ME Voters Will Get To Decide On Marriage Equality… Again

Even though Maine marriage advocates only needed 35,000 signatures to get marriage equality on the 2012 ballot, EqualityMaine has collected over 100,000 signatures, all but guaranteeing that the state’s voters will get to decide on marriage equality… just like they did in 2009. Let’s just hope that this time they vote for marriage equality instead of against it.

    It’s going to be a bit easier this time around, I hope. The Catholic church took a real beating and probably won’t have the money to spend. I think the people are fed up with their financial shenanigans.

    Although I don’t like the idea of voters being able to vote on a specific minorities rights, and it goes against what our constitution says, if this is our only current choice on the path to equality, then I say GO MAINE!

    So if we lose again, then what?

    I don’t trust the residents of any state on a vote on our civil rights.

    It will likely be approved this time because it will be an election year, with a much higher number of young, liberal voters out at the polls. That factor really killed us in 2009.

    Yay, let’s put it to another vote! Viva la Maine!

    I’m from Maine originally. We lost last time because the Christian Taliban successfuully argued that schools would be forced to teach about gay sex. Hopefully, that doesn’t make a return this time around.
