Capitol Hill Update: Even Liberal Maine May Join 30 States Outlawing Homosexual "Marriage"


The "Washington Times" reported last week that the governor of Maine, John Baldacci, has signed a formal proclamation putting the state's homosexual "marriage" law up for a vote this November.  Since it is an off-congressional election year, there is a good chance that those committed to traditional marriage between one man and one woman will prevail as traditional values voters have in 30 other states so far.  

The state constitutional amendments banning homosexual "marriage" in those 30 states have passed overwhelmingly by an average margin of 70% approval, including the liberal states of Hawaii, Oregon and California.  The Maine legislature has passed a law approving homosexual "marriage."  However, the procedure called the People's Veto enables the citizens of Maine to override their state legislators.    

A total of 55,087 signatures of those Maine citizens who opposed the legislature's homosexual "marriage" bill were required.  Instead opponents turned in nearly 100,000 signatures.  It appears that Maine is headed on the path to become the 31st state to ban homosexual "marriages."  Where the people are allowed to decide  --  and not some unelected state judges nor legislators who do not represent the viewpoints of their constituents  --  the people always vote down these abominable laws.
