Gay marriage more likely in New England States
From USA Today News - March 25, 2009:
"Same-sex marriage proposals are sweeping into New England state legislatures this spring, particularly in places where organized religious opposition may be the weakest.
A USA TODAY analysis finds that states where the percentage of "nones" people who say they have no religion is at or above the national average of 15% are more likely to push expanding the scope of marriage, civil unions or same-sex partner rights."

New Hampshire House votes for Gay Marriage
"After two days of debating, the New Hampshire House voted for gay marriage 186 to 179 after first voting against it, 183 to 182.
The first vote against equal marriage was so close that a representative asked for it to be reconsidered. After a few minutes of intense personal lobbying on the floor, it passed.
Bills can only be reconsidered once, so the new vote is final.
The debate was ferocious, with Rep. Terie Norelli pleading with the anti-marriage contingent that it was against his religion to NOT solemnize gay marriage. The state of New Hampshire should not have the right to impose your religious beliefs on my family and my church, he said."
