Maine’s Own Proposition 8?

Posted by Alex On 8:33 PM

It could be a long difficult fight in Maine to defend marriage equality. Opponents of Maine marriage equality have hired “Schubert Flint Public Affairs”, the team that was behind the campaign that got Proposition 8 passed in California.


The Associated Press Says: “Schubert Flint Public Affairs will provide guidance to the campaign to repeal Maine's gay marriage law, just as it did during the Proposition 8 campaign in California.”

The AP also reports that Maine Freedom to Marry has hired Jesse Connolly who has in the past fought for gay rights in the state. Connolly says he and his team are preparing for a high profile and high cost battle.

Maine will start marrying same-sex couples in September, unless opponents can collect 55, 087 signatures before then. If the opponents can collect the needed signatures by the required date, the enactment of the new law will be put on hold. The Roman catholic dioceses has allowed signatures to be gathered at churches in an attempt to get the needed numbers. 

I just hope my birth state stands up and votes for Marriage equality. I know the people of New England are better than this.
