Maine's same-sex marriage law repealed



Same-sex marriage was allowed by law in the state of Maine, but the voters were given the option to repeal the law on yesterday's ballot. They chose to repeal it--no more same-sex marriage in Maine. The vote was 53% to 47%.

It's a matter of time before it'll become legal.

As homosexuals are a minority of the population it would be difficult for them to get a majority vote - especially with the religious rightwingers having their position already decided for them.
