Sun Journal Marriage Debate

October 15, 2009

The Lewiston Sun Journal hosted a forum today on Question 1 that pitted Marc Mutty against Shenna Bellows, of the Maine Civil Liberties Union.  Biased yes, but I think that Shenna killed it.  She focused on the stories of real people who have suffered under the current law.

The other piece of the debate that I found really confusing was the argument that a same-sex marriage and a “different gender” couple can’t both be described by the same word.  Mutty repeated this throughout the debate, and it’s totally bogus.  A great dane and a poodle are very different, but they’re both called dogs.  Drawing arbitrary lines isn’t a convincing argument.  Watch:
