Yet more on the “tolerance” of opposing views from the neutered marriage crowd:
PORTLAND – “Yes on One” political signs from Portland to Biddeford have been vandalized. The signs, advocating the repeal of a law legalizing gay marriage in Maine, are being defaced with spray-painted depictions of a cross, an equals sign, and a swastika, likening religious opposition to gay marriage to Nazism.
In a statement regarding the vandalism, Scott Fish, spokesman for the Yes on One campaign, said: “Given the consistent awful rhetoric of the No on One campaign, it is no surprise their supporters are acting in awful ways.”
“The only way to make sure people you agree with can speak is to support the rights of people you don’t agree with.” –Eleanor Holmes Norton
