>What's the Maine Gay Marriage Law? Allowing it? If so, cool.
Well, allowing it again. Same-sex marriage was briefly legal in Maine a few years ago, having been enacted by the Legislature, but it was then repealed by referendum. Since Maine's constitution does not have a "no backsies" rule on citizens' initiatives, last month we had another referendum to put it back again. I would guess there'll be a third one attempting to repeal it again as soon as the Maine Christian Civic League can gin up enough signatures to get it onto the ballot. And so it goes, theoretically ad infinitum, or at least until there's federal law on the matter.
