Maine Voters Reject Gay Marriage Law

November 4th, 2009 by

On Tuesday, a state law in Maine that would have redefined marriage to include same-sex couples was repealed.  According to FoxNews:

Voters in the northeastern state of Maine repealed a state law that would have allowed same-sex couples to wed, dealing the gay rights movement a heartbreaking defeat in the corner of the country most supportive of gay marriage.

Gay marriage has now lost in every single state — 31 in all — in which it has been put to a popular vote. Gay-rights activists had hoped to buck that trend in Maine — known for its moderate, independent-minded electorate — and mounted an energetic, well-financed campaign.

Whenever the people are asked if marriage should be redefined to include homosexual couples, the answer is a clear no.
