WOW...I had no idea we were so well organized...
But while I'm waiting on my contact to deliver another copy of the secret agenda, lets take this apart, shall we?....
Gay activists throughout the nation are pushing homosexual marriage across New England.
Translation: Fair mindedness and equality are spreading into Maine from surrounding areas but its just easier for us to blame and vilify all gay people as "activists".
They've poured over Four Million dollars into Maine and...
Really?...Four Million...That's soooo awesome. especially since Every Dime...litterally...every cent that "No On 1" has received has come from the pocketbooks of everyday people that probably could have used that money for something else. "No On 1"s contributions have come from regular people...Not so "Yes On 1"s campaign who received a great deal of their money from the National Organization for Marriage, the Catholic church, and other high profile anti-gay lobbying groups. Which is Why the "Yes ON 1" campaign doesn't want its donors list revealed. How much have anti-gay special interest groups poured into Maine?...Hmmm?
One of the gripes we, as gay people, have had with our large organizations (HRC anyone?) is that they have NOT gotten involved in individual states fights for marriage equality. Did they donate?...yes...but not anywhere near the amount of money that the other side received from their large benefactors. That has been rather a thorn in HRC's side...why are they not helping?....still no answer to that.
they're already pushing their agenda in Maine Schools. "No On 1" leaders are behind and official Maine commission report recommending gay teachers come out at school as a role model to students.
Really?...Maybe that's where my copy of the agenda went! And If your a gay teacher or a gay anything, it aught to be alright to come out without fear of a good ol' fashioned "burning at the stake"...dontcha think? The point of coming out as a teacher is not to turn kids gay...which is an impossibility by the way...but to let them live the same healthy life all of us should be afforded. And perhaps to be a role model for the gay kids that are ALREADY in schools and...quite frankly, already gay too. Our history is littered with stories of their suicides...haven't enough of our children died by their own hand for us to realize that making them suffer in silence is a mistake?!!
They want gay friendly books in daycare facilities
This is another of those fear inducing quotes meant to make all gay people look as if we are out to convert children to gayness from birth. Instead...perhaps there are gay families attending those same preschools who would like to have their family acknowledged in the same manner that heterosexual families are...and stories are a part of that. I know my four and half year old daughter would love to sit down with a copy of "King and King" which would still somehow morph into a story about Cinderella and Prince Charming anyway....considering Preschoolers DON'T' KNOW HOW TO READ!
and to appoint gay advocates in every school building.
Oops...this must be the gay gestapo right?...perhaps this could also be a single person whose job it would also be to answer the phones, give out hall passes, serve lunch, or...maybe...I don't know...teach? Because many of the types of people who do the job of liaison are already doing many other jobs in the school system because budget restrictions force schools to make their employees wear many hats.
Also, if there is a sympathetic ear for a gay kid to talk to, so he doesn't hang himself isn't that a good thing?! This persons job is not homosexual thought police, it is to make sure that the needs of gay kids, already out there, are getting met.
Its already happened here, don't be fooled!
Be afraid!...Be very very afraid!....that way you won't think clearly and will vote anyway we point you.
Gay marriage WILL be taught in Maine schools unless we vote yes on question 1!
Acknowledging the existence and right to common respect and courtesy for ALL people is what is taught in schools and that is being taught right now. In that regard this ad is correct and voting on marriage equality effects that not one bit. But in the assertion that homosexuality is being forced on children as an option for them is complete bullsh-t. So the Mantra "Its already happened in Massachusetts!" has been applied to Maine. Again...they are using the pressure to be afraid. They want you to be afraid of gays because they want you to believe we are out to get the children...or out to destroy marriage...or unravel American society. Kind of like "SPECTOR" from James Bond.
I guess in the absence of someone to fear outside (Communist Russia, The Taliban, Al Qaida) we are turning that manic fear in on ourselves.
Don't let it happen people..."A house divided cannot stand"
