NH Cornerstone Action Pushes for Gay Marriage Repeal: GOP says Kiss Off

January 20, 2011

Cornerstone Action

Mormon NOM wannabe Cornerstone Action, another champion of  ‘traditional values and family’ is disappointed that their push for New Hampshire’s Republicans to repeal same-sex marriage has fallen on deaf ears.  Apparently, the NH legislature is more concerned with the budget and economy than taking away civil rights.

While I’m here, I’m starting to get tired of referring to right-wing extremist views as ‘traditional’.  Their definition of traditional values and traditional marriage isn’t a legitimate definition to begin with.  It’s purely made up!  Additionally, their definition is anything but traditional.  They imply traditional is descriptive of Christian morales and marriage.  First, the concept and practice of Marriage is FAR older than the Bibles, second, Christian values can be summed up succinctly as love they neighbor and do to others as you would have done to you.  Right-Wing extremists like Cornerstone Action do NOT represent either of those truly Christian values.

Opponents of New Hampshire’s same-sex marriage law will try to get the 2009 statute repealed this year, despite learning that the issue is not on the agenda set by the leaders of the Republican-dominated House of Representatives. The House leadership will focus efforts this year on the state budget, education funding, pension reform, parental rights and the economy, Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt said in announcing the priorities for the new legislative session.

Repeal of the same-sex marriage law “is not on the agenda,” he commented at the State House news conference.

Cornerstone Action, the conservative organization that led the effort to defeat the bill two years ago, is not giving up the effort, however. House rules require all bills to be reported and voted on and the repeal effort will come up with or without the support of the House leaders, Kevin Smith, Cornerstone’s executive director said.
