When I install postgis using the mac ox binary installing or create the template_postgis manually using the instructions provided on the Geo Django docs the template_postgis DB is created but it contains no functions. When I execute the SQL to create template_postgis I get a ton of errors saying that types already exist.

It turns out that the template_postgis had errors during installation. I solved this by uninstalling everything. Installing the Posgresql binary, installing the postgis binary, patching Django, and everything worked fine this time.
