went like this.
Lynch... as recently as April said he believed marriage was “reserved” for one man and one woman...Now, miraculously, things have changed:
New Hampshire Governor John Lynch today said he would sign a same-sex marriage bill into law -- but not the one passed recently by both houses of the state's Legislature.Lynch may be a geeky white boy, but he can dance with all the finesse of the President.
Lynch, who had expressed opposition to same-sex marriage in the past, said the bill approved by the New Hampshire House and Senate did not do enough to assert that churches and other religious groups would not be forced to conduct "marriage ceremonies that violate their fundamental religious beliefs."Cute. Fighting for the rights of churches just after pissing in the holy water.
"If the Legislature passes this language, I will sign the same-sex marriage bill into law. If the Legislature doesn't pass these provisions, I will veto it," Lynch said. "We can and must treat both same-sex couples and people of certain religious traditions with respect and dignity. I believe this proposed language will accomplish both of these goals and I urge the Legislature to pass it."Such a thoughtful leader.
The bill's main sponsor, state Rep. Jim Splaine, said the bottom line is that Lynch supports marriage equality for gays.They can't hide their Lyin' Ayes.
