New Hampshire Republicans Wuss Out On Repealing Gay Marriage Law


Rest easy, New Hampshire gays: Republican state lawmakers are giving up their short-lived project to repeal same-sex marriage there. Apparently joblessness and a weak economy are just too darn important for them to pay you homosexuals any mind. (This news didn’t stop the Human Rights Campaign from scaring members into donating money: “Prop. 8 ended marriage equality in California and shocked a nation,” writes Joe Solmonese in an email that went out this morning. “I’m writing because New Hampshire could be next. Right-wing lawmakers have taken over the New Hampshire legislature – and they’re already working on four distinct bills to take the right to marry away from loving, same-sex couples.”)
