Death Threats Follow Historic Marriage Win in Maine

mike_heath

Mike Heath, of the Maine Family Policy Council, has led two successful statewide drives to turn back “sexual orientation” (homosexuality) laws in Maine, in 1998 and 2001, and most recently was involved in the Question 1 effort to support marriage between a man and a woman.

Reprinted from the Christian Civic League of Maine website:

Nov 6, 2009

The normal routine of the League was interrupted Friday afternoon, when an anonymous caller called to say he owned guns and his next target was the former director of the League, Mike Heath (above). The death threat was apparently related to the recent win on Question 1, which revoked the right of homosexuals to be married in Maine.

The caller said the following:

“I am calling about Mr. Mike Heath, the Executive of your Christian Civic League of Maine.  He thinks that gay people should have our rights revoked that we already have. Well I can tell him this – I’m a gay guy who owns guns, and he’s my next target.”

In a second round of threats,

Matt Barber, Liberty Counsel’s Director of Cultural Affairs, issued a statement shortly after Maine’s marriage victory (posted with additional commentary at AmericansForTruth.com). In reaction to that statement, blog poster “ColdCountry” wrote: “Will someone please give me a gun?” Poster “Fritz” warned: “What I fear is that once gay and lesbian people give up hope of achieving equality through nonviolent means, there will be radicals who will begin to hunt down haters… All it will take is a small group of radical zealots who are willing to kill for their cause.”

In reply to Fritz, “tex” posted: “Fritz….you say this like it’s a bad thing? Maybe a bit of well organized terrorism is just what we need.”

“This happens in all cases where people are oppressed and lack representation,” continued Fritz. “We will have gay and lesbian people strapping bombs to their chests and blowing up churches. All it will take is one or two more losses like this. If marriage equality is taken away in one of the landmark states, we will see domestic terrorism arise very quickly. … In 1991, I witnessed gay and lesbian activists setting fire to buildings and beating people with baseball bats in Los Angeles.”

“tex” reiterated: “Still not seeing this as a bad thing Fritz … [African gay activists] didn’t gain their civil rights through being passive.”

In addition to Barber, pro-family leaders Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth and Maggie Gallagher of the National Organization for Marriage were specifically named targets. (source)

Everyone is free to believe as they wish, and to act upon those beliefs, even to promote them. That is all guaranteed under the freedoms of the Constitution. What is not guaranteed is the right to impose those beliefs on others.  Threats, intimidation, slander, libel and licentious tyranny have become the new standard for the activist gay movement.

Where’s the tolerance?  Better yet, where is the condemnation by the leaders of the activist gay movement of these types of tactics?  What?  Don’t hear anything?  Maybe it’s because their leaders feel the same way.  See No on 1 leader, Jesse Connolly’s tolerance on parade here:

“In a defiant speech to several hundred lingering supporters, No on 1 campaign manager Jesse Connolly pledged that his side “will not quit until we know where every single one of these votes lives.” —Bangor Daily News

How many instances will it take before the activist gay movement reigns in their supporters?

Win in Maine—Opposition Vows Revenge

Win in Maine—Opposition Vows Revenge

Excellent election last night.  I stayed up late watching the returns come in.  Despite the odds, the opining of the opposition etc predicting 5-2 we’d lose…. and in a liberal state that didn’t even think twice about raising taxes amid economic hardship or legalizing marijuana, Yes on 1 pulled through! We were outmanned, outspent, but not out of faith.

On the other side, the gnashing of teeth began as No on 1′s Jesse Connolly vowed to take personal revenge:

“In a defiant speech to several hundred lingering supporters, No on 1 campaign manager Jesse Connolly pledged that his side “will not quit until we know where every single one of these votes lives.” —Bangor Daily News

And tolerance has yet another field day on the opposition’s side.  But we knew that didn’t we?  That’s one of the reasons why this vote was so crucial.

Excellent fight!  Congratulations Maine!

From CRI: Same-Sex Marriage Law in Maine Overturned by Popular Vote
In another victory for pro-family Americans, Maine voters sent a message to their leaders on Tuesday that traditional marriage should be upheld. By a vote of 53% to 47%, voters overturned a law enacted by the Maine legislature that would have allowed homosexual couples to marry. If upheld, the law would have made Maine the sixth state allowing homosexual marriage, and the first state in which the people’s vote allowed the law to stand. Maine is the 31st state where gay marriage has been on the ballot. The measure has been rejected by popular vote in every election in which it has been presented. In some cases, the people have voted to overturn the actions of their legislators or courts, and rejected attempts to legalize same-sex marriage without a vote, as in Maine and California.

Gay marriage is legal in five states, and two states recognize same-sex marriage, but do not perform it. In each of the states where it is legal, it has been enacted by an action of the courts or the legislature, without the people having a say.

 

So Maine—How Does Losing Your Freedom of Speech Affect Your Family?

freedom_speech_conflicts

No on 1 Campaign’s Hypocrisy on Parade

Don Mendell, a public school counselor, is in the position of losing his job because he exercised his free speech in choosing to stand for traditional marriage in Maine.  That was the story that came out Friday.

Now information is coming out on just WHO sent the complaint forcing him to defend his stance, his family and his job.  It was another teacher!  Another teacher whose husband ALSO took a stand— only his stance was AGAINST marriage.  That teacher has suffered no repercussions whatsoever for his stance.  The hypocrisy of this situation is exactly what those who support traditional marriage have been concerned about.

“All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.” –George Orwell 1945 Animal Farm

Why is there one set of rules for one side of the issue and another set of rules for the other?  Isn’t this the very thing that the No campaign has tried to deny all along?

Everyone is equal.  Everyone is free—-but not according to gay activists who hold one standard for those who agree with them and another for those who don’t.

They love to try to bring this down from a societal argument to a personal one.  “How will their marriage affect yours?”  Their point being that it won’t affect you so why should you care?  We’ve all heard it.  But that isn’t the real question.  The Mendell situation illustrates this more poignantly than any other because it’s happening RIGHT NOW in Maine.

So Mainers: How does losing your freedoms affect YOUR family??

See this from the Maine Campaign:

stand_for_marriage_maine

The latest example of how those in power in Maine schools will push homosexual marriage on students involves Don Mendell, a public school counselor who appeared in a Yes on Question 1 television ad. Mr. Mendell is a two-time recipient of the state Department of Education Commissioner’s Recognition Award and was nominated as Maine State Teacher of the Year. Despite a lifetime of service, a formal complaint was filed with the state seeking to have his license revoked. They say because Mr. Mendell spoke out in support of Question 1 he should not be allowed to counsel students anymore.
We learned just Friday that the person who filed the complaint against Mr. Mendell works for a school principal who happens to be the husband of the gay activist teacher who appeared in a No on Question 1 commercial!

If this sort of thing can happen before homosexual marriage is even legalized, can you imagine what will happen once they have the law on their side? The message is unmistakable: It’s fine to speak out if you support gay marriage, but if you speak out against it, they will punish you. It’s just the latest example that if Question 1 fails and homosexual marriage is legalized, those in power in Maine schools will push it on students just as they are trying to punish one of Maine’s best educators for supporting traditional marriage.

It is outrageous what is happening to Don Mendell. Voters need to hear about it, but we are out of money. We need to raise $25,000 right away so that we can buy more air time and inform voters about what is going on.

Will you please help us one more time?

Our polling shows the race to be very tight and there is evidence that undecided voters are starting to move our way. However, Question 1 could go either way depending on who actually votes. We’ve emptied our bank account to fund our get-out-the-vote campaign and pay for our advertising. If we can raise just $25,000 more in the next 48 hours, we can help make sure those remaining undecided voters hear about what is happening to this courageous school counselor who supports Question 1.

I know you have already sacrificed to help us, but please make a last-minute contribution right now so that we can make sure that every undecided voter knows about the latest consequence if Question 1 were to fail.

Thank you for everything you have done. Please don’t forget to vote Yes on Question 1 on Tuesday and call all your friends to do so as well. And if you have not signed up to be an Election Day volunteer, there is still time to do so! Please email doug@standformarriagemaine.com to sign up!

Freedom Conflicts with the Gay Agenda–Persecution in Maine Begins

freedom_conflicts

Freedom of Speech

Freedom of Conscience

Freedom to Believe

Homosexuals have always had the same exact rights as heterosexuals–the right to marry someone of the opposite sex.  They don’t want equality–they want special treatment–the right to discriminate against one gender or the other, in order to create a gender-specific union.

The story of Don Mendell illustrates exactly what happens when the gay agenda conflicts with freedom.  There is no tolerance for dissent.

See this from Maine:

STATEMENT FROM STAND FOR MARRIAGE MAINE
REGARDING THREAT TO YES ON 1 TV AD SPOKESMAN DON MENDELL

“I want to alert you to a disturbing development that confirms what we have been saying about the larger threat that redefining marriage poses to every Mainer.

“Don Mendell, one of our spokesmen who appeared in a television ad for Stand for Marriage Maine, has come under attack by our opponents.

“Don is a high school guidance counselor and licensed social worker. His appearance in the television ad prompted a complaint to the Maine Department of Professional and Financial Regulation – requesting that his license to practice social work in the state of Maine be stripped away – simply because of his personal opinion on marriage.

“It is ironic that those who claim tolerance as their highest value prove themselves to be so intolerant that they would go so far as to threaten a father’s career and put his family’s future at risk. This latest attack highlights the true agenda of those who demand that marriage be redefined.

“No one who opposes Question 1 is in similar danger from those who support marriage between one man and one woman.

“Our opponents want to shut us down. We have no interest in limiting free speech and threatening the right of conscience for those who disagree. So who’s really intolerant?

“This attack proves that a “YES” vote next Tuesday is about much more than protecting marriage. It is also about preserving free speech, religious liberty and right of conscience and about what is taught to children.

“This threat to Don and his family’s livelihood is proof that those who demand marriage be redefined seek to punish and silence those who disagree.

“It is our hope that the Department of Professional and Financial Regulation dismisses this complaint for what it is – nonsense. The Alliance Defense Fund – a legal alliance of attorneys committed to defending the right of people to freely live out their faith – is considering potential action on behalf of Don’s fundamental liberties.

“If the people of Maine vote Yes on Question 1 to protect marriage, we have hope that free speech and religious liberty will be respected. If marriage is not protected, Don will only be the first victim.

Maine Poll Tied on Question 1

Maine split on gay marriage question

From Public Policy Polling:  Raleigh, N.C. – Two weeks out from election day Maine voters are divided right down the middle when it comes to whether they will reject the state’s law allowing same sex couples to marry.

48% say they will vote to over turn the law while 48% say they will vote to keep it with only 4% of the electorate still undecided.

Opinion on the issue predictably breaks heavily along party lines. 74% of Republicans are planning to vote yes while only 25% of Democrats are. Independents may end up deciding which way it goes- presently 50% of them support rejecting the law with 44% in opposition. Older voters are strongest in their support of cutting off gay marriage. 54% are in support with 40% opposed. Senior citizens can often dominate the electorate in low turnout elections so the ultimate fate of this measure may lie in how many younger people get out to the polls and vote.

There is a strong gender gap on the issue with 53% of men but only 43% of women wanting to reject the law. It’s also interesting to note that while white voters oppose undoing the law by a thin 47-45 margin, nonwhite voters in the state support rejection by a 55-35 margin, creating the overall tie.

“The fate of Question 1 is going to be decided by which side does a better job of mobilizing their supporters to get out and vote,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling.

“Voters in the state know where they stand on the issue and now it’s just an issue of who shows up.”

PPP surveyed 1,130 likely voters from October 16th to 19th. The survey’s margin of error is +/-2.9%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.

Firefly Dove

See this from Stand for Marriage Maine:

National Public Radio interviewed Deb Allen, a Massachusetts sex education teacher, on the topic of how some teachers have responded to the teaching of sex education following the legalization of gay marriage in Massachusetts. The content is chilling and should be a wake up call to all those who believe our opponents lies that gay marriage won’t be taught in Maine simply because it is not expressly required in LD 1020.

The NPR reporter tells listeners that when Massachusetts legalized gay marriage, homosexual activists went right to work developing a, “gay friendly curriculum for kindergarten and up.” The reporter notes that Allen “says the debate around gay marriage is prompting kids to ask a lot more questions like what is gay sex which Allen answers thoroughly and explicitly with a chart.”  But the most alarming quote in our ad is from Ms. Allen herself:

“I know that, OK, this is legal now. If somebody wants to challenge me I say give me a break.” — Deb Allen, Teacher

The ad actually does not tell the full extent that this teacher instructs 8th graders on gay sex. The news story shockingly reveals that students learn in detail about various ways lesbians engage in sex.

WARNING: Graphic Contents

The full NPR story is available  here.

We entrust our young children to teachers every day that we send them to school. But because marriage has always been understood as being between a man and a woman, we have not had to worry about a trusted teacher teaching our sons and daughters about a new version of marriage and all that it entails. Yet all of that could change, as it has in other states, if we do not prevail on November 3rd.

Please help us get the word to Mainers that there are real consequences if Question 1 fails.  We have been working hard to explain to Mainers that there are significant, negative consequences to legalizing same-sex marriage that reach far beyond the boundaries of the two people who simply want to “marry”. We have laid bare the fact that legal scholars from across the country including those who support gay marriage predict a new flood of lawsuits against individuals, small businesses and religious organizations who may conscientiously object to providing their services to gay couples. We have shown proof that in other states where gay marriage is legal, it is taught to young children in school. We have made it abundantly clear that such instruction is, in fact, a part of public school curriculum. We have further established and the state Department of Education is on record agreeing with us that there is absolutely nothing in LD 1020 that prevents such instruction from taking place.

Time is of the essence to make sure that all Mainers know the very real, very serious, and very negative consequences to society should Question 1 fail on November 3rd. We are counting on your continued support.

Facebook’s Yellow Wave in Support of Marriage!

yellow_wave_2009

Stand for Marriage!  Go Yellow!

You may have noticed the impromptu “Yellow Wave” happening on Stand For Marriage Maine’s Facebook page.  Does the enthusiasm look familiar?  If you live in California it just might!  The “Go Yellow” movement has its roots in the California fight for Proposition 8.

As one avid poster explained:

In California, the opposition tried to paint marriage supporters as these fringe wacky people, so families that supported marriage participated in “waves” where they’d all come out on the street with their yellow yard signs and kids and wave to their neighbors to show their support and show voters who it was that really supported marriage.  Some of the waves were ten miles long! Ten miles of happy smiling families in yellow! Old people, young people, all kinds of people standing for marriage.

In Maine we’re so spread out I don’t know if we can really do waves like they did in California to put a personal face on the marriage effort, so I thought of doing it on facebook and twitter with yellow profile pics. With an online wave you can support marriage from anywhere, you don’t have to be in Maine to show solidarity for families.

Others chimed in:

“what a great idea! I like the whole “wave” concept, and with marriage being attacked in so many different states, it doesn’t really matter where we are. Raising awareness helps us all…”

“aha! that’s awesome!”

“You know those profile pics will show up changed all over facebook, like itty bitty yellow billboards. I like it!”

“How’s that for kickin’ it up a notch! Support Marriage this month! It doesn’t matter what state you’re in, go yellow!”

So not only can you sticker your car or post signs in your yard, but you can stand for marriage wherever you’re from through Facebook and Twitter!

Are you interested in participating?  Check out Maine’s Facebook page to find volunteers who will do the photoshop for you!  Go Yellow!

Yellow Coast! From Seal Beach to San Clemente—Turning the PCH Yellow!

happy_yellow_wavers

Proposition 8, which would define marriage in California as being between one man and one woman, has become the hottest topic in Orange County, even eclipsing the race for the White House for some voters.

Last Saturday, hundreds – according to organizer Michael Erickson, more than a thousand participants – rallied along Pacific Coast Highway from Seal Beach to San Clemente in support of Prop. 8.

See this video of the event, WOW.


Prop 8…..Sunshine on a Rainy Day

On Saturday, hundreds of Prop 8 Supporters lined a major boulevard in Sacramento. At the major intersections, the sound of horns from drivers supporting them was immense.

Neither wind, nor rain, nor opposition stops Prop 8!

The Mask is Off—Enlightening Conversation on the Gay Agenda in our Schools

From a post earlier this week:

In Maine, gay activists are trying to claim that homosexuality will not be taught in schools, but it already is in other states.  These activists target young children

“before they are old enough to have been convinced that there is another way of looking at life…”

Make no mistake.  Those pushing the gay agenda have put schools front and center in the battlefield over homosexual rights….

That’s where it started.  In responding to this post, there was an eye opening conversation that’s continued over the last few days concerning the gay agenda in schools…(you know, that gay agenda that doesn’t exist?)

Ross, a long time gay marriage advocate was asked:

“Ross, Do you dispute the content of the ad?”

After several dodges and refusing to answer, Ross let it slip:  “Seriously, cant wait for your side to lose within the next decade or so. It’s inevitable…”

When pressed to explain his comment and whether he disputed the charge that gay advocates wanted to teach homosexuality in schools, he continued: “No,I dont. In my state, homosexual marriage is taught in schools because it is legal in the state. Pretty simple, right? Not teaching something is not going to make the issue magically disappear. But I think its definitely extreme paranoia to think that the number one issue on the minds of gay rights activists is getting homosexuality taught in schools..in actuality, its the rights gained from gay marriage. Most people are hardly concerned or have any control over what a few rogue teachers will do once the law passes.”

There you have it.  “Do you dispute the contents of the ad?” The answer is no. He doesn’t. In fact he, like others in the gay activist movement, is actively working for homosexuality to be pushed in schools. It’s the vision he advocates on this blog and others. Total acceptance of homosexuality, bisexuality, transgenderism and so on down the list until every sexual deviancy is no longer considered deviant. He hopes that if they can continue their reach through the schools that the coming generation will believe their morality over the morality their parents taught, and that this version of morality will eventually supersede all others.

When I pointed this out, Ross responded:  “Why, again, should they (homosexuality, bisexuality, transgenderism and so on down the list) be seen as deviant? Any of those three are hardly deviant or malicious in nature.”

Why should homosexuality, transgenderism, bisexuality etc. be seen as deviant?  Ross thinks these behaviors are equal, the same as that beautiful union that happens between a man and a wife in marriage, the union that has the potential to light the spark of life, the creation of families and new generations.

Are these things deviant?  Deviant is from the same root as deviate. If you are deviant in your behavior it is because you deviate from normal behavior in some way. Homosexual, bisexual, transgender, questioning, queer, pedophilia, bestiality, fetishism…..the list goes on. The further you get from the nuclear family, the more deviant and repulsive the options get. Homosexuality is one of many ugly cousins that have nothing to do with marriage, children and families.  No amount of rhetoric can change that.

Is it inevitable that these deviant activities will someday be seen as normal? No way. That is why those promoting the gay agenda have to stoop to lies, false equalities, trick sophistry and base child indoctrination to win points. Have you ever wondered why courts and rogue legislatures IMPOSE same sex marriage? People don’t choose it.

If Ross were to be put on television and radio to spout his views before the people of Maine and other states where gay marriage is being pushed, their movement would be crushed in the stampeding political backlash of concerned parents, teachers and voters.

Over exposure to the true nature of homosexuality turns people off to the sophistry. Reality can’t be hidden forever.   Why? Because the more ground gay activists win, the bolder they become and the carefully crafted mask of normality drops.

Listen to Ross and his fellow gay activists.  The mask is off.

Questions & Answers About Question 1

What is Question 1?

A People’s Veto is a simple and straightforward voter-initiated measure that gives voters the power to decide if they accept or reject an act of the legislature. More than 100,000 Mainers signed the petition to place this People’s Veto on the November ballot as Question 1 to repeal the recent same-sex marriage proposal (LD 1020) passed by Maine’s legislature.

Passage of the Question 1 will restore the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman by asking the citizens of Maine, “Do you want to reject the new law that lets same-sex couples marry and allows individuals and religious groups to refuse to perform these marriages?”

Marriage is a pillar of society and should be protected from distortion by politicians and homosexual marriage activists who want to redefine it to suit their objectives.

Question 1 will preserve the centuries-old definition of marriage.

What does a Yes Vote Mean?

Voting Yes on Question 1 does several important things:

  • It restores the definition of marriage to what Maine Law has always been and human history has understood marriage to be: between a man and a woman
  • It maintains the rights and benefits of Maine same-sex couples who are covered by our domestic partners law. A YES vote does not take anything away from homosexual couples, but protects traditional marriage.
  • It protects our children from being taught in public schools that “same-sex marriage” is the same as traditional marriage as happens in Massachusetts, where children as young as the second grade are being taught that they can grow up to marry either a boy or a girl, and either option is the same, while parents cannot opt their children out of such “instruction.”
  • And, a Yes vote on Question 1 puts the power in the hands of the voters, not politicians!

What does a NO Vote Mean?

If Question 1 is defeated, LD 1020 will take effect and the sanctity of marriage will be destroyed. Maine law will no longer promote monogamous marriages and the interests of children. Marriage’s powerful influence on the betterment of society will be lost.

The defeat of the Question 1 would result in the very meaning of marriage being transformed into nothing more than a contractual relationship between adults.

No longer will the interests of children and families even be a consideration.

Defeat of Question 1 will mean that homosexual marriage activists will have been able to redefine marriage for all of society, even for those people who have deep objections to it.

The marriage between a man and a woman has been at the heart of society since the beginning of time.

It promotes the ideal opportunity for children to be raised by a mother and father in a family held together by the legal, communal and spiritual bonds of marriage.

And while divorce and death too frequently disrupt the ideal, as a society we should put the best interests of children first, and that is traditional marriage.

Voting No on Question 1 would destroy marriage as we know it and cause profound harm to society.
Will Question 1 take away any rights for gay and lesbian domestic partners?
No.

Question 1 doesn’t take away any rights or benefits from gay or lesbian partners who are covered by Maine’s domestic partners law.

Maine law guarantees gay couples many of the rights offered to heterosexual couples.

Passage of Question 1 will not change that.

Federal law controls other rights and changing the definition of marriage in Maine similarly won’t change that.
If Question 1 does not pass, will my children be forced to learn about homosexual marriage at school?
Yes.

Without Question 1, teachers will be required to teach young children that there is no difference between homosexual marriage and traditional marriage and parents will lose control over what their kids learn in school about marriage and sexual orientation.

This is not a hypothesis.

It has already happened.

In states like Massachusetts where same-sex marriage has been legalized.

Children as young as second graders are taught that there is no difference between marriage and same-sex “marriages.”

Worse, parents who do not want their children exposed to this homosexual marriage instruction have been denied an opportunity to opt their children out. (See Parker vs. Hurley)
Why was a People’s Veto needed? Don’t we already have a law clarifying the definition of marriage?
“An Act to Promote Marriage Equality and Affirm Religious Freedom” was passed by the Legislature and signed by the governor on May 6, and is scheduled to take effect 90 days after the adjournment of the Legislature in mid-June. Without a People’s Veto, Mainers will be denied the right that voters in 30 other states have already exercised, which is to decide this critically important question for ourselves. It is wrong for politicians and homosexual marriage activists to redefine marriage for all of society without giving Maine voters an opportunity to have their say.

Who supports this initiative?

A wide range of national, state and local pro-family organizations, churches and individuals have formed a broad-based coalition to enact a People’s Veto, which more than 100,000 Mainers supported to qualify for the November ballot..

People of a variety of different faiths stand united in preserving the definition of marriage in Maine.

To view a list of supporters, visit http://www.standformarriagemaine.com
What will happen to the existing same-sex partnership laws if Question 1 passes?

Nothing.

All laws on the books regarding same-sex couples will remain intact.

Gays and lesbians in a committed relationship will continue to enjoy all the legal rights and benefits that married couples enjoy, under existing Maine law. Question 1 does not affect those rights and benefits.
Where can I find more information about Question 1 or get involved in the campaign?

You can visit the People’s Veto site at http://www.standformarriagemaine.com or send an email at info@standformarriagemaine.com.

There are a number of ways to get involved with the campaign, including volunteering, donating and helping to spread the word about the importance of voting YES on Question 1.
