new hampshire covernor john lynch (a democrat) forced the state legislature to modify language in a bill allowing same-sex marriage in the granite state. the new language specifically states that churches and religious groups do not have to officiate at a same-sex wedding (one wonders if they must so do for heteronormative ones); it also says these entities don't have to "provide services, facilities or goods of any kind to participants" (again, one wonders now if there is currently an imperative to so do). one could argue that this legislation suggests that if i—a nominal episcopalian—so wished, i could go into a catholic church, a mosque or a synagogue and force myself upon that house of worship; they would have to perform the ceremony of my choosing and provide access to facilities. of course that's not true; the governor is simply indulging in his—and the neanderthal religious establishment's—homophobia and heterohysteria. what a tool.
