New Hampshire house votes down proposal to ban same-sex marriageMe thinks if the Righties try to use same sex marriage as a wedge issue this year with all the other horrific stuff going on in this country they are in for a BIG surprise. Hear that Gov. Willard?
The New Hampshire House voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to defeat a proposed constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. The late afternoon vote was 207-125 against an amendment, which would have added a definition of marriage as a union of one woman and one man to the state's Bill of Rights.
A new poll suggests gays and lesbians are gaining greater acceptance in California, even if same-sex marriage isn't.You can't turn back the clock. Moral people, you know the real Pro-family types, really do not advocate discrimination against people. This whole adoption thing that the "Christians" are now trying to pull over on the American people is just not going to fly.
The governor also vetoed HB 148, sponsored by Christensen, which would allow biological parents to terminate their child's relationship with third parties, such as step parents, grandparents or gay partners.
It's spreading even in the most conservative states!
Huntsman said that in some cases, those third parties might have been involved in raising the child since infancy.
Amazingly, in our own state, where same sex couples can legally get married, only one candidate for Governor has come out for marriage equality: Deval Patrick.
New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer has become the first candidate for governor in the history of the Empire State to publicly endorse same-sex marriage - even though he is currently in court defending a state law banning gay unions.
“It’s surprising on the one hand, but also reassuring,” Elder says of the results. “Gays and lesbians who aspire towards the symbolic and real material benefits of marriage are no different from other people who aspire towards domestic stability and material comfort. They are middle class; they want the stuff of a middle class lifestyle. These are not people who are ripping the fabric of America.”
And there's so much more!
