Gay-marriage campaigns on verge of unleashing their ads
Seattle Times ^ | Aug 21 2012 | Lornett Turnbull

While on paper the same-sex-marriage fight seems financially mismatched, it is what's not on paper that could influence results in November.

On paper, it has every appearance of a mismatched fight: The campaign to legalize same-sex marriage in Washington state has out-raised its opponents by about 13 to 1.

Washington United for Marriage, which is seeking to affirm the state's same-sex marriage law through approval of Referendum 74, has nearly $6 million in a campaign war chest — more than half of it from a few prominent local donors with deep pockets.

Its opponent, meanwhile, Preserve Marriage Washington, has so far raised $438,000, about 10 percent of its campaign goal of $4 million. Mostly in increments of $50 and $100, the donations are coming from folks you've probably never heard of, many of them retirees and most in far-flung areas of the state.

But it might well be what's not on paper that influences how this fight will end.

What has so far been a game of wait and see between the two camps is expected to explode over the next 11 weeks into a fierce clash for the hearts of Washington voters.

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM), which has stated its commitment to defeating same-sex marriage across the country, is expected at some point to drop big money in this state and in Maryland, Maine and Minnesota, where it has also partnered with local campaigns to defeat same-sex marriage.

Perhaps someone should explain to these people the law of unintended consequences.

If you define a marriage as no longer between one man and one woman, as they are proposing, you throw open the doors to all other sorts of arrangements.

This includes polygamy.

And THAT would RADICALLY increase the number of Muslims in America.

AND we ALL know what Islamists think of homosexuals - ask Achmadinejab.

Everything these heterophobic clowns do blows up in their faces.

This will, too.

Yes, that’s it homos, show the world your sickness in commercials and then be amazed that you’re not gaining supporters but actually losing them.

Just as the Chick-Fil-A protests hurt their cause, so will this. The homos are getting in everyone’s faces with their sexual perversions and I don’t think that is a winning strategy for them.

Love it when liberal fools self destruct.

Just release a counter-ad that shows holes cut in the partitions between toilets at a public restroom with an overdub that explains exactly what they’re for.

How about an ad stating “Even a fifth grader knows you can ferilize fecal matter, so why do homosexuals still try?”
