New Hampshire Group To Stop Republican Lawmakers

Written by 

A bipartisan group of New Hampshire residents, business owners and civic leaders of New Hampshire decides to launch a campaign to stop lawmakers who want to repeal equality marriage.

Standing Up for New Hampshire Families leaders told reporters that Republican lawmakers should focus on helping businesses create jobs and not on repealing the gay marriage law.

Last Tuesday, the House Judiciary Committee voted to replace the marriage by civil unions which would give exactly the same rights as the marriage except that it would not be called 'marriage'.

But attention, this law would let anyone refuse to recognize the unions. It also would allow anyone to discriminate against such couples in employment, housing and public accommodations based on religious or moral beliefs as reports an Associated Press.
