New Hampshire state Rep. David Bates (R) has proposed an absurd plan to repeal the state’s marriage equality law and re-implement civil unions, and one lawmaker intends to demonstrate just how off-kilter the bill is. When it comes up for a vote next week, Rep. Seth Cohn (R) intends to offer an amendment that would make it illegal for two left-handed people to marry each other. This kind of out-of-box thinking is not new for Cohn, considering last year he co-sponsored a bill that would have eliminated all civil “marriage” in New Hampshire and instead offered domestic unions for straight and gay couples alike.
