"As for education, children are already being raised by gay couples. Those children attend our schools, and have for decades. If Sally's two dads come to an elementary school awards night, or if Billy's two moms come to the school concert, the relationships may become a topic of discussion at school the next day. Whether Sally's or Billy's same-sex parents are married or living together does not change the discussion the teacher might facilitate."

--Bangor Daily News editorial staff, in response to claims from the right that children will be taught gay marriage in schools
