Maine, NH Legislators Vote For Gay Marriage

Legislators in Maine and New Hampshire have voted in favor of gay marriage.

Maine Gov. John Baldacci quickly signed his state's bill Wednesday. But New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch hasn't indicated what he'll do. Both governors are Democrats.

If New Hampshire's bill becomes law, Rhode Island would become
the sole holdout on gay marriage among the six New England states.

Iowa also allows it because of a court order. California briefly
had gay marriage, but voters later banned it.

    Alpha, I am with you on this. Has anyone noticed there was no popular vote on this? Right, just like California, it would have failed. So, legislatures, judges and governors are shoving it down our throats. Can I get support to marry my sheep? Where are my rights......

    Is it so terriable a thing to have equal rights? Playing Devil's Advocate here: Picture Adam and Steve. Steve is in an accident/medical condition. Adam has no legal right to visitation. Steve's family could shut Adam out of the picture. Say Steve passes away, Adam has no right to Death benefits, unless an airtight will. Steve's things would go to his next of kin. Who's going to pay the doctor bills? Steve wasnt covered. Adam's job doesn't acknowledge them as a couple/family unit, but he's got great insurance. Marriage. Its a word, its not an institution, its basic rights that married couples take for granted.

    Dave, what does God say about it? Same thing us Bible holy Rollers say! Some day you will eat your words! God will have his way in the end, no matter what you think say or do. This country will fall and fall fast once this stuff gets going like viris. Just wait and see.
