Marriage Equality in Maine Part I

February 17, 2009

So this isn’t the first of the news to pop up around the debate of marriage equality in Maine, but it’s the first piece since I’ve tried to restart blogging.  The Bangor Daily News ran this editorial on January 30th, and it’s certainly a great start.  I’ll post more on the developments in the Maine Legislature as they appear.

The Marriage Debate

It is a sure sign of progress that lawmakers will soon debate whether marriage or civil unions are the appropriate way to recognize gay relationships in Maine. Nearly five years after Maine voters reaffirmed civil rights protections for gays and lesbians, the debate has taken a big step forward. The path leads to only one place — full recognition of gay couples as equal to their heterosexual counterparts.
