Last month we pointed to the new campaign fact-check effort by Washington United for Marriage, called ‘Marriage Fact Check’, that serves as an information source to rebut the claims coming from the anti-gay side of the fight to pass marriage equality in the state.
On September 25, a televised debate took place on R74, Washington state’s marriage equality initiative. Marriage Fact Check has written its report on the issues discussed. Unsurprisingly, the pro-”traditional marriage” side of the debate brought out the usual complaints about marriage equality. They said same-sex parents are worse. They said domestic partnerships are the same as marriage. They said business owners and churches will be legally affected by marriage equality.
