Are the opponents of same-sex marriage being accurate?

Posted Sept. 15, 2009, at 9:24 a.m.

In their campaign to repeal Maine’s same-sex marriage law, a coalition of groups distributing brochures is arguing that if the law stands, public schools will have to teach about gay marriage. Supporters of the law say this is not true, that the law does not dictate

anything for schools. Supporters of the law also say that schools are free to use or reject any sex education curriculum. Are the repeal proponents fighting fair? Are they deliberately distorting the facts? Or are they correct in a general sense, in that schools will have to teach children about same-sex marriages because they are legal?
