We always knew their campaign would culminate in a con(junction)

by Jeremy Hooper

Last night, Stand For Marriage Maine sent out the following:

(highlighting and phone number redaction is ours)
200910311045

No word if the campaign is also nearing other conjunctions such as "but," "or," or "so." Though considering the way their fallacious tactics have chapped our arses over the past months, their campaign is definitely pushing us to have a "so-or but"!

Yes, it-[apostrophe]-s possible that we should focus on actual educational issues like proper punctuation rather than false fear-mongered "issues" like the homosexual agenda™.

They obviously have a hate on apostrophes. Maybe they think they are gay? Look at cant in the first line of their GOTV message.

I have not found the chapter and verse in the bible that addresses punctuation...guess there is none.

Yea, Bob Miller, I think at Calvary Chapel they don't use text books to teach from, so they probably don't care much about proper English. They also count in scores and cubits too - fuck that metric system!

Jeremy,
Thought you might be interested in this. I was on the news for both. Sometimes progressive things happen in Tennessee.

I think it's because most proofreaders are in favor of marriage equality.
All the ones I know are, anyway.
