Dear New Hampshire…THIS SUCKS!

Yuck. So much for the "live free" portion of the state slogan.

New Hampshire's House Judiciary Committee held a hearing last night regarding HB 1264, which is a bill that would allow businesses that do not support marriage equality to DENY services to same-sex couples - or any kind, for that matter - based on their religious values, AND would protect them from a civil claim of action for such!

It reads:

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person, including a business owner or employee thereof, shall be required to provide services, accommodations, advantages, facilities, goods, or privileges to an individual if the request is related to the solemnization, celebration, or promotion of a marriage and providing such services, accommodations, advantages, facilities, goods, or privileges would be a violation of the person’s conscience or religious faith.

A person’s refusal to provide services, accommodations, advantages, facilities, goods, or privileges in accordance with this section shall not create any civil claim or cause of action or result in any state action to penalize or withhold benefits from such person.

Absolutely despicable that something this ignorant and discriminatory would even get as far to warrant a hearing!

Here's hoping that the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 knocks this out before it can go any further!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!

    But, where was Ashton Kutcher when all this was going on? That's all I want to know. It's obviously 100% his fault. Or maybe Russell Brand had something to do with it.



  2. 2

    yeah, "EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!" including freedom of conscience



  3. 3

    Being from NH this is quite embarrassing. i thought we were better then this



  4. 4

    it's not discrimination. Just as you wouldn't promote homophobia, they wouldn't promote same sex marriage out of their conscience or faith



  5. 5

    yeah……down with the gay agenda…..this country has more important things to deal with than men who want to do each others asses…and wants to make sure everyone knows about it.

    so according to you gays and lez must have their RIGHTS other people not so much,, just fuck them, PEEREX YOU ARE A VILE hypocrit

    Given the bill doesn’t even specify “same-sex” marriage, it would hypothetically protect the right of “conscience” to discriminate against any kind of marriage, including interracial, binational, and interdenominational couples. For this reason, it’s likely this bill would be preempted by the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, among other nondiscrimination statutes.

    So many Christians, so few lions.

    Just to point out, in NH every bill gets a hearing, regardless if it's a good bill or a bad bill. And every vote has to come to the floor and have an up or down vote. There are 424 legislators and all are volunteers (citizen legislature). There are literally hundreds of bills and any of the 424 can bring a bill.

    This is what we need on a national level. No more special privileges for gays.



  11. 11

    im ashamed

    Every business owner has the right to decide what goes on in his or her business. So, in effect, some of the Civil Rights Amendments are unconstitutional since it forces an individual to do something they do not want to do. All this gets mashed up with the extremes of Jim Crow and Love Thy Neighbor so that the actual rights of free people are no longer clear.

    Re: Mad Dog – Special privileges? I thought they (gays) only wanted the same marriage rights that heteros have. Nothing like legislating a sanctioned prejudice clause. On the flip side, refusniks can fully experience the drop in cash business.

    "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone." I support gay marriage and equal rights, and also support the freedom of businesses to serve who they want. Drop in cash business– exactly. They don't have MY patronage either.
