  •  In Maine, this thing is called the People's Veto (0+ / 0-)

    ...   The People's Veto #1  

    Question 1: People's Veto
    An Act To End Discrimination in Civil Marriage and Affirm Religious Freedom
    "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?"

    http://www.maine.gov/...

    And that, IMO,  is how you need to start refering  to it because the language of the bill would let a minority of out of state Republican PR shysters veto your state's legislature.

    I fixed your tags, Prop 8 was the CA ballot initiative with the same goal, which is letting Republicans use churches to do tax exempt and money laundering of unusually large campaign donations-  while dragging Repubs to the polls to destroy other's civil rights.

      •  You're welcome, the Veto 1 people use such mis- (0+ / 0-)

        ... leading advertising it's disgusting.  They take a private Christian school teacher and use her in an ad to say that she's being forced to teach this against her will which violates her faith-  she is a liar, pure and simple, because she is not a PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER and they are not "teaching" marriage in schools anyway!  

        I read one of her Teabagger speeches she performed, and it's the exact same phrasing my bigoted republican congressperson used during his campaign, because it's coming out of the think tank, the Claremont Institute.

        Which is funded by a real estate banker who also works on creating a schism in the Episcopal Church.

        People need to wake up.
