Be it Enacted by the People of the State of Colorado: Article 2, of the Colorado Constitution is amended by the addition of Sec. 30, which shall state as follows: NO PROTECTED STATUS BASED ON HOMOSEXUAL, LESBIAN OR BISEXUAL ORIENTATION. Neither the State of Colorado, through any of its branches or departments, nor any of its agencies, political subdivisions, municipalities or school districts, shall enact, adopt or enforce any statute, regulation, ordinance or policy whereby homosexual, lesbian, or bisexual orientation, conduct, practices or relationships shall constitute or otherwise be the basis of, or entitle any person or class of persons to have or claim any minority status, quota preferences, protected status or claim of discrimination. This Section of the Constitution shall be in all respects self-executing. ******* Note that most of it seems relatively innocuous - I don't know of anyone who is advocating special rights or quotas. The kicker is in the last clause of the next to last sentence - OR ANY CLAIM OF DISCRIMINATION. Unfortunately CFV convinced people that they were voting against "special rights", and that a Yes vote was a vote for equal rights (yes, that's exactly what they said in some of their literature).
