial Arts, and tries to be a good father. He would be extremely disturbed if you took him too seriously.
