There is a big vote in Maine today concerning the nature of marriage. If the measure fails, then Maine will have become the first state to actually vote in gay marriage. As you know the other states had gay marriage more or less imposed on them by judicial fiat. This story from Baptist Press offers a glimmer of hope in that a media frenzy has followed the harrassment case of a Maine social worker who spoke out in favor of traditional marriage. The Alliance Defense Fund is taking his case, and the outcome of the vote may well be tilted by this single event. The Maine event is one to watch today.
