A topless march downtown in Farmington today has the town and much of Maine in an uproar. In the photo in this Sun Journal story by Staff Writer Donna Perry is a sign with a message on it with a very loosely interpreted Bible passage. "God created us naked and he liked it."
It is sourced to the book of Genisis, the creation chapter, in the Bible but the actual verse reads more along the lines of, "God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day."
Conservative Christians in Maine and around the region are concerned this march will prompt a whole round of sinning and have further linked it to their homosexual agenda saying the march is meant to promote gay and lesbian rights.
The marchers have said they are only hoping to remind people that going topless in Maine is legal, both for men and women and are hoping to get people used to that idea. The March starts at 1 p.m. and the temperatures are expected to be in the high 50s and low 60s in the region.
It should be an interesting event.
