A friendly piece of advice to all the gay-marriage haters out there: you may want to get out of the way of the train.
Yesterday, New Hampshire became the sixth state in union to legalize gay marriage. That's right, haters...the state who gave us the best known state motto in our nation is living by their motto: Live Free or Die.
In signing the bill into law, Governor Jim Lynch who previously supported civil unions but not marriage for same-sex couples, said in a statement that he had heard "compelling arguments that a separate system is not an equal system."
I hope that message resonates with the black community, which was specifically targeted by Karl Rove & company in the 2000 election. Rove and the RNC counted on what they perceived as latent homophobia in the black community in key swing states and used gay marriage as an issue to swing the black vote (see Ohio during the 2000 election). Here's to hoping that in the future, this apt "separate but equal" comparison thwarts any further attempts to appeal to the worst in us.
