Efforts to ban gay marriage in New Hampshire fail

The New Hampshire house of representatives voted against a constitutional amendment to prohibit same-sex marriage and repeal the law allowing same-sex marriage.  Gay marriage was legalized in New Hampshire in January.  New Hampshire Rep. Nancy Elliott’s vehemently opposes the bill allowing gay marriage, but her efforts to repeal the law were controversial.  During a Judiciary Meeting discussing  HB 5090, Elliott graphically described sexual relations between married gay men as”taking the penis of a man and putting it in the rectum of another man and wriggling it around in excrement.”  She then reported that she was contacted by a parent of a 5th grader in a Nashua school who was allegedly exposed to graphic depictions of homosexual anal sex and encouraged to engage in it. Rep. Elliott did not verify the veracity of this report before her public testimony and school officials deny the event took place.  Rep. Nancy Elliot apologized for lying about 5th graders in Nashua being encouraged to try homosexual anal sex at the judiciary hearing and apologized to the school district and community of  Nashua.
