Gay Marriage Law Has No Impact on Public School Curricula, AG Concludes

Gay Marriage Law Has No Impact on Public School Curricula, AG Concludes:
"Maine Attorney General Janet Mills says the state's gay marriage law enacted by the Legislature last spring has no impact on public school teaching. Mills' review came at the request of education officials, after same-sex marriage opponents claimed that the law would result in children being taught about gay marriage in public schools.

Maine Attorney General Janet Mills researched Maine's gay marriage law and then compared it with similar legislation in Massachusetts. Then she asked her staff to review her findings just to see if there was any way that either law could require public school students to be instructed on same sex marriage.

'Our answer frankly is 'no,' there is no impact on the curricula of Maine's public schools,' Mills says."

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
