They’re falling, and squashing bigotry as they go. Another state has legalized same-sex marriage! That’s three new states in just a few months. Iowa, New Hampshire, and now Maine have joined Connecticut and Massachusetts, which lead the country in not being assweasels, and in September, Vermont’s legalization, already passed, will kick in!
Big ups to Maine, where the Governor Jim John Baldacci (D, natch) who used to be opposed to SSM, signed a bill into law, declaring:
“I have come to believe that this is a question of fairness and of equal protection under the law and that a civil union is not equal to civil marriage.”
It’s like the world is starting to make sense again. Ayup. (Any Mainers out there? Hooray!)
