SACRAMENTO The Protectmarriage.com Yes on 8 campaign today challenged Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack OConnell and the No on 8 campaign to a live, televised debate this weekend so voters can learn the truth about the issue of gay marriage being taught in California public schools. The Yes on 8 Campaign, in a letter from Campaign Manager Frank Schubert to No on 8 Campaign Manager Steve Smith, said the more substantive forum will settle the issue once and for all and prove that gay marriage will be taught in public schools if Proposition 8 fails.
The No on Proposition 8 campaign has been airing television and radio ads featuring Jack OConnell accusing us of running a shameful campaign, said Ron Prentice, chairman of Protectmarriage.com Yes on 8. There is nothing shameful about telling the truth. This is the most critical issue of the campaign. Voters deserve an opportunity to hear for themselves what will happen, and indeed what is already happening, if we do not restore traditional marriage in California on Election Day. Given his strong statements, Im sure OConnell will have no problem accepting.
The debate challenge comes as it becomes increasingly clear that indoctrination of young school children about gay marriage is already happening. The so-called public relations nightmare of a San Francisco first grade class being taken on an official school field trip to a lesbian wedding was followed last week by a Hayward elementary school having a National Coming Out Day for kindergarteners, instruction in which parents were told they could not opt-out according to recent news accounts.
Protectmarriage.com Yes on 8 campaign asks that Superintendent OConnell accept this challenge to a live, televised debate by tomorrow, Oct. 29, 2008 at 9:00 a.m.
Awesome. No way will he show up. No way he’s about to go on TV and defend what the schools are doing to our kids. I can hear the discussions about whether to debate or not going something like this...”ok, let prop 8 pass! But we CAN’T talk about what we teach them NOW on statewide TV with everyone watching! We’ll lose the vote AND who knows what else when parents find all of this out! Forget it! Stay home and let them have Prop 8!”
I appears this guy (Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack OConnell) is a bit truth challenged. Well okay, he’s a damned liar.
I love it when these people are called on the carpet!
Does anybody know if this is likely to pass?

Such a debate would reveal truth. I don’t think that’s a goal that ranks very high for the No on 8 people.
