In a blow to gay rights Maine has said no to same sex marriage at the ballot box. For now it seems that Maine is inhabited by a majority of intolerant homophobes who fear the inevitable. When that generation of bigots finally pass on and go to their segregated Nirvana in the sky then more reasonable heads can prevail. Much like the fight for equal rights for minorities (Remember not long ago blacks and whites could not marry!) there will one day be equality for homosexuals and this will be looked at as an embarrassing chapter in America's history.
