A newly-created, anti-LGBT rights super PAC in Maine is asking residents to sign a “truth pledge” against “sodomy based marriage,” which they say is being advanced by “demonic forces.”
Same sex marriage opponents Paul Madore and Mike Heath formed the No Special Rights PAC and began distributing their pledge at the University of Maine at the same time the school was kicking off its Pride Week.
Think Progress obtained a copy of the pledge that calls on signers to “vote NO on Sodomy Based Marriage in November.”
Besides finding ten people to contribute $50 each, those signing the pledge also promise to:
Use the term “Sodomy Based Marriage” and avoid the deceptive terms “same sex or gay marriage.”
Inform my friends and neighbors that the term “same sex marriage” contains two contradictory terms, and is therefore, illogical, false, and absurd.
Marriage is a Covenant that is entered into between two people and is based on a difference in gender; and there can be no moral or legal right to a practice which defies logic, common sense, and the Natural Law itself.
Reaffirm the Christian Church’s teaching that a child must never be denied the right to have both a mother and a father. Oppose the hellish doctrine that parents of the same sex make better parents than parents of the opposite sex, an evil doctrine which is now being advanced by the homosexual rights movement.
Pray that God will deliver our State and Country from this attack by demonic forces, and that marriage between man and woman will be restored to its rightful place of honor, to the glory of Almighty God.
At a press conference, Madore told reporters that homosexuality was a “culture of death” because it spreads AIDS and “doesn’t bring forth life.”
A press advisory from the No Special Rights PAC explained that the group also opposed the University of Maine’s Pride Week because students and faculty were encouraged “to be proud of sexual deviance.”
“It’s time to get serious with society on the issue of homosexuality and the practical effects that are very harmful to society that this distorted and perverted lifestyle will have. It’s time to take the gloves off,” Madore said. “Good people just keep moving the line back regarding homosexuality. But not anymore.”
A recent survey from the Maine People’s Resource Center found that 58 percent of likely voters supported legalizing same sex marriage in November.
“The only reason why the number of supporters for same sex ‘marriage’ may be increasing is because people are sick and tired,” Madore argued. ” Homosexuals have made people sick and tired. Homosexuals have absolutely nothing good to contribute to family life, which is what marriage is all about. A sterile union (between same sex couples) is never in need of marriage, and has nothing good to contribute to marriage or family life – absolutely nothing.”
