This is a surprising outcome to be honest. I would have thought all of the New England states would have laws supporting gay marriage. Looks like the voters of Maine had different ideas. They have not gone as far as AZ or CA passing constitutional amendments banning gay marriage, but I believe this sends the message that the people are not ready for it right now. Give it a few more years and the people of Maine will most likely fall in line with the rest of the New Englander's.
