WTF, Maine?!

Maine Gay Marriage Law Repealed: "The tide of extending marriage rights to same-sex couples—which has swept across New England in recent months—has stopped at Maine. Voters rejected a state law Tuesday that would have allowed same-sex couples to wed. The repeal comes just six months after the measure was passed by the Maine legislature and signed by the Democratic Gov. John Baldacci."

Late last night, with most precincts reporting, marriage supporters had lost 53-47%.

I'm just...FUCK. This is why equality shouldn't be up for a goddamn vote.
