Jesus Dosen't Like Video Poker

A faltering campaign to force a statewide vote on a proposal to ban slot machines in Maine has received an eleventh-hour boost from two conservative Christian groups.

The Christian Civic League of Maine and the Maine Grassroots Coalition have allied themselves with No Slots for ME!, a group trying to collect the 50,519 voter signatures needed to put the measure on the ballot next year. The anti-gambling group has been conducting the campaign for 11 months, but is still roughly 25,000 signatures short of its goal and faces an Oct. 4 deadline for submitting petitions.

With experience in citizen petition campaigns, the Christian Civic League of Maine and the Maine Grassroots Coalition provide the anti-gambling effort with volunteers and a network of contacts in 200 evangelical churches across Maine.
