Video: Recipe for a "traditional marriage" victory:
Start with the idea that civil rights should be put to majority vote
Add copious amounts of NOM money.
Stir in every last ounce of personal faith you can find (regardless of if you're working in a civil kitchen)
Sprinkle with the deceptive stratagem that Frank Schubert calls a career
Mix in hurtful words like "oxymoronic"
Boil gay people's blood without hesitation or worry:
Do these halfwits think that their schools won't be teaching about gay marriage - what about their neighboring states and Canada - the catholics and those who voted this very foolhearty legislation should purchase a portion of the state and set it adrift in the ocean and be their own little island unto themselves. They may tell their children Maine is the Garden of Eden and we don't have any gays and we don't allow gay marriage - but their children are going to learn about gays and gay marriage - many, many of their children are going to BE gay children (heaven forbid a good christian family having anathama spring from their loins)- they think God is smiling down on them but they are wrong. No visits to Maine from this vacation spender - ta ta! I hope your friendly neighborhood rights takers spend ALL of their time and money in your state. tsk, tsk, tsk!

Here's why the Yes on 1 campaign failed. They said it was all about keeping the issue out of schools. Well guess what - tens of thousands of Maine public schoolchildren will be discussing gay marriage today.
Any Social Studies teacher who refrains from discussing his or her state's election is outright negligent and should be fired. Of COURSE they're going to be talking about it today, and none of NOM's transparent lies are going to change that.

As Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "An unjust law is a code that a numerical or power majority group compels a minority group to obey but does not make binding on itself. This is difference made legal. By the same token, a just law is a code that a majority compels a minority to follow and that it is willing to follow itself."
We'll get there. We just have to keep fighting.
