Roger Williams.jpegFinal piece of same-sex marriage legislation passes both houses of New Hampshire legislature and gov. says he’ll sign today–making New England five for six on the marriage equality front.

“Let’s vote this one last time. Church and state should be
separate,” said Rep. Anthony DiFruscia, R-Windham, who helped craft the
final compromise language.

In the Senate, Judiciary Committee
chair Sen. Deborah Reynolds, D-Plymouth, said the language in the
amendment strikes a balance that provides “equal rights for all and the
right to religious freedom.”

That’s New England separationism for you.Yo, Rhode Island! What would Roger Williams do?
