N.H. governor will sign gay marriage bill if it’s changed
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch says he will sign a bill to make his state the sixth
to legalize gay marriage, but only if it strengthens protections for churches opposed to gay marriage.
The bill has been passed by the Legislature, but hasn’t yet reached Lynch’s desk.
It would allow churches to decide whether they will conduct religious marriages for same-sex couples. But
Lynch said Thursday he wants clearer language to ensure that people won’t be forced to violate their
religious principles. He says laws in Connecticut and Vermont do that.
The only other New England state not committed to recognizing same-sex marriage is Rhode Island. It’s
also legal in Iowa.
