It took me about eight hours but I got there.

I privately railed against the Church all day after learning that Catholic Charities reclaimed their program funding at agency due to that agency's public opposition of the repeal of Maine's short-lived, same-sex marriage law.

While making dinner tonight, though, I remembered that United Way of Greater Portland also stopped funding programs at an agency because we disagreed with their internal practices. We still celebrate that decision today and proudly stand behind our non-discrimination policy.

Two decisions based on belief.

Two very different ways of seeing the world.
