A Must Read!

Written by a Daily Kos blogger, Bill, for his local newspaper in Maine: LETTER OF THE MONTH

Here's the letter:

It’s reached a point where here you have the citizens of Maine upholding the gay-rights law, and Michael Heath has always said we have to listen to the will of the people, and that’s apparently not good enough for him any more. I felt compelled to speak out about the issue.

What must we do? What must gays and lesbians – like me and my partner of 15 years – do to be accepted as equals in the eyes of Michael Heath?

We obey the law. We pay our taxes. We follow the Golden Rule. We work hard. We help the local economy. We vote. We give to charity. We take great pride in our state. We keep our yard clean. We’re good neighbors. We even fly an American flag from our porch.

But none of this is good enough for Michael Heath. In his world, we’re conspirators in some ‘sexual revolution’ that’s responsible for all the social ills in the state – including broken homes, child abuse and abortion.
