Maine attorney and education board member Joan Phillips-Sandy: Same-sex marriages would have no bearing on Maine public school curricula

10/28/09 Kennebec Journal:

Joan Phillips-Sandy is a Maine attorney and member of the Waterville Board of Education. Citing a recent opinion by Maine's attorney general, she argues that the state's Act To End Discrimination in Civil Marriage and Affirm Religious Freedom would have no impact on whether public schools teach students about "gay marriage." She also observes that gay and lesbian families are a reality among other non-traditional families, and that children of gay parents should have the protections that the marriage law would confer.
