Come for the hymns, stay for the naked electioneering—Maine edition

by Jeremy Hooper

The Christian Civic League of Maine, NOM's top coalition partner on the push to stop marriage equality in the Pine Tree State, is disseminating voter guides to local churches

Created by the so-called Faith & Freedom Coalition, these guides are going into every state, with the presidential race consistent throughout and the local races tailored for each area. No, they do not say, explicitly, that the congregants should vote for a certain candidate. The language, however, makes the intent perfectly clear. When talking about health care, they weigh the two top-tier candidates on whether or not they plan to "Repeal Obamacare," something President Obama is obviously not going to do. When talking about reproductive choice, they use the loaded phrase "abortion on demand." And so on and so forth (including two marriage equality categories).

The bottom line is that these state and national groups—the very same ones fighting us at the ballot on marriage—are working in tandem to elect Mitt Romney and a slate of Republicans, and they are doing this through a vast network of Sunday services. All while keeping a taxpayer-subsidized IRS status, of course.

Ah, America.
