Homosexual movement begins massive campaign to win "gay marriage" vote in Maine this November
August 21, 2009
On Thursday, August 20, the homosexual movement formally began its massive multi-million dollar campaign to win - for the first time in America - a state-wide vote on homosexual "marriage". The Maine homosexual lobby, which is largely organized and funded (through GLAD and others) in Massachusetts, began broadcasting a slick, well-honed TV commercial statewide .
Also on Thursday the homosexual lobby revealed their plans to bring in waves of "volunteers" from other states to campaign on the ground up until the November election (see below)s.
"Gay marriage" law passed by Maine Legislature last May
Back in early May the Maine Legislature passed a homosexual "marriage" law, which was quickly signed by Governor John Baldacci (a left-wing Democrat who, among other things, was criticized in 2006 for meeting with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro).
"People's Veto" to force to a vote this November!
Immediately after the Maine law was passed, pro-family activists filed for a "People's Veto", which would stop the law from going into effect and force it to a state-wide vote. This required gathering 55,000 signatures over approximately 90 days to bring it to a vote of the people in the Nov. 4 elections. On July 31, pro-family activists turned in over 100,000 signatures! Thus, a vote will take place this year.
Huge campaign by homosexual lobby begins
Make no mistake about it: the homosexual lobby is absolutely determined to win this one. Most important, winning this election in Maine is a national goal for the homosexual movement. It would have effects in California and other places.
First wave of attack started this week
As the first wave of attack, on Thursday the Massachusetts-based "Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders" (GLAD), which is coordinating much of the Maine campaign, released an incredibly slick, well-crafted TV commercial that's being broadcast across Maine.
Ground attack - bringing in pro-gay "volunteers" from across USA
Also this week the homosexual lobby announced their plans to bring in waves of "volunteers" from all across the country. They will be professionally trained to begin their "person-to-person" blitzkrieg across the state, during the weeks leading up to the election. This operation is called "Volunteer Vacation".
Once you arrive in Maine, you will receive a full orientation and be assigned to a team, where you will be trained on various aspects of the campaign. The campaign will provide housing . . . You will be trained on everything you need to know to be successful. Volunteer-Vacation is designed for folks who want to volunteer, full-time, to help recruit other volunteers, campaign person-to-person with voters, and to run the Get-Out-the-Vote operation necessary to win the election.
They're out to win this one
As we said, the national homosexual movement is taking this very seriously. They are using their "lessons learned" from other states here. They believe that a win in Maine will have domino effect in California, Iowa, and other states across the country.
