Victory in Maine

Last spring, to the joy of liberals and the dismay of conservatives, the Maine legislature adopted a same-sex “marriage” law, turning New England, where American Independence began, into a seemingly solid front for the most radical social innovation in history. . Yesterday the citizens of Maine had a chance to vote on a referendum that would repeal the statute.

Laura Wood writes at The Thinking Housewife:

Voters in Maine yesterday overturned a new law legalizing same-sex marriage, making Maine the 31st state to reject homosexual marriage by popular vote. In every state in which same-sex marriage has been put to the vote of the people, it has lost.

Because of Maine’s proximity to Vermont, New Hampshire and Connecticut, where same-sex marriage has been approved through court rulings and legislation, this was an important victory for supporters of traditional marriage.
