Maine Marriage Bill Looks Promising

The New England state is moving fast ahead in giving full marriage equality to gays and lesbians, and amazingly, plenty of support is being voiced from both legislative parties. More than 60 legislators in Maine have co-sponsored a new same-sex marriage bill in the state, headed up by Democratic Senator Dennis Damon of Trenton.

Many have argued that not only is same-sex marriage the right step to equality, it's also beneficial to the economy, something everyone likes to hear.

Naturally, opposition is building, and the future of the bill, once it passes the judicial committee, is uncertain. Voice your approval by contacting Sen. Dennis Damon and help Maine join Massachusetts and Connecticut as the only states that allow same-sex marriage.

  1. Just a few years ago there was so much debate over whether they should have a hate crimes bill, this is amazing how far we have come.
