Travel to Aroostook County Maine? Keep the Uniform Anti-Gay Landslide of 2009 in Mind

Anti-Gay Mainer Names Himself God. Lordy, Lordy.

The attitude of Mainers who acted to take away equality from the state of Maine, who acted to take away equal protection under law for gay and lesbian people in Maine, is perfectly summed up in the letter to the editor by Louis Phillipe of Westbrook:

Those ever-so-certain folks at Stand For Marriage Maine are […]

Gay-Friendly and Gay-Unfriendly Places in Maine, Revealed by Vote

Violence against gay and lesbian people in the United States is unfortunately a real concern. Just for holding hands in public with the people they love, gay and lesbian Americans have been denied service, pushed, shoved, beaten and killed. It is entirely reasonable for gay and lesbian couples thinking of visiting various parts of America […]

Stand for Marriage Maine Brings Out the Scary Black Woman for its Anti-Gay Ads

Lee Atwater is chuckling in his grave.

When Stand for Marriage Maine wanted to put out its first TV ads against same-sex marriage in Maine, it put out an audition notice looking for a nice, well-spoken white woman willing to pretend to be a teacher and read a script. I’m not kidding. Here is the […]

Philly Catholic Church Says It Can't Pay for Schoolbooks, Slips Anti-Gay Maine Campaign a Check

When representatives of various churches and other religious organizations in Maine gathered in early October to declare their support for same-sex marriage and their opposition to Ballot Question 1, the head of the anti-gay YES on 1 forces mocked them.
