With folks like Bishop Richard Malone declaring same-sex marriage “a dangerous sociological experiment that I believe will have negative consequences for society as a whole,” it’s no wonder Maine Gov. John Baldacci felt the need to defend his signature that made Maine the fifth state of its kind.
And wouldn’t you know it, in his weekly radio broadcast addressing the matter, Baldacci turned to a little thing called “Maine’s Constitution” in this logic experiment! Last we checked, the thing read “no person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law, nor be denied the equal protection of the laws, nor be denied the enjoyment of that person’s civil rights or be discriminated against.”
And then Baldacci turned to things that are actually worth debating, like the budget.
