  1. Let’s hope this appalling law is overturned, and soon. Marriage = one man and one woman.

      Error. Flytipping detected.

    2. Straight people complaining about marriage equality is like a fat twunt on a diet complaining because someone else is eating a donut – it doesn’t affect you, dearie, it doesn’t alter you or change you or have any effect on you at all – and you don’t get to say that someone else can’t do it.

      1. If you don’t support gay marriage, then don’t marry a homosexual. Imagine how you would feel if people you don’t even know decided you didn’t have the right to eat shellfish or worse yet bacon (both of these acts are forbidden in the Bible, in the same book that mentions homosexuality). You would must likely be outrage, how dare other people decide what you can do with your life.

      1. My apologies, that comment was intended for Jean

    4. Sorry, Jean, its our time to win. You had yours and your lot blew it.

      Its all going in our favour.

    Pink News, be so kind as to get rid of this annoying person called Jean who has nothing better to do but troll gay sites. I suspect it has some serious psychological issues going on and is in dire need of treatment.

    1. It’s probably Keith.

      1. I’d say with certainty its Keith.

        The give away will be when Stu shows up, its drives Keith *cough* Jean mad :)

      2. No, the spelling’s too good. And Keith always, always responds (unfortunately).

        1. Yeah, I see where you’re coming from. You might be right. Although Keith does like to think himself some Machiavellian super genius, and has chnage his name before – but was “so clever” he forgot who he was supported to be and then launched himself at Stu in the usual way. LOL!

    What mean-spirited and horrible people there truly are in the Republican party in the US. Unfortunately I can’t see a situation where this doesn’t pass. The Republicans are very often extremely united on issues such as this and it’s hard to imagine that Governor Lynch’s veto will be sustained.

    Let’s hope that these miserable gits get voted out big time in November and that the Democrats reinstate the law. If not then this will almost certainly end up in the courts.

    Just goes to show though that the fight is never truly won. Once we achieve our rights we have to battle to hold on to them. The Republicans in Iowa are attempting to overturn marriage there too and it’s only a Democratic state senate that prevents it. if that goes then gay Iowans will probably lose the right to marry also. Sad days but the fight goes on.

    1. Take heart. The Prop 8 federal case show us that the federal courts take a dim view of anyone who takes away established rights of a targeted minority. Even IF the republican succeed, they will lose in the courts.

    I’ll bet you anything that Jean is a scruffy out of work no hoper who has never been married. Jean the person who couldn’t get a feel up in a scrum. Jean the troll with nothing but boring statements that say. Hi I’m Jean and I am a troll idiot begging for attention. OK love you’d have had your five minutes now do us all a big favour and get lost.

    Where do I sign?

  6. This whole thing is political masturbation. Even if it passes the legislature the governor is going to veto it. And they DON’T have the votes to override the veto.

    Just another example of teabaggers gone wild in New Hampshire. They came into office promising to focus on jobs and the economy and they’ve done neither. These bums are in for a surprise come November when we vote a lot of them out.

      If all Republicans vote on party lines then they do have the votes to override. They have 74% of the seats in the lower house and 80% in the senate. They only need 67% to override. You also can’t assume that every Democrat will vote to uphold equal marriage. They need to get 4 Republican state senators to vote to uphold the veto and keep all 5 Democrats on side. It’s not impossible but it’s also not going to be easy.

  7. The article didn’t mention that polls show 62% of New Hampshire residents approve of marriage equality. So these teabaggers are not following the will of the people, they are following their own bigoted agenda. They will pay for that come November.

  8. Craig won’t stop defending his brother

    At long last, a truly wonderful example of the ‘family values’ traditionalists drone on about!

  9. Let’s hope they suceed. The marines words really are inspriational!

    I’ll keep everything crossed for a victory!

  10. his brother is gorgeous, i’m moving to new hampshire!

  11. Is this what NH guys look like? I’ll have to make a detour on my next trip to NY!!

  12. The will of the people is what counts. Not the agenda of a few phobes from the republican party. It is so sad here in Texas with the idiots we have in Austin. I am ashamed to have been born here and the future doesn’t look any brighter for gay rights.
