Maine needs a learning curve

You’d think this Maine legislator would’ve notice what happened in Indiana.

 A state senator said Thursday he will propose a bill similar to the so-called religious freedom laws that have generated a backlash and protests in Indiana and Arkansas…

Sen. David Burns, R-Whiting, said he’s moving forward with the proposal in Maine despite a national controversy that includes boycotts by gay-rights activists against Indiana businesses, sanctions by other states and even a call to move the NCAA Final Four basketball tournament from Indianapolis. Businesses, including Wal-Mart and Apple, also have urged states to reject the proposals.
