JSOnline Mythbusters: The "NO" Crowd Fibs...

The JSOnline helps out a bit by demonstrating that the Homosexual Collective's arguments are simply a bunch of crap.

The marriage amendment will be presented as Question 1:

"Marriage. Shall section 13 of article XIII of the constitution be created to provide that only a marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state and that a legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall not be valid or recognized in this state?"

"Keg" Lift-Und-Schlepp-Em weighed in:

"Under present Wisconsin law, only a marriage between a husband and a wife is recognized as valid in this state. A husband is commonly defined as a man who is married to a woman, and a wife is commonly defined as a woman who is married to a man,"

Of course, Amendments trump laws, and SCOWI doesn't have much use for law, precedent, or definitions, if they stand in the way of the Hive's New Social Constructs...

Some noise is made about Ohio, where "domestic violence" is legal(?)--NOT. It's still in the courts. Beyond that, and FAR more significant:

Ohio's amendment language differs from what's on the ballot in Wisconsin.

Try filing Assault and Battery charges in the meantime.

In Kentucky (!!) same-sex couples were given benefits:

Kentucky, which also passed a marriage amendment in 2004. It used the same language that's up for a vote in Wisconsin. The amendment, so far, has not prevented the University of Louisville from approving health benefits for domestic partners, including same-sex partners. And the University of Kentucky is considering offering a similar package.

Boy, o boy--it sure looks menacing, eh?

In Michigan:

a major case involving 21 same-sex couples who asked the courts to rule that the state's marriage amendment doesn't bar governments and universities from offering domestic partner benefits to same-sex couples. The couples won at the trial level and the case is on appeal.

Deborah Labelle, an attorney who represents the couples, said that for now, "the status quo is maintained. All benefits that existed previously are continuing."

Yah. Another place where same-sexers are now living in cardboard boxes and using cornstalks as splints, and dandelion-leaves as Band-Aids...
