5 out of 6 new England States have now legalized gay marriage. New Hampshire’s new law wisely says individual churches can decide whether to have religious same-sex marriage with civil marriage available to all. This neatly punts the issue out of the religious arena and could be a model for other states.
It’s interesting the push for same sex-marriage is coming out of New England.
I grew up there, in Connecticut. I think some of the reason maybe that in New England religion and politics are considered personal, and privacy should be respected. Also, the Religious Right has the least amount of influence there.
