"Cover Story" piece on a proposed gay rights bill recently drafted with concessions to the Catholic Church. The Maine Civil Liberties Union is the first organization to public oppose the revised bill, which was unveiled by the Maine Lesbian/Gay Political Alliance and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland earlier this month. In its latest incarnation, all religious entities are exempted, which means that an organization like Catholic Charities of Maine, which gets about 85 percent of its funding from the state, could not be prosecuted for discriminating against gays or lesbians. With comparisons to similar laws in other states.
