Gay Marriage

So, I'm sad for the same sex couples of Maine - sad that their right to marry was granted over the summer and then denied by the voters yesterday. Serioulsy, isn't it 2009 people - it isn't going to hurt anyone if you let same sex couples get married. People honestly don't realize how many rights we are denied when we can't marry.

Thankfully there has been NO hullabaloo here in NH since our law passed. It goes into effect Jan 1. I can't wait to be able to say that I am MARRIED to the love of my life.

To add insult to injury some idiot wrote a letter to the editor in our local paper saying that the reason that we had an abnormally rainy summer was because God wasn't allowing the sun to shine here because gay marriage is legal.

Are you kidding me?!?!

yes it is a shame that people cant let go of their beliefs to allow people equal rights that will not in anyway affect them. Look how long Mass has had gay marriage and the sun still shines there and life goes on. I cant wait till Jan when NH goes into effect. My partner and I are very excited that we will finally be able to get married.

LOL.. Which paper was that in? I want to add it to all the other stupid letters we have had in the past.. My partner and I are also in NH and I understand what you mean about rights being stripped away. It just doesnt seem fair.

I wonder why people are so afraid--I'm convinced that fear is what it must be.

Regardless, it's a blatant and incredibly offensive civil rights violation. I would have hoped the world had come further along ...
