Maine voters next month will consider a people's veto referendum on the state's
Maine voters next month will consider a people's veto referendum on the state's new gay-rights law. For Maine's religious homosexuals, Christianity is struggle. Cindy Solomon of Saco, a conservative, lesbian and minister in the Metropolitan Church, says it is easier to come out as a gay in society than to be religious in the gay community. Marvin Ellison, a gay who is a professor at Bangor Theological Seminary, is ordained in the Presbyterian Church, and says his ordination could be challenged because of his sexual orientation. Victoria Zavasnik, a former nun, says she is more openly religious than she is openly gay. Details; related article on how church groups are splitting on the referendum.
