Lewiston -- Mike Heath and Paul Madore are concerned about a new political action committee called "Protect Marriage Maine."  An article published on a blog called "Catholic Maine" indicates the PAC was announced on April 23, 2012 and formed on April 20th.  The article reports that the Protect Marriage Maine PAC will "lead the campaign" against sodomy based "marriage."

"They're a little late,"  said Paul Madore, co-chair of the No Special Rights PAC.  "We got started years ago and haven't heard boo from them."

The executive director of the Christian Civic League of Maine, Carroll Conley, promised to organize a "broad and deep campaign across the state of Maine."  Pastor Bob Emrich, the Chairman of the Protect Marriage Maine PAC promised to work with Muslims.

Mike Heath couldn't help but observe the irony in Emrich's promise to organize the "entire community of faith."  In 2009 he refused to work with Heath claiming that Heath couldn't be trusted.  Heath was then the leader of the Christian Civic League of Maine.

"He'll work with Maine's Muslims but not with us?"  said Heath.  "While we are eager to work with anyone who will fight sodomy based 'marriage' -- including Muslims -- we wonder why Reverend Emrich willfully excludes us."

Heath and Madore are not surprised by this power grab by the monied interests in the pro family movement.  They expected it, and will not allow it to deter them in their effort to win this campaign.
