Pennsylvania Group Comes to Maine

July 21, 2009

Maine Freedom to Marry sent out an email today with a link to this video from WCSH6, the local NBC affiliate.  A group of men from the American Society for the Defense of Family, Tradition, and Property are touring Maine to advocate for the repeal of marriage equality.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

My favorite parts:

  • Women would be allowed, but they shouldn’t hear all those swear words (I kind of wonder if these men think that their wives fall under the “family” part or the “property” part of their name).
  • The classic line that single parents can’t be good parents.
  • Marriages conducted outside of a church are just like “shacking up,” and don’t really count.

I continue to think that stories like these are ultimately good for those who want to uphold LD 1020 because the impression that the fight to overturn marriage equality is coming from outside of the state is one that will annoy a lot of Mainers.

    I like the Maine guy’s comments best!
    Enjoying your blog, Nick– I’m glad your dad referred me to it. I’m passing it on to many friends here in Baton Rouge.
