To revoke or not? Maine voters to decide gay marriage law

The World

“Question 1” on Tuesday’s ballots in Maine, much like last year’s “Proposition 8” in California, would explicitly revoke recently granted marriage rights for gay and lesbian couples in Maine if it passes. The initiative asks:
“Do you want to reject the new law that lets same-sex couples marry and allows individuals and religious groups to refuse to perform these marriages?”

Abby Goodnough, from The New York Times, gives us an overview of the initiative and its national significance. We’re also joined by Shenna Bellows, from Maine’s ACLU; and Brian Souchet, from the anti-gay-marriage group Stand for Marriage Maine.
