So sorry to see all the flooding in your city. (from the above comments) It seems there's always someone who thinks suffering and disasters follow 'sinful' people around. I find that kind of thinking repugnant!
I am proud that at least 78 people in my tiny northern Maine town voted to keep our gay marriage law. That's quite a feat since this area is considered the 'bible belt'of Maine. Unfortunately we 'no' people were outnumbered by homophobias and religiosity. The people that are against gay marriage shouldn't get too comfortable here because they did not win by a wide margin. This is a civil rights issue and it shouldn't have even come up for a vote with the general population. I resent the fact that religious people think they have a right to interfere with our government and our private lives.
