"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

California "No on 8" campaign needs your help!

The forces of oppression are loading their unholy war chest with massive contributions from out-of-state bigots (including massive donations from a certain Church in Salt Lake City). If you believe, as I do, that the issue of LGBT rights is the civil rights battle of our generation, then please go to the "No and 8" website and contribute what you can.
Proponents of Prop 8 are distorting the facts. Prop 8 seeks to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry.

Prop 8 isn't about schools, religion, children, doctors or courts. Prop 8 is about eliminating a fundamental right to marry for gays and lesbian couples, some of whom have been together for years. They are our friends, our neighbors, our co-workers and our family members. State law should not single out anyone to be treated differently under the law. We should not vote to eliminate their fundamental rights.

Regardless of how you feel about marriage, we should not eliminate fundamental rights for ANY Californians.

Get the real facts
