The “don’t show me that” state

Missouri became the first state to legalize descrimination in its constitution by adding the phrase, “To be valid and recognized in this state, a marriage shall exist only between a man and a woman,” effectively barring the right to wed to same-sex couples. The amendment was passed by 70% of the voters.
Opponents tried to argue that the amendment was redundant and that a No vote would protect the constitution from tampering. Supporters of the amendment, with less than $20,000 to work with, distributed fliers in church bulletins, set up “Protect Marriage Chain” picket lines on busy street corners and posted thousands of yard signs to get their point accross.
Apparently, it worked.
