Equality is sweeping the northeast! Maine's legislature just passed a marriage equality bill, and the governor, who had previously spoken out against same sex marriage, quickly signed it into law.

Quoth the Governor:

In the past, I opposed gay marriage while supporting the idea of civil unions. I have come to believe that this is a question of fairness and of equal protection under the law, and that a civil union is not equal to civil marriage. . . . This new law does not force any religion to recognize a marriage that falls outside of its beliefs. It does not require the church to perform any ceremony with which it disagrees. Instead, it reaffirms the separation of Church and State. It guarantees that Maine citizens will be treated equally under Maine’s civil marriage laws, and that is the responsibility of government.

YES. Way to get it, Gov. Baldacci! A+ in Rethinking Your Assumptions! <3 <3 <3

We now return you to your regularly scheduled "Aaaaahhhhh law school graduation in 19 days aaaaahhhhh" panic/silence.
