    Thumbs up Good day: Hate Crimes bill passes house, NH passes gay marriage, pends governor stamp

    The Hate Crimes bill just passed in the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 249 - 175. The House Republicans sure worked hard to prove that they are hateful and out of touch today. Witness the new Marilyn Musgrave: North Carolina's Rep. Virginia Foxx.

    Also, by a vote of 13 - 11, the New Hampshire State Senate approved a same-sex marriage bill today. The House already passed the bill. The Democratic Governor, John Lynch, hasn't said what he'll do yet. Come on, Governor Lynch. Do you really want to be remembered for vetoing this bill?

    Maine is voting on the equal marriage bill today...it better pass! I think our governor would have no problem signing it.

    New Hampshire governor signs gay marriage law - Los Angeles Times


    CONCORD, N.H. — New Hampshire's governor has signed legislation making the state the sixth to allow gay marriage.

    Gov. John Lynch was surrounded by cheering supporters of the move as he signed the three bills about an hour after the key vote on the legislation in the House.

    The law will take effect in January, exactly two years after the state legalized civil unions. New Hampshire joins Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, Vermont and Iowa in recognizing same-sex marriages, though opponents hope to overturn Maine's law with a public vote.

    Lynch demanded -- and got -- language protecting the rights of religious opponents of gay marriage before signing the bills.
