More Legislative Corruption: New Hampshire Removes Senator From HB73 Committee for refusing to Support Gay Marriage Bill

traditional marriage

Replaced with a Senator who Voted by Phone

Today, the committee of conference on the gay marriage amendment, HB73, met to "negotiate".

Senator Roberge offered 2 reasonable amendments:

  • allowing for "freedom of religious conscience" for private individuals and businesses
  • allowing a non-binding referendum on this issue for the citizens to vote on.

No one on the committee would even second the Senator’s motions!

Instead, the conference committee offered MINOR changes to the amendment that failed in the House and voted 6-1 to accept the changes (Senator Roberge was the one dissenting vote).

Because a committee of conference vote needs to be UNANIMOUS in order for it to be brought before the House and Senate again, the Senate President Slyvia Larson then REMOVED Senator Roberge from the committee and REPLACED her with Senator Houde, who "dialed in" his vote FOR the report.

Senator Houde was not even present!

No matter where you live, call Senator Larson at 603- 225-6130 and respectfully tell her that NH citizens do not want gay marriage being rammed through by a circumvention of the process. Enough is enough!

Now HB73 goes back to the full house and senate for a vote stay tuned.

    BB, are you starting to see that there is more at work here than “lets all just get along” and be nice so homosexuals will want to change? Demon activity on Earth is increasing. Demons have always loved unnatural sex practices and are the founders of all that is vile. World events and the advancement of everything that is vile will continue to defey all humane reasoning. It is this same corruption of humanity that handed Christians over in the Roman Arena in the first century. The moraly bankrupt and demon inspired homosexuals in those arena seats thuroughly enjoyed seeing Christians torn to pieces and burned on stakes as lanterns to light up the night. Never underestimate the power of what the demons and those controlled by them can accomplish. The truth has been exchanged for the lie. What was good is now bad, and what was bad is now good. You cannot reason with people controlled by such twisted thinking. Mathew 7:6.

    I honestly think that people who suffer with same sex attraction can live a wholesome life. I even believe that there is hope for hearts and desires to change for those who seek it, but I do not lay the responsibility for all that is evil at the feet of those who experience this attraction. I agree that homosexual practices are not right, but there are many things that are not right, I’m sure you’ll agree. Pornography addictions, sexual addictions, food addictions, anger problems, selfish problems, we all have things we deal with. I would hate to equate struggling homosexuals with the actions of those who persecuted Christians during the Roman era. I treat people with respect because I value the person. I am happy to reason with people, but do not condone their actions, and my purpose is not in the hope that they will change. That choice is up to them.

    I do believe that this is a war, and that we are the grassroots movement necessary to educate, fight for, and promote clear thinking on this issue. The concerns raised by the gay activist movement have gone unaddressed on the national scene. I believe in loving and respecting those we disagree with, but by no means does that entail letting anyone push forward this agenda.

    The Governor insisted he was in favor of the man-woman basis of marriage — in his various re-election campaigns. He should keep his word and veto this nonsense.

    I agee with BB. We must not raise one evil above all others, or the enemy of our souls will find good fodder to work with in our lives. Regarding the homosexual issue, I have read that part of the problem back in ‘the day’ was that the Christian church failed to address it well, namely, instead of dialogue with the gay community, the church became defensive. Instead of bridges of communication being built, walls of separation were erected.

    It is my prayer that ALL voters call their leaders re. this committee of conference’s action. Wouldn’t it be nice if even the gay community got on board and voiced its concern for the seemingly inappropriate removal of Senator Roberge for the issue here is not same-sex but good government.

    It is astonishing that this would have happened in such a brazenly partisan way. The only cure is information. Get the information out to the people as far and wide as possible. Corruption is something we have to deal with on every level. The only reason these politicians think they can get away with these things is because we’ve never held them accountable in any methodical and predictable way. They think we’re not looking, too busily wrapped in our families, responsibilities, or our toys and baubles to care. All while the opposition has targets marked on their heads from day one if they don’t comply. We’ve got to learn to play the game in a smarter way. This is no time to turn the other cheek. We’ve become enablers. That can’t go on.

    On May 17th, D. Rolling Keary said, “They refer to “antigay violence” as a “major source of stress for lesbian, gay, and bisexual people.” That’s interesting. I wonder why Matthew Shepard is the only incident they can point to to support that claim, and that was more than a decade ago! AND it is not entirely certain that there was any anti-homosexual motivation in that crime’s commission to begin with!”
