Eliminate Discri-Maine-ation

by Jeremy Hooper

In Maine on Thursday, the Legislature's Judiciary Committee lent it's stamp of approval to Gov. John Baldacci's proposed bill to ban gay discrimination in the state.

The vote was 9-4, with the divide pretty much falling along party lines (Although one Republican, Sen. David Hastings did give an 'aye' to the measure).

But don't you be thinking that the majority of the right-ringers are fans of discrimination, per se. It's just that they are not fans of homo-gays, in general.

See the difference?
