A new poll shows gays losing marriage in Maine 48 percent to 46 percent.

“We knew (from the Prop 8 battle in California) what the opposition was going to say (in the current battle in Maine). … Shouldn’t we have had an ad on the air already addressing these specific concerns before the Yes on 1 opened their lying mouths? … We need to kill their arguments before they even voice them. We need to tell Mainers: ‘You’re going to hear that marriage is going to be taught in schools, but you have the power to decide that yourself in your districts. You’re going to hear that your church is going to be sued, but you already have protections in place by law. The other side is going to try and confuse this issue, to state things that are not in the law. They want to mislead you. They will lie to you. This is not about curriculum, not about religion. What this is about is civil marriage for all. It’s about protecting families. It’s about being fair.’ But that’s just a start. It’s got to hit harder. Expose the lies as lies.”
