Over the weekend, Dan Demeritt, the former communications director for Maine’s extreme Tea Party governor, published an op-ed in the Portland Press Herald announcing his support for marriage equality.
It’s a pretty remarkable endorsement, considering that he worked for such a right-wing administration. It also follows the launch of Republicans United for Marriage, a subset of Mainers United for Marriage.
Maine law currently denies committed same-sex couples an equal chance to celebrate and protect through marriage the lives they have built together. If ours is truly a free and fair society, government should not treat one class of adult differently from another. Couples willing to share a life together should have equal access to a civil marriage license, regardless of sexual orientation.
