It may just go down in Maine as you say.50-50 percent for ssm is a pipe dream and flat out lie. Voted down and goin down in Maine.
But back to your "it's been voted down every time claim".
" Arizona is currently the only state to have rejected a same-sex marriage ban in the United States."
Now let's look at the rest of history. The GLBT community has seen a dramatic increase in support over the last 48 years. True we faced losses at the ballot box and in court. But we also succeeded in many of them as well. You say "it's been voted down every time".
Yet 6 States now have SSM. If it was always voted down how did that happen?
You can try to claim Courts and "activist judges" forced the States to change their laws but that too would be a lie.
In every State that has SSM it was voted on by the Legislature; the duly elected representatives of "the will of the people".
Because heterosexuals rejected your ideology of bigotry. Because they supported the U.S. Constitution and not a bunch of unelected money grubbing non profits and their stooges like you.
Each win we've had, your team has run back to those very same "activist judges" and tried to get the vote changed. And we've done the same thing.
Your side is losing and knows it. If you were so confident that what you stand for is right, why are you trying to get exemptions to laws that make signatures on petitions open to the public? The religious right has been pushing for special rights since this all began. The GLBT community wants the law to apply to everyone fairly. You don't.
Oh sure you say it's because people might face a backlash. But it does strike me as pretty odd that someone would want to hide their beliefs if they are so morally right.
