The fight to finally reverse the "gay marriage" law in New Hampshire is coming to a head. Bill 437 is now before the NH Legislature and will be taken up and voted on within the next several weeks.
New Hampshire's constitutional amendment process is very difficult,requiring a 2/3 vote of the Legislature just to get it started. The Republican leadership has promised they will let it go through. Rep David Bates has taken up this campaign and is spearheading it.
There are definitely the votes in both houses to pass it. But the Governor has promised to veto it, so the trick is getting the 2/3 votes to override his veto.
On paper, the votes are there to both pass it and override the Governor's veto. But the lobbying campaign, pressure, and intimidation from the homosexual lobby is gearing up. It's up to the people to keep some of the mushy Republicans from caving in to that.
A website with the Orwellian name of "Standing Up for New Hampshire Families," is the public face of the homosexual lobby to fight this bill. The group is having a press conference on Tuesday at 10 am in the State House to declare that the fight is over because the sentiment is "really" on their side.
Pro-family people have decided to have a rally right after homoseuxal lobby's press conference, at noon right in front of the State House in Concord to show the Legislature that the citizens are very serious in their support traditional marriage and aren't taking this lightly all.

Any way to make it easier to disbar activist judges?
I have lost hope that Americans have enough common sense to overturn hideous things like gay “marriage”. I PRAY I’m wrong.
This is going to be an interesting fight. This is an issue that if you can get it to the voters you can win which is something social liberals in both parties can’t stand for.
Wanna see the US in the Bible? Just read Jeremiah and Lamentations.
I feel a little bit like Jeremiah regarding my “people”.
Never underestimate the Gaystapo’s goon strong-arm tactics.
