New Hampshire Voter: Gay-Marriage Law Doesn’t Reflect Us


A New Hampshire resident writes to the Nashua Telegraph:

The Dec. 28 editorial titled “Gay-marriage law assault perplexing” left me equally perplexed – and insulted.

What you characterize as an “assault” is actually a commonsense effort to finally put a much-needed check on a social activist agenda that doesn’t reflect the will of the people in New Hampshire.

Your editorial also drips with contempt for voters who last year rejected politicians who supported gay marriage when they should have been focusing on fixing our broken economy.

It may come as news to you, but voters are right to demand that their elected representatives show respect for the will of the people who elected them in the first place.

Unlike The Telegraph, I, for one, am glad to see politicians are heeding the message of 2010 and showing some backbone against liberal activists using New Hampshire to further their political and social agendas.
