Homophobe Massive FAIL – New Hampshire House Rejects Gay Marriage Ban By Wide Margin
The New Hampshire House of Representatives has rejected CACR 28 which defined marriage in that state by saying it can only be between a man and a woman. It was rejected by a wide margin, 201-135, short of a simple majority and far below the three-fifths majority — 238 votes — it needed to advance to the Senate. Sponsors tried to delay a vote on the bill until March 17, so local voters could weigh in on petitions at town meeting that ask for a popular vote on the amendment. “All we’re trying to do here is put this on the ballot,” Rep. David Bates, R-Windham, (Bates = jerkoff you know.) arguing voters should have their say. His effort to delay a vote fell short on a 191-148 vote. The House also rejected another bill, HB 1590, by a vote of 210-109 which would have repealed the state’s marriage equality law.
Too bad, bigots.
