Misleading Anti-Gay Ads In Maine

Two new anti-gay ads just started running in Maine this week. And as usual, they’re full of misleading, hurtful statements.

AFER, the sole sponsor of the federal challenge to California’s Prop. 8, corrects the claims in these commercials by using the testimony from the 2010 Prop 8 trial. That case was like a marriage equality “truth commission” that, for the first time, examined our opponents’ claims in a federal court of law.
