What NH employers should know about same-sex “marriage”

    SeacoastOnline: “Effective Jan. 1, 2010, New Hampshire became the sixth state to recognize marriages between persons of the same sex. New Hampshire’s statute provides that couples who entered into civil unions in other states will be considered married in New Hampshire, and civil unions performed under the state’s prior law will be converted into marriages. Same-sex marriages are treated identically to other marriages under New Hampshire laws, and dissolution will be governed by the same divorce statutes.”

    Nashua Telegraph: “It remains a crime in New Hampshire to commit adultery but advocacy groups and legislators at both ends of the political spectrum called for its repeal Tuesday . . . Rep. Sheila McGuire, R-Epsom, said she brought the bill (HB 1402) forward after a county prosecutor told her the office never even investigates adultery claims. If this bill became law, adultery would remain a valid cause for seeking divorce under civil law.”

    OneNewsNow: “Charges have been dropped against two street preachers who had been arrested for violating a town noise ordinance in the vicinity of a rock concert . . . Joe Infranco, the ADF attorney representing the two men, comments on the officers’ remarks. ‘This is [the officers'] interpretation of how the world should be run, that if you express your beliefs in public on any number of issues, that’s fine — but somehow if you express your beliefs on your faith in Christ that that should not get First Amendment protection,’ he explains.”

Street preachers file suit against discriminatory arrest

    Christian Post: “A Christian legal firm filed suit Wednesday on behalf of two Christian men who were arrested for witnessing on the streets. Mark Frost and Jayson Gardner were charged last year under a N.H. law against ‘unreasonable or loud’ noise. Attorneys with the Alliance Defense Fund argue the men’s free speech rights were denied. ‘Christians shouldn’t be arrested for expressing their beliefs. Arresting someone simply because he chooses to exercise his First Amendment rights in a public place is unconstitutional,’ said ADF Senior Counsel Joseph Infranco, in a statement.”
