Today’s News: Polling, Fear Mongering and More Lies

October 26, 2009

It’s almost as though my letter to Marc Mutty, Maggie Gallagher, Brian Brown and Bishop Malone was answered with this possible Yes on 1 ad script that is circulating.

School Administrator (talking to an off-camera mic/reporter–as he talks, we see images of teachers in classrooms reading from blurred-out books, GLSEN-style posters, etc.):

No, we’re very proud of the new curriculum. It’s all about teaching kids to embrace different lifestyles and explore their own sexuality.

Switching from images of sex ed classrooms to little boy on a bench in a darkened school hallway. We can see an adult male (not his face, we’re looking from the perspective of the child and the view never includes his head) come out of an office, take the boy’s hand, lead him into the office, and close the door. Freeze on the closed door, which has a sign that says, “Counseling Session: Do Not Disturb”

Reporter (VO): Yes, but is it appropriate for kindergartners to be receiving counseling about whether they might be gay?

School Admin (VO): Sure, we’ve had a few complaints, but there’s not much parents can do. It’s the law, after all.

VO: Think gay marriage won’t affect your family? Think again.


New polling shows No on 1 up.

Pan Atlantic’s Patrick Murphy says the survey of 400 likely voters found 53 percent opposing Question 1, which would repeal Maine’s gay marriage law, while 42 percent favor the measure and six percent remain undecided. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent.

Rep. Chellie Pingree steps up yet again for marriage equality in Maine.  Everyone should take note that she is the only member of Congress from Maine willing to step up to the plate on this issue.

And Marc Mutty starts attacking Hannah Pingree.

Jeremy at Good As You posted a great series looking closely at the beliefs of the people paying for most of the Stand for Marriage Maine campaign.  Worth a read/watch.
