Proposition 8 – Who’s Really Lying?

I found this great article on Yahoo News. One of the major issues in the Prop 8 debate centers on whether or not homosexuality and same-sex marriage will be taught in public schools. Recently, No on 8 spent millions on new commercials stating that claiming same-sex marriage will be taught in schools is a lie. From the No on 8 website:

Here’s what’s fiction and what’s fact:
Fiction: Teaching children about same-sex marriage will happen here unless we pass Prop 8.
Fact: Not one word in Prop 8 mentions education, and no child can be forced, against the will of their parents, to be taught anything about health and family issues at school. California law prohibits it, and the Yes on 8 campaign knows they are lying. Sacramento Superior Court Judge Timothy Frawley has already ruled that this claim by Prop 8 proponents is “false and misleading.”

But, these same organizations who finance the No on 8 campaign were the ones who fought in Massachusetts for same-sex marriage to be taught in schools. Sounds pretty deceitful to me. See the article below:

    yeah, they want you to believe that gay marriage won’t be taught in the schools. however, it’s already the law that they will have to teach about families and marriage. therefore, if the definition of marriage is not defined as being between a man and a woman, then it will be taught in the public schools that any two people can be married. so yes, gay marriage will be taught in the public schools if prop 8 does not pass.

    VOTE YES ON PROP 8!!!!

    The more I’m involved in this campaign, the more I see the face of the other side, the more I realize, these are not your average happy go lucky people with merely a different opinion. There are elements of the Gay movement that are out for blood. It’s these activist groups that persuade us to hand over more and more of our rights. I’m realizing that even if we win this thing in California….this issue isn’t beaten. It’s only the beginning. We’ve got to fight for a constitutional amendment at the federal level. Winning California will give us the momentum we need to launch a national campaign. We need to do it.

    I think the groundwork has been laid in the California fight for a huge nationwide backlash against the gay rights movement. We are feeling the tide turning out here in the trenches. We are going to win this thing. We’ve been out in the streets, in our neighborhoods and I can feel the wind shifting in our favor. The support is growing, the tide is changing. It’s incredible.

    We’ve got to do more of what we’ve been doing….but get it going at a national level. Talk about it to our neighbors, write about it to the editors of our newspapers. The gay lobby has incredible amounts of money, but we have numbers on our side. The vast majority of the US wants no part of gay marriage in their state. If proposition 8 passes in California, we will have a mandate that could help turn the tide in our favor. We should use that momentum to get a constitutional amendment to the US Constitution. If we leave the decision up to the Supreme Court, there is a chance that it would lose and the price is too high to risk that. We’d see all fifty states fall at once if the Supreme Court went left on us.

    The only way to protect this nation is to specify the obvious—marriage is between a man and a woman— only on a national level. The voters will support it, the question is if our legislators will support it. The longer we wait on the issue though, the slimmer our chances get. Awareness is growing now. Now is the time to move on it.

    The evidence is in and it’s mounting:
    Prop. 8 is about American Freedom for all of us (you, me, and same-sexuals).,,
    I’m proud to stand with you and vote YES! On Prop. 8 because it’s about America and her liberty for all.
