Anti-gay rumblings in New Hampshire

Here's a great quote from a David Bates, a Republican state representative in New Hampshire about the passage of a same sex marriage bill -- signed by the governor -- that went into effect on January 1: “For there to be peace in our society, we need to decide this issue once and for all."

Translation: the issue needs to be decided the way I want it to be decided.  The legislature has already decided the issue.  Once and for all.

That hasn't stopped some anti-equality folks from getting non-binding referenda in the ballots of their cities and towns.  The results won't mean a thing.  They'll just let LGBT people know that a percentage of the population in certain towns consider them second class citizens.

 And people wonder why we call it hate.
