SCOTUS of Washington rebuffs CCL of Maine

by Jeremy Hooper

Our ol' buddies at the Christian Civic League of Maine have been brushed off by the U.S. Supreme Court, who have refused to hear an appeal of a May ruling that prevented the League from airing an anti-same-sex marriage radio ad.

Poor dears.

The planned ads -- which asked Maine citizens to call Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins and "urge them to support the Marriage Protection Amendment" -- had originally been nixed because the scheduled air-date was too close to the state's primary elections and would've violated election law. In today's ruling, SCOTUS dismissed this appeal because they said it was "moot."

We, on the other hand, reject just about everything that the CCL of Maine puts forth in regards to gays, as it usually falls somewhere between "biased rhetoric" and "sentiment so discriminatory, they make Anita Bryant look like Bella Abzug in comparison." Seriously, like here's gay-friendly: [GAY-FRIENDLY]
