NH's Smith misplaces 'protect marriage' playbook, admits he wants civil unions gone too

by Jeremy Hooper

When the effort to repeal marriage equality in New Hampshire starts heating up, you're going to hear all kinds of people saying that the rollback is all about the institution of marriage -- nothing more, nothing less. DON'T. BUY. THAT. LIE. FOR. EVEN. A. SECOND. Because here's the state's "pro-family" leader, Kevin Smith of Cornerstone Policy Research (a major NOM ally), full-out admitting his desire to not only roll back same-sex marriages, but also the basic protections that come with the prior civil unions compromise:

"Ultimately what we'd like to see is it revert back to what it was prior to civil unions,
and that you just had a marriage statute and not to mess with that in any way"
-Kevin Smith, Cornerstone Action

Hey Kevin: Point to even one mess -- EVEN. ONE. MESS. -- that the inclusive marriage system (much less the prior civil unions system) has brought to the Live Free or Die State. You won't. Because you can't.

But you keep on admitting that it's the basic rights and protection you're really gunning. Our public opinion polls stiffen up just listening to it.
