More fun with Yes on 36

Now on to the "serious" arguments in favor of Measure 36.

Sure, there's the just plain funny arguments, such as this one from House Majority Leader Wayne Scott:
The ACLU Will Demand More

If measure 36 fails, there will be mass confusion over the definition of marriage in Oregon. The ACLU will surely force costly litigation on the state and school districts demanding that same sex marriage become a normal component of school curriculums. Teachers will be forced to teach sex education to middle school children based on the new interpretation of marriage in Oregon.
But the best part is how the same Wayne Scott sums up his argument (emphasis added):
It is important to affirm what we all thought was already in the Oregon Constitution—marriage is a sacred covenant between one man and one man
Typo? Or Freudian slip?
