Prop 8 backers have a new website – and six stupid lies to support their prejudice

Earlier we reported on how the bigots backing Prop 8 redesigned their web site to try and attract younger voters.
They are at it again.
This time they have paid (hopefully big bucks) to distribute a news release deceptively titled “Young Voters Warn Californians About Impact of Gay Marriage.”
Yes friends, we got trouble right here in River City.
You see “Young adults desperately warn voters about the unfavorable consequences of same-sex marriage before November’s election!”
Yes, “Those in favor of Proposition 8, the marriage amendment which defines marriage as only between a man and a woman, are using social internet utilities to inform Californians about the negative impact of same-sex marriage”.
Yup: they have announced Whatisprop8.com, their new website officially! I am sure it is “was cool,” even “radical!”
Whatisprop8.com webmaster Kenny McNett says:
“The reason why many people are not in favor of Proposition 8 is that they are not informed on how it may negatively impact their lives. We created whatisprop8.com to inform voters of the direct and indirect consequences of same-sex marriage.” The website is a repository of articles, editorials, and news reports of court cases surrounding the issue. Whatisprop8.com is already gaining considerable momentum. Last week there were fewer than 200 unique visitors; this week it has already drawn over 2000 unique visitors.”
We’ll save you the trip: here are 6 lies the bigots have on their site.
Lie # 1:
Children in public schools will have to be taught that same-sex marriage is just as good as traditional marriage.
This is pure bull. What the schools teach won’t be affected by Prop 8 one way or another.
Churches may be sued over their tax exempt status if they refuse to allow same-sex marriage ceremonies in their religious buildings open to the public.
This is an absolute lie and they should know it. Nothing in current law requires any church to perform a same sex marriage nor are their spaces cindered to be “public accodmodatiosn” like a hotel that rents reception spaces for a profit.
Religious adoption agencies will be challenged by government agencies to give up their long-held right to place children only in homes with both a mother and a father.
This has already happened and won’t be affected if Prop 8 is defeated.
Religions that sponsor private schools with married student housing may be required to provide housing for same-sex couples, even if counter to church doctrine, or risk lawsuits over tax exemptions and related benefits.
Like there are any gay married Mormons who would be admitted to a Mormon college.
Ministers who preach against same-sex marriages may be sued for hate speech and risk government fines. It already happened in Canada, a country that legalized gay marriage.
This is so stupid it is almost embarrassing. Unlike Canada, we have a Bill of Rights that precludes suing pastors for hate speech. That is why the “Rev.” Fred Phelps still goes around to the funerals of US Servicememebers with his “God Hates Fags” signs. T
It will cost you money. This change in the definition of marriage will bring a cascade of lawsuits.
That has not happened in Massachusetts, so why would it happen here? And even if it does, how does a suit between tow private parties “cost” taxpayers money?
