Let me break down why the Maine referendum hurts. In the Bible belt, people may be intolerant, but I know where I stand. Maine likes to pretend it's tolerant and claims a "live and let live" mentality. Well, that didn't materialize. At least not when it comes to minorities or civil rights. So yes, I will boycott Maine. How Maine votes is their business, but please, don't ever claim to be libertarian, because that would be simply disingenuous.
