Breaking: The Maine thing is that we're making even more progress

by Jeremy Hooper

Marriage equality in the Maine House: YES 89 and NO 58.

The bill will now go back to the Senate for a second, presumably easy vote, before heading to Gov. Baldacci. The organized opponents will now go back to ramping up their obnoxious dog/cat comparisons. You decide which you wanna get behind.

*EqualityMaine says:

Since we began our campaign, thousands of Mainers have raised their voices in support of fairness for gay and lesbian families,” said Betsy Smith, Executive Director of EqualityMaine. “Today an overwhelming number of legislators agreed that marriage should be open to all Maine families.

Your thoughts

AND, The DC Council voted 12 - 1 to recognize all marriages from other states. 4X married loser Marion Barry voted against the measure, even after he sponsored it. Actually he voted in favor of it at first, then claimed he didn't remember what he voted for. Yep, he's a real credit to our city.
