Saint Peter’s University to Honor Mayor Who Officiated at Same-Sex Marriages

Saint Peter’s University in Jersey City, N.J., recently announced that it will be honoring the pro same-sex marriage mayor of Jersey City at its commencement ceremony next month.

Mayor Steven Fulop, who not only supports same-sex marriage but officiated same-sex marriages soon after they were made legal in last October, will receive an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from the Jesuit University, according to the its website.

At the time of the judge’s decision which legalized same-sex marriages in New Jersey, Fulop was quoted as saying, “I applaud Judge Jacobson for her decision today allowing same-sex couples in New Jersey to marry and ensuring these couples have full access to federal benefits. It is incomprehensible that politicians wouldn’t be supportive of marriage equality and the equal rights of two people who love each other to seek marriage.”

On his Facebook page, Fulop said, “I am thankful for this privilege and sharing with friends because I am really excited about this. Looking forward to being the speaker at the 123rd Commencement for Saint Peter's University.”

On March 31, the Jesuit University, according to its website, hosted pro-abortion rights and pro same-sex marriage Senator Cory Booker.
