Fighting for Marriage in Maine

Opponents of same-sex "marriage" in Maine have collected over 100,000 petition signatures, nearly double the amount needed, forcing a November referendum. The Maine legislature legalized same-sex "marriage" in May.

But Maine law says the people have right to overerule their legislators with what is called a "people's veto." To put the referndum on the ballot Main citizens needed to collect 55,087 signatures. Protect Marriage Maine turned in 100,363!

The deadline for signatures was September 12, which means that Stand for Marriage Maine got twice the required amount in about half the needed time. God Bless them!

We will keep the "Stand for Marriage Maine" link up on our sidebar so that you good people will know where to go to contribute. Their website is here:
