Apparently Liars Can Win--Just Ask MaineIt's the day after election day and a year after the Prop. 8 fiasco in California. And what do we have to show for it? Another loss for marriage equality.
It's amazing to me that we lost again. I'm not quite as devastated as I was last year with Prop. 8, but maybe that's just because I prepared myself for this possibility this time. That's not a good thing, though.
So, we lost again, and to liars no less. Blatant liars. I'm not really sure how it's legal to run a campagin based on lies. After it was all said and done, they still got their untrue message out, and the average person didn't realize they were being lied to. I guess they think God will be proud of them. They may have lied, but at least the gays didn't win.
The good news is that we won in Washington and Kalamazoo. Those aren't exactly the same significance as Maine, but at least they're something. Now we just have to figure out how to let everyone else know that lying isn't something we are going to stand for. I'd assume that's part of everyone's value system.
