Maine--Bill Outlawing Clergy from Solemnizing Marriages Stopped Cold

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

Your voice was heard!

Thanks in part to the many, many phone calls you made, the Joint
Standing Committee on the Judiciary voted unanimously yesterday "ought
not to pass" on L.D. 799, the bill that would have made it illegal for
clergy to solemnize marriages.

In fact, the committee did not even follow the usual practice of
holding a hearing one day and voting on a subsequent day. They voted
immediately. They were fed up, just like most of the citizens of
Maine.

This is a tremendous victory for marriage and the family as it has
been understood and defended for thousands of year of Western
Civilization.

We hope Representative Boyd Marley (D- Portland), the sponsor of L.D.
799, has heard the voice of the people.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom.

Sincerely Yours,

Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Staff Attorney
