Abstract

"Stop the Presses" piece detailing the repercussions that followed distribution of "The Gay Agenda," a newspaper insert created and paid for by Paul Volle, head of the Christian Coalition of Maine, and distributed by the Portland Press Herald on Oct. 28 to its readers in South Portland and Falmouth. The author also compares the advertising policy of the Casco Bay Weekly (CBW) as it relates to "smut ads," "adult entertainment ads," and even hate-mongering, to The Gay Agenda incident. Previous CBW editors and publishers, including Wayne Curtis and Seth Sprague, took the position that any ad viewed as legal should be accepted, because to reject it would be to violate someone's First Amendment rights.
