Charles LiMandri: get your facts right

October 19, 2008 - 1:48 pm

In the Sunday U-T “Dialog” section, under the headline “Consequences of gay marriage already here,” San Diego attorney Charles LiMandri wrote this:

Just over a week ago, Californians were treated to a dramatic photo of perplexed youngsters delivered to San Francisco’s City Hall on a school field trip to see their first-grade teacher married to her lesbian partner. The faces of the children, with their trip slips hanging around their necks, created an image for the ages – and proof for parents that gay political advocates haven’t just set their sights on marriage, but on our schools as well.

Oh, really, Chuck? Cause I’m looking at the photos from that field trip and the kids are thrilled. The photo you’re referring to shows two of the kids with their hands dug into bags of rose petals, waiting for the couple to emerge from City Hall. The looks on their faces are of anticipation, not confusion. Nice of you—and the Yes on 8 clan that sent out a press release slamming the event—to take what was otherwise a special moment for the first graders and use it for your own agenda. From the San Francisco Chronicle:

The 18 Creative Arts Charter School students took a Muni bus and walked a block at noon to toss rose petals and blow bubbles on their just-married teacher Erin Carder and her wife Kerri McCoy, giggling and squealing as they mobbed their teacher with hugs.

Parents gave permission for their kids to be there; only two of the class of 20 didn’t attend. Maybe you Yes-on-8′ers should take a lesson from this kid. Anyone who’s planning to marry should take a lesson:

Marriage, 6-year-old Nolan Alexander said Friday, is “people falling in love.” It means, he added, “You stay with someone the rest of your life.”

    I’m a CHRISTIAN and I’m voting NO on 8.

    Why?

    Because it seems that all the funding has come from false Christian groups like ROMAN CATHOLICS and “MORMONS” both of whom are idolaters (worshiping Men, Mary, beads, little statues of saints, etc).

    IDOLATRY is a worse sin. Voting yes on 8 supports idolatry.

    This seems to be full of conveniently invented “facts”:

    Charles gives this quote by Connecticut Governor, Janet Lee: “There is no question that the court’s decision does not express the will of the people”.

    The governor of Connecticut is not Janet Lee, but M. Jodi Rell. No state in the U.S. has a governor named Janet Lee.

    So I’d have to guess that the quote is just as imaginary as the governor herself.

    Everything about Prop. 8 is imaginary…if it makes it I’m guessing it will be fought over in the courts and declaired unconstitutional, it “protects” no one’s marriage, and (if it does survive if it is passed) it will curtail a source of marriage-license revenue for the state and the various businesses that are contracted to do weddings.

    Gay marriage advocates have gone out of their way to say all of this has nothing to do with schools. The photo in question proves otherwise. The Gay Agenda has been trying (and largely succeeding) to pry its way into the schools for ages. This photo speaks volumes. Yes on 8. Stop experimenting with our children.

    Yes, the gay agenda is going to infiltrate our schools. Every child will be given a pink feather boa and a complete compilation of Barbara Striesand’s Greatest Hits. Watch out, Joaquin. They’re after your babies!!!
