And New Hampshire makes six: House and Senate pass revised same sex marriage law. Governor Lynch will sign it tonight.

UPDATE @ 5:49 PM: It’s official. The Governor of New Hampshire signed the same-sex marriage bill into law.
________________
Major progress today in the quest for equality. A big win in New Hampshire finally comes through:

The New Hampshire House has approved a bill to strengthen legal protections for religious organizations related to same-sex marriage, and the governor says he will sign same-sex marriage into law.

The House approved the measure on a vote of 198-176. Supporters of same-sex marriage erupted in cheers and applause as the total was announced.

Gov. John Lynch announced that he would sign the same-sex marriage bill into law on Wednesday evening.

The House vote followed the Senate approving the bill on a 14-10 party-line vote.

Congrats to everyone who worked so hard and diligently to make this happen.

And, this just give more impetus to our friends at the White House to re-think their out-dated strategy on marriage equality.
