This is what happens when you vote on issues of human rights...

From today's Albany TImes Union:
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — More than 1,500 married, New Hampshire gay couples could be placed into a classification all their own if lawmakers succeed next year in repealing the state's two-year-old law legalizing same-sex unions.
Legislation to repeal gay marriage is one of the highly charged issues left over from the just-completed legislative session that must be acted on early next year. The two proposed repeal bills would not affect gay marriages before repeal, but would stop new same-sex marriages.
This absurd legislative ping-pong game is what happens when basic human rights are left up to the legislative process, as I argued here.
