URGENT! STOP NEW HAMPSHIRE STATE LEGISLATURE! 3


Marriage Equality USA logo

While the country is distracted by the New Hampshire primary, New Hampshire’s state legislature is swiftly moving to abolish gay marriageThey could vote on the issue as soon as this Thursday.

Craig Stowell is a New Hampshire native who recently testified at the New Hampshire State House to ask the legislature not to pass HB 437, the bill that would abolish marriage equality. But Craig isn’t gay — in fact, he’s a straight married Marine, and a conservative Republican.

Craig knows firsthand how damaging it can be when the government says it’s okay to treat the LGBT community like second-class citizens. Craig’s brother Calvin was horribly bullied as a kid because he’s gay. “There were nights that I worried I may wake up and he wouldn’t be there any longer; crushed by the misery he was forced to endure,” Craig says.

So Craig started a petition on Change.org asking the New Hampshire legislature to reject HB 437. The vote could come in a matter of daysPlease click here to sign Craig’s petition right now — your signature will be delivered to the New Hampshire legislature immediately.

Since New Hampshire legalized marriage equality in 2009, more than 1,800 loving same-sex couples have been married. Polls show that a large majority of New Hampshire residents support that right — 62%, according to a recent poll from the University of New Hampshire.

“When my wife Berta and I were married, Calvin was right there by my side as my best man,” Craig says. “I want the opportunity to be his best man when he finds the person he wants to marry. With your help, I know we can ensure that freedom will still be there when he does.”

New Hampshire legislators may think they can sneak in HB 437 during the ruckus surrounding the New Hampshire primary, but they need to know that their actions are being watched and that people in New Hampshire and around the country won’t stand for this vicious step backward.

Time is short — click here right now to sign Craig’s petition demanding that the New Hampshire legislature reject HB 437, the bill that would abolish marriage equality.

Thanks for being a change-maker,

The Biggest Loser at Saturday Night’s GOP Debate

Republican candidates hit the debate stage in New Hampshire last night, just a few days before the state’s primary—and though frontrunner Mitt Romney was expected to take a beating, his rivals failed to land any blows. Rick Santorum, who lost the Iowa caucuses by only eight votes, went after Romney first, dismissing him as a job-cutting venture capitalist and CEO, but the attempt fell flat. In fact, writes The Daily Beast’s Howard Kurtz, Santorum was the night’s biggest loser, failing to land a single memorable moment and forfeiting the chance to build on his virtual tie in Iowa. Plus, Paul Begala, Michelle Cottle, and more weigh in on the debate; also, watch video highlights.

Sunday Morning Message …For the Instruction of Rick Santorum


Rick Santorum, Jack of Hearts - Cartoon

I have been hearing Rick Santorum talk on and on about his catholic upbringing, how it is the “way things are the way things are supposed to be and how he tells one audience he would not turn his religious opinions into our laws…and, then, tells another that he would.  You know how politicians are:  Tell an audience what it wants to hear, what will secure their vote. Rick, it’s a sad way to make a living.  Yesterday, as I thought of you and your campaign, God lead me the part of the Bible which talks about righteousness as God sees it.  I hope you will read today’s post and be changed by it. God so loved the people you persecute that He sent His Son to die for their sins, long before even their known relatives were born.  As a child, I was taught, “Jesus Loves Me, Yes, I Know, For the Bible Tells Me So.”  No mortal man has a lock on God or Jesus. We are ALL sinners and come short of the Glory of God.  Rick, you seem to be a very religious man.  Do you have any inkling how the Bible says God sees your righteousness?

The Bible says that our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment.
