Left Side of the Aisle #49 - Part 2

Everything You Need to Know: The right-wing knows it's on the wrong side of history in just three sentences.

As sort of a footnote to the preceding, we have everything you need to know about how you know they know they are losing (if you follow that) in just three sentences:

1. On January 1, 2010, same-sex marriage became the law in New Hampshire, replacing an earlier law allowing for civil unions, which had been legal since January 1, 2008.

2. Last week New Hampshire state Rep. David Bates proposed a bill that would undo same sex marriage and revert to the earlier law, which established civil unions.

3. This bill has the support of the Catholic Church in New Hampshire and the National Organization for Marriage, both of which, along with Bates, bitterly opposed civil unions when that law was under consideration but who, having lost on same-sex marriage, now find civil unions not so bad after all.

And that is everything you need to know.
