There’s a simple reason we didn't win in Maine: we’ve failed to make our cause a universal battle for civil rights. We have to tell our fellow citizens that supporting marriage equality is more about their children than ours.

They have more offspring and, statistically, are far more likely to have gay or lesbian children. [Link]
