N.H. Approves Gay Marriage - June 4th 2009, 12:00 AM

Excellent news! Way to continue the tide, NH. Make that 5 states for New England that have allowed gay marriage, hopefully RI and the rest of the U.S. follows suit.

Do you honestly want that answer from people who are supportive of gay marriage? Why go looking for insults and offense?

I think it's great of NH to legalize gay marriage. One step at a time, society has to stop being so closed minded and ignorant. Everyone should have equal rights, and no one should have the right to say that their views on marriage should be applied to everyone.

That's wonderful! After what happened in California I lost hope that the US was going to change anytime soon, but it seems some states are on the right track. I'm really glad to hear this.

I guess all we can hope for is slow, small steps. The big states will get there eventually.

This is exciting but not surprising.

Now when, say, Texas passes a law making it illegal to deny same sex couples marriage.. I'll throw a party.

So conservative New England legalizes gay marriage and so-called "liberal" California makes it illegal?! Blahhh, what is happening to the world?? I'm happy we're taking small steps toward tolerance and equality, but come on California, get with the freaking program!!

Conservative? New England is by no means a conservative place, at all. If anything, it is probably the most liberal area in the U.S.

I was going off of what was written in the article. But yeah, my point is that California is supposed to be liberal state and yet there are a bunch of states that are wayyy ahead of us politically and socially. Did we get a bunch of Texans transferring here because of work or something? What happened?

New Hampshire is the only state in New England that tends to go the other way, hence why it is an important stomping ground in elections.

California is an interesting case. I would figure that it would be more open to the idea of gay marriage, but I guess not. It's just you have cities like Berkeley, San Francisco, etc. that are extremely liberal.
