The Question: Which People?



Proving there remain different opinions on the way life should be,
opponents of Maine's new gay marriage law have gathered enough signatures
for a so-called people's veto on the issue, which will appear as
Question 1 on a November ballot. Supporters of same-sex marriage,
anticipatingthe move, have already begun organizing and airing ads.

"We have put our trust in the common sense and
fair-mindedness of our friends, neighbors and co-workers," said Jesse
Connolly, campaign manager of NO on 1/Protect Maine Equality. "We
believe voters will reject Question 1 because
here in Maine we believe everyone should be allowed to live their
lives and be treated equally under the law."
