    Default Gay marriage foes reach signature goal in Maine

    PORTLAND, Maine - Gay marriage foes in Maine say they’ve collected enough signatures to stop the new law from going into effect and to force a statewide vote in November.

    Mark Mutty from the Stand for Marriage Maine coalition says it took only four weeks to gather the more than 55,087 signatures necessary to put gay marriage to a vote. But he says signature gathering will continue to ensure there’s more than enough petitions.

    The law that’s scheduled to go into effect on Sept. 12 will be put on hold after the signatures are submitted and certified by the secretary of state’s office.

    Six states allow gay marriage. Maine became the fifth state to allow gay marriage in May, and New Hampshire later followed suit.

    Our civil liberties are about to die. Whatever happened to "the pursuit of happiness" that was listed as an inalienable right that Americans are supposed to have?

    Honestly why does someone care if a complete stranger wants to be married to someone of the same sex? Is that really a crime?

    Didn't we just get done having this debate/conversation? I'm not sure, it all blends together after a while..

    seen, I'm sure we'll get the same responses as last time. But yes, it does seem like we just discussed this.

    Mike's a class act.
    I wish I could marry him, but that would be against the law.

    People who are able to go around and bother folks with a gay marriage petition have way too much time on their hands.

    I've oftened wondered how those who doth protest too much find the time and resources to do so.

    Are these people independently weathly? Are they retired blue hairs? Do they have the backing of the (insert church name here)? Don't most of 'em have families, bills to pay? Are they on unemployment? Trust funds? Lottery winners?

    I mean, I work full time for chump change, so I am not being a smart ass for once. I really would like to know how they do it.

    I need down time and sleep every once in a while, yet these people seem to have limitless energy and resources to champion a cause that really is none of their fucking business.

    Often times, these things are run by some group with a name like "The Campaign for Family Values" which will have a small office in a strip mall somewhere, but which will also be curiously well-funded. They will have enough money to have a sizeable full time staff who recruit an army of volunteers from local churches (many times, out-of-town churches, too.)

    Where do they get the money? Take your pick: The Mormons, the Moral Majority, The Klan, Dominos Pizza...the list goes on.
    If you're a white person who wants to fight for "family values", you will find yourself with lots of rich friends.
