Maine's Question One: War on gay existences not limited to ring fingers!

by Jeremy Hooper

Just a reminder, because it can't be said enough: Maine's Pastor Bob Emrich supports "ex-gay" therapy. The same Bob Emrich who was just today cited by Bangor Daily News as the "leader of the Yes on 1 campaign to overturn Maine’s same-sex marriage law," and the same "ex-gay" therapy that is completely refuted by all credible science:

Look, it's simple: A vote for this hurtful, divisive measure known as Question One is a vote for this ridiculous anti-science known as "reparative therapy"/"pray away the gay." We implore some of you who might be planning to vote against us because you think there are repercussions that go beyond equality: Consider becoming an "ex-yes vote" before its too late! We pro-equality types who've closely followed this campaign know the stakes just as firmly as we know our sexual truths. And what the "yes" side has not told you about their underlying mission could fill one incredibly eye-opening book!
