Stand for [locking up and throwing away the key] Maine?

by Jeremy Hooper

So if they had their way, what would the folks at the Maine Family Policy Council really like to see? Well, check out this, their assessment of the work of their fellow foe of the 'mos, Peter LaBarbera:

Those who need first hand proof of the depravity of the gay rights movement can visit his website, AmericansforTruth.org. There can be no doubt that if the public had the information LaBarbera offers, not only would same sex marriage come to a quick end, sodomy would again be a crime throughout the U.S.

Yes, that's right: Criminalization. And make no mistake, Mainers: While "Yes on 1" wants you to believe that this Maine Family Policy Council is detached from their "people's veto" push, the reality is that the connections are undeniable. It's only in the past six months that Bob Emrich, Charla Bansley, and the rest of Stand For Marriage Maine's stable have abandoned the Maine Family Policy Council and its former leader, Mike Heath, because they realized (probably on advice from NOM/Schubert-Flint) that they needed to carve out a more mainstream image.

The "yes on 1" team can say all they want that this fight is all about schools, children, and tradition. In Maine, there is much more extreme hostility bubbling right under the surface. Extremism that groups like the Family Research Council (alongside the aforementioned Bansley and Emrich) feted as recently as February of '09. And most importantly: It's extremism os which Mainers have a right to be aware!

Your thoughts

LaBarbera a hero?

Bring me a wastebasket. I'm about to throw up.

This excerpt needs to be edited because Americans deserve the truth:

"Those who need first hand exaggerated propaganda of the depravity of the gay rights movement can visit his website, AmericansforBullshit.org. There can be no doubt that if the public had the mindless drivel LaBarbera offers, not only would his website come to a quick end, LaBarbera would be a laughing stock throughout the U.S."

I really hope the average citizens/voters of Maine who don't think they really have a dog in this hunt understand just how hateful these out-of-staters are.
