Don't be fooled. Amendment bans civil unions

WKOW 27 in Madison is reporting that canvassers for the "Vote Yes For Marriage" campaign have been telling residents that the amendment on the November 7th ballot doesn't address civil unions.

On the contrary, the amendment is pretty clear that it does, and the Vote Yes campaign pointed out that its own website agrees with that claim. The article mentions that Vote Yes doesn't train volunteers on how to approach voters. Maybe they should start if they want to have an honest debate based on facts rather than confusion.

To review, here's the language of the amendment:

"Only a marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state. A legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall not be valid or recognized in this state."
