Gay Rights Law Now in Effect

Maine today becomes the last state in New England to bar discrimination based on sexual orientation. Despite the Christian Civic League of Maine's statement that this measure is "the harbinger of the death of a civilization," the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are nowhere to be seen.
The law took effect quietly and without fanfare. The Human Rights Commission expected no flood of complaints because the gay rights law is not retroactive.

"We've been getting calls occasionally and told people we can't accept complaints until today," commission Executive Director Patricia Ryan said Wednesday. "We don't expect to get 10 or 20 or 50 such calls." [Link]
