Republican group joins campaign for the Freedom to Marry in Maine

This is good news. From Maine Insights:

Mainers United for Marriage and the American Civil Liberties Union of Maine today introduced a new partner, Republicans United for Marriage, in the campaign to win the freedom to marry.

“Allowing all loving, committed couples to marry isn’t about political parties. Across Maine, Republicans, Democrats and Independents are working together to support the freedom to marry,” said Matt McTighe, campaign manager for Mainers United for Marriage. “Our campaign is about talking to one another, building bridges and finding common ground. We’re proud to welcome Republicans United for Marriage to our campaign.”

“I voted against same-sex marriage in 2009, but I changed my mind,” said Rep. Stacey Fitts, a Pittsfield Republican. “I know some gay people and I’ve talked with them and with my family, and I’ve thought about it a lot. As a husband and a father, I’ve come to believe that two people who love each other should have the freedom to get married.”

Small steps make up a journey from here to there, and with those small steps I see us getting there; getting to equality closer and closer each day.
