Though New Hampshire doesn’t recognize gay marriages, the House struck down an amendment
today that would have defined marriage as being between a man and a woman.
CONCORD, N.H. --The New Hampshire House voted overwhelmingly Tuesday against a proposed amendment to the state constitution to ban gay marriage.
The late afternoon vote was 207-125
Conservatives are so afraid of the GLBT community they need to add amendments to the constitution to prevent things that are already not legal. It’s really disheartening to see my fellow Americans so lost when it comes to understanding the principals of this country.
Specific safeguards were put into place to prevent the majority from overriding the minority, which some people do not understand. They feel that the majority has no voice anymore, but that simply isn’t true. The majority does have a voice in all things that pertain to them. Who someone else marries has no effect on them, so they should not have the right to control this part of another person’s life
