An initiative campaign to repeal Maine’s gay rights law and put in place roadblocks to gay marriages and adoptions is being abandoned, leaders of the campaign said Thursday.
"We’re pulling the plug," said Michael Heath, executive director of the Christian Civic League of Maine. Heath said the evangelical group failed to attract voter, volunteer and financial support it needed to continue its campaign.
Puerto Rico's House of Representatives has denied a measure to toughen a ban on same-sex marriage.
Rep. Victor Garcia San Inocencio says Resolution 99 failed on Thursday to make it to the House floor for voting, effectively killing the proposal for this legislative term.
If you recall, Mike Heath of the CCL of Maine is a pal of Brian Camenker and this is another defeat for anti-gay activists in Maine. Heath got another anti-gay measure on the Maine ballot and it lost so apparently the thought he'd try again only this time it didn't even make it to the ballot. In a podcast with the CCL Brian blamed the loss of the marriage amendment in Mass on the MFI because it was weak and not strong enough (like what Heath wanted in Maine but couldn't even get the signatures for)
On the second bullet, MassResistance Dandy Mad Dad Parker went down to Puerto Rico to rally the troops against gay marriage. Unfortunately for them it didn't pass the legislature.
