Granite State house rocks marriage equality

by Jeremy Hooper

new-hampshireBy a 186-179 vote, the New Hampshire House has unexpectedly passed marriage equality legislation:

CONCORD, N.H.—The House has voted to make New Hampshire the third state allowing gays to marry two years after they granted them the right to enter into civil unions.

Now the measure moves on to the N.H Senate, where it's future is unclear, and then to Gov. John Lynch, who has announced non-support for marriage equality. So to say the battle is uphill would be an understatement. But then again, the far-right's overstatements have managed to catch support for decades -- so stranger (and far less truthful) things have certainly happened.

Unadorned ring fingers crossed!

I recently just got back from a visit to Boston & New York and as much as I'm lucky that I was born and raised in San Francisco - news like this plus my visit has turn my 5 year plan to move to the East Coast to a 2 year plan!

Alonzo... sounds like you really do have the right idea. I love how each of these announcements just makes our Surpremes squirm even more. Will they be able to wiggle out of this one.
Some say they won't vote for marriage because they might be impeached..... I say if they dont, we will do our d**** to see they are!
