Dale Carpenter reacts to the religious liberty clauses being inserted into New Hampshire's marriage equality bill:

With the passage of each new SSM bill, the pressure to adopt specific religious exemptions and to expand their coverage is growing. Make no mistake: a baseline is being established in New England.

I'm fine with it. I don't want to offend anyone's religious convictions or in any way intrude on anyone's right to regard me and my civil marriage as an abomination and to stay as far away from it as possible. They can keep their kids away, they can tell them I'm wicked, that I will go to hell, that my love is an illusion, that my life a sham. But give me equality under the law. No more; no less. And may your God go with you.
