Gay marriage opponents are disputing a claim by Maine's attorney general that the state's same-sex marriage law will not affect curriculum in the public schools.
In an opinion released Sunday, Attorney General Janet Mills wrote, "The state's definition of marriage has no bearing on the curricula for public schools."
However, the Stand for Marriage Campaign replied to Mill's statement that there's nothing in the law to prevent same-sex marriage from being taught.
The group also notes that gay marriage has already been taught in Massachusetts where it's legal.
"We have demonstrated how it could be taught in schools, and that it has been taught in other states that have legalized gay marriage," the group said. "It's a shame that Maine's top lawyer is using her good office for such a transparent political stunt."
Maine voters will decide next month whether to veto the state's new law legalizing same-sex marriage.
