NOM Gives $500K To Maine's Haters
The Boston Globe reports:
The Maine Legislature legalized gay marriage in 2009, but the law was overturned in a "people’s veto" vote later that year. Gay marriage supporters gathered signatures to put it on the ballot again. Gay marriage opponents are also stepping up their efforts. The Roman Catholic Church has kicked off a series of meetings to promote its view of marriage being between a man and a woman. And the National Organization for Marriage has made a $500,000 matching contribution to fight same-sex marriage. The Rev. Bob Emrich, chairman of Protect Marriage Maine, which opposes same-sex marriage, said "radical activists" are putting their own interest ahead of children. "The data confirms what we know to be true — the ideal environment for children to thrive is one where they receive the love of both a mom and a dad," he said.
