Boo-freaking-hoo in Maine

Get out the tiny violin for these bible-beaters…

A group that has spent years battling LGBT civil rights in Maine is out of money and says it will likely have to lay off staff.

The Christian Civic League of Maine is pleading with supporters for cash, but it appears after a series of high profile defeats the plea is falling on deaf ears. The organization spent all of the money it had for the first quarter of 2006 on last year’s effort to repeal the state’s LGBT civil rights protections. It was signed by Governor John Baldacci in March of 2005

“Our income for this year thus far, is far below our expenses,” the group says in a message appealing for emergency funds on its Web site. “That is putting us at a severe disadvantage. If this does not turn around very soon, we will be forced to make some disastrous cuts in the services.
