The fight to restore traditional marriage in New Hampshire continued this week, with over 300 Granite Staters rallying in Concord on Tuesday demanding that politicians stand with the people, not with liberal social activists, and to support HB 437, legislation that restores traditional marriage, while providing for civil unions, in Hampshire.
Supporters at the rally heard from elected officials, and from strong supporters of traditional marriage, including House Speaker Bill O’Brien (R-Mont Vernon), Baptist pastor Robert Emrich, who led a successful fight in Maine to get voters to reject its gay marriage law, and Rep. David Bates (R-Windham), sponsor of HB 437.
To boisterous cheers, Rep. Bates proudly stated, "We're here to stand up for New Hampshire families who understand what marriage is - between a man and a woman.”

House Speaker O’Brien said, “There are those who say it takes a village to raise a child — it doesn’t. It takes a mother and a father…this is the right debate, this is the right time, the time to return to the idea of traditional marriage.”
New Hampshire is standing up to national gay activists who forced the flawed 2009 gay marriage law on Granite Staters as part of their agenda to make gay marriage the law of the land in every state in America.
