    Maine enacts law allowing gay marriages

    State becomes fifth to do so; New Hampshire could decide later today

    Gov. John Baldacci signed a bill Wednesday allowing gay marriages, making Maine the fifth state in the nation to do so.

    Earlier Wednesday, the Maine Senate voted 21-13, with one absent, for a bill that authorizes marriage between any two people rather than between one man and one woman, as state law currently allows. The House had passed the bill Tuesday.
    But Senate Majority Leader Philip Bartlett II said the bill does not compel religious institutions to recognize gay marriage.

    "We respect religious liberties. ... This is long overdue," said Bartlett, D-Gorham.
    New Hampshire's House was also expected to vote on a gay marriage bill Wednesday and send it to Gov. John Lynch, a Democrat who has not indicated whether he would sign the legislation.

    This is even more significant due to Maine being only the second state to legalize same-sex marriage by way of the legislative process.

    The idea of so-called "activist judges" in relation to this issue is becoming moot.

    OMG NOOOO! Marriage is going to collapse and we'll all be forced to gay marry! Then children will have bad homes and our economy will collapse! Why, why can't people see that gay marriage is a gateway to bestiality and satan worship! Gay marriage is like the marijuana of the obscene and immoral sex world! Once you allow it, we'll turn into the next Sodom and Gomorrah. And then we'll all turn to salt! Just you wait and see, Maine you fools you've destroyed us all!
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I'm splitting a gut! All I can hear, as I read your post, is the Wicked Witch after Dorothy doused her with a bucketful of water.

    Ohhhh, you cursed brat! Look at what you've done... Oh what a world... oh what a world...

    Listen to her yourself. She kinda sounds like the Repubs running scared from Obama the All Mighty.
