In vintage Frank Schubert form, Minnesota for Marriage — the paradoxically-named group that’s working hard to add a marriage discrimination amendment to the Minnesota constitution — released an ad today that attempts to scare Minnesotans into voting for the amendment by ominously (and falsely) warning that marriage equality harms children because “same-sex marriage could be taught in local schools.” Similar shamelessly fear-mongering ads, released en masse at the last minute, contributed greatly to the 2008 passage of Proposition 8 in California.

Lets hope that this year, the outcome in Minnesota will be different.
