POLL: Should Businesses Have The Right To Refuse Gay Couples?
New Hampshire lawmakers are scheduled to hold a hearing today on whether or not a business can refuse those united through gay marriage.
Should a business be able to turn down a married couple just because they are the same sex?
If passed, the bill would give them the right to refuse accommodations, goods or services to gay couples in New Hampshire. It would also block civil lawsuits against those who felt working with the couples would violate his or her conscience or religious faith.
WMUR reports that New Hampshire's gay marriage law exempts churches and religious groups from being forced to officiate at gay marriages or to provide services, facilities and goods of any kind to participants.
