Catholic Diocese expects people of all faiths to vote against marriage law
AUGUSTA, Maine — The Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland says it expects people of all faiths — and those with no religious background as well — to come together to defeat the state’s recently enacted same-sex marriage law.
Spokesman Mark Mutty predicts efforts to create a coalition to jettison the law will become "one of the biggest grass-roots movements in Maine history."
Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap on Tuesday, May 19 approved the wording of a question that would go to a statewide referendum.
That clears gay marriage foes to begin collecting the signatures of at least 55,087 registered voters to get the measure on the state ballot.
