Bedfellows. Strange?

by Jeremy Hooper

200908241523-1We've already shown you how Maine's "official" anti-marriage equality campaign is indelibly connected to the state's most diarrhea-mouthed anti-gay activist, Mike Heath. Now that same campaign is getting backing from another fringe group who they surely wish would stay in the closet: SPLC-certified hate group, MassResistance.

This from a newly posted MassResistance article:

Make no mistake about it: the homosexual lobby is absolutely determined to win this one. Most important, winning this election in Maine is a national goal for the homosexual movement. It would have effects in California and other places.
...

They are using their "lessons learned" from other states here. They believe that a win in Maine will have domino effect in California, Iowa, and other states across the country.

They must be stopped. Is our side up to it?

So let's see, Mainers: On the anti-equality side you have Mike Heath, a man who thinks gays are responsible for bad weather, graffiti, and economic downturns; you have MassResistance, an out-of-state group whose ire has earned them the dubious distinction of being one of only 11 anti-gay outfits in the country to appear on the Southern Poverty Law Center's hate groups list; and you have them both supporting the so-called "people's veto," a campaign that's headed up by Bob Emrich, a man who supports unscientific "ex-gay" therapy." And on the pro-fairness side you have a broad-based coalition who want nothing more than civil equality under the law (*which, btw, leaves ample room for folks to despise us as much as they want, just as long as they keep that disdain out of civil law!)

Pine Tree locals: Your state is known for its lighthouses. Please tell us that their bright glare is picking up on these easily discernible dots!
