Maine campaigners turn to 'protect marriage' movement's favored tool: church bulletins

by Jeremy Hooper

Plus: Their bold heading uses the pluralized form of fathers, which would seem to indicate awareness of the fact that some American families have more than one. That's nice of them to acknowledge!

Minus: The opposition movement's continued attempts to turn church bulletin networks into electioneering/campaign finance devices turns large swaths of people away from both the political and religious process.

Summation: Congregants would be much better off giving their money towards church roof repair than towards civil discrimination. One keeps the storms at bay while the other stirs up new ones.
