The Senate was where the fight was, if there ever was one. They crushed pro family forces with Maine Republicans offering only their usual tepid resistance. I always doubted that there would be a real fight in the State House on either abortion or homosexuality this year.
The party of sexual sin, the Democrats, continue to gain power in Maine. Until the Republicans figure out how to appeal to their traditional statewide base, or there is a revolution, we are likely to see the slide into sexual deviance continue.
There is hope, however, in using the Peoples Veto. The people haven't fallen quite as far as their political, cultural and academic institutions just yet. Although we may be surprised during this campaign to learn how far even the people have slipped from common sense and decency. We can hope.
The real answer to all of this, of course, is the Bible's teachings on morality. Every Mainer needs to dust that old book off and turn to 1 Timothy. That's a good place to start reading to get some practical advice for living. A quick ponder of Romans 1 will heal any waywardness on sexual sin. And if that leaves any questions, how about the Ten Commandments. It might be a little difficult to honor your father if you don't have one because your lesbian mommies, and some irresponsible male somewhere, decided to raise you without a dad.
