Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson Talks Marriage in Maine
New Hampshire-based gay Episcopal bishop Gene Robinson arrived in Maine yesterday as a supporter of 'No on 1' to talk about marriage as election day approaches.
He gave an interview to the Fox affiliate in Portland and spoke at an event for the Religious Coalition for the Freedom to Marry in Maine, a group made up of 18 denominations and groups and over 200 clergy who support same-sex marriage.

In related Maine marriage news, the state's Attorney General released a statement yesterday in response to a request from Education Commissioner Susan Gendron after claims by anti-gay groups that the state's marriage equality laws would somehow affect teaching in schools.
Said AG Janet Mills: "Whatever the benefits and burdens of the civil institution of marriage, the state’s definition of marriage has no bearing on the curricula in our public schools, either under the current law or under LD 1020."
