Sex-obsessed pervs who blackmail - updated

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

Leaders of the campaign to outlaw same-sex marriage in California are warning businesses that have given money to the state's largest gay rights group they will be publicly identified as opponents of traditional unions unless they contribute to the gay marriage ban, too., the umbrella group behind a ballot initiative that would overturn the California Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage, sent a certified letter this week asking companies to withdraw their support of Equality California, a nonprofit organization that is helping lead the campaign against Proposition 8.

"Make a donation of a like amount to which will help us correct this error," reads the letter. "Were you to elect not to donate comparably, it would be a clear indication that you are in opposition to traditional marriage. ... The names of any companies and organizations that choose not to donate in like manner to but have given to Equality California will be published."

The letter was signed by four members of the group's executive committee: campaign chairman Ron Prentice; Edward Dolejsi, executive director of the California Catholic Conference; Mark Jansson, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; and Andrew Pugno, the lawyer for A donation form was attached. The letter did not say where the names would be published.

What total and utter assholes. Why don't we publish their names and declare that they are haters and bigots if they don't help defeat Prop 8? How childish the whole thing is.

Creeps, every one of them. And, IMHO, pervs of the highest order.

And violators of the commandment against bearing false witness. Supporting everyone's right to marry does not subvert "traditional" marriages. It only widens the circle of commitment, celebration, and recognition. That circle is not limited. It can grow.

[Now that my godson knows how to find this blog I am not going to use the language I very much want to use right now.]

As an afterthought, I just voted for a Mormon - Tom Udall for US Senator from New Mexico - and I did so enthusiastically, but my opinion of the Mormon Church right now has them in the pit with terrorists (which they are in this campaign) and lower than Wall Street brokers. Just saying. Keep your effing theocracy out of other people's civil rights.

Jesus wept.

This from John Aravosis -
The Mormon Church has given $8.4 million to the anti-gay proposition in California - the one that would revoke the already-existing marriages of gay couples, instantly turning their children into bastards. And in fact, other estimates show the Mormons giving as much as $17.67 million to the California gay-bashing effort - a full 77% of the homophobes' budget.
And where do Mormons get off upholding traditional marriage? Or persecuting people who are differnt? I know they know their own history. Or do we need to remind them?
