New Hampshire Victory!

June 3, 2009

Governor Lynch signed legislation today to legalize same sex marriage.  Another victory for marriage equality!  From the Washington Post:

The state senate passed the bill by a vote of 14 to 10, and the house followed later with a vote of 198 to 176. Lynch immediately signed the bill, which included revisions he had insisted upon. The changes give protections from lawsuits for organizations that refuse to participate in same-sex ceremonies on religious grounds.

I still think the law will face a legal challenge soon on the grounds that employers will be able to legally discriminate against gay couples.
