Head of PAC trying to stop marriage in Maine: Refer to 'sodomy-based marriage' as 'monstrous insaneness'

by Jeremy Hooper

Nobody has been fighting against LGBT rights in Maine longer than Mike Heath, former Christian Civic League of Maine leader and current head of one of the two primary PACs hoping to stop the freedom to marry at the polls this November. This is Mike's latest round of advice:

At about the same time Facebook decided to block the speech of Coach Dave Daubenmire...one 201206290827 of its founders fulfilled his commitment to make a huge $100,000 donation to assure Maine enacts sodomy-based “marriage” in November of this year. I’ve been told hundreds of times in the past decade by churches, individuals and businesses in Maine that they cannot give money to defend marriage because it will hurt them. More and more people each year decide to withhold funding for the defense of common sense because they are afraid of being bullied by the homosexual movement.

The Christian supporters of common sense in Maine struggle to stay faithful in the fight. Even though Maine is the only political jurisdiction to have twice overturned “gay” rights in statewide voting, the momentum has shifted to the homosexual activist lobby. Polling shows them winning the vote in November. That would make Maine the first state to approve of so-called same sex marriage in a popular vote.

Now is, of course, not the time to soften our message. It is, in fact, the time to abandon the pro-family politicking of the past four or five decades and simply tell the truth. A good place to start is this sermon by Saint John Chrysostom. He calls this whole issue “monstrous insaneness.” [AFTAH]

Oh please, please, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeez put "monstrous insaneness" into a campaign ad! Pretty please! I can probably even funding for that foot-shot, Mr Heath!
