Garden State Equality (GSE) is a civic group that supports equality for the LGBT community in New Jersey. Started in 2004 by Steven Goldstein, a college professor and activist, it is run today by 25 year old Christian Fuscarino. It’s powerful, with politicians and news media always at their events.
GSE has involved itself in protests of people, both business professionals and politicians, who they think are on the wrong side of LGBT equality.
For instance, GSE’s last protest was against Jack Kelly, an Ocean County Freeholder trying to get a cushy state job, seemingly to pad his pension. A dozen years ago he wanted to deny pension benefits to the lesbian partner of the dying Laurel Hester, a sheriff’s officer, stating it would “hurt the sanctity of marriage.” Before that, GSE protested Scott Garrett, a New Jersey Republican Congressman over a comment he denies making.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County News, Opinion, Tommy DeSeno | Tags: A Capital Guidance Company, Asbury Park, Garden State Equality, Gay rights, LGBT rights, Madison Marquette, Monmouth County News, Opinion, Sheikh Muhammad Taqi Usmani, Steven Goldstein, Tom DeSeno, Tommy DeSeno, Usmani | 5 Comments »

In Asbury Park, all the boardwalk buildings including Convention Hall, The Stone Pony and the Wonder Bar are owned by a Middle Eastern company named Capital Guidance, by way of a holding company they formed called Madison Marquette. Capital Guidance operates Madison Marquette from their offices in Reston Virginia, amid the fastest growing Islamic concentration in the country.
Capital Guidance employs a Sharia Advisory Board chaired by a Pakistani Mufti, Muhammad Taqi Usmani. When it comes to human rights, this scrivener of that area’s Sharia laws is a monster. He has a 30 year career of jailing gays, beating women for being raped and like atrocities, such as supporting modern slavery.admin | Filed under: Asbury Park, Monmouth County News, War on terror | Tags: Asbury Park, Capital Guidance, Madison Marquette, Memorial Day, Monmouth County News, Sharia Law, Sheik Muhammad Taqi Usmani, Tom DeSeno, Tommy DeSeno, War on terror | 2 Comments »
