This ain't a scene, it's an equality race

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 8-103Maybe it was Rosh Hashanah or maybe it was something else, but for some reason we completely missed the news this week that the band Fall Out Boy has given $50k to fight the cruel, discriminatory, intellectually bankrupt, un-American measure known as Proposition 8:

Fall Out Boy gives $50,000! [CA Ripple Effect]

So you heard 'em, kids -- When it's fall out, boy is it a good time of the year to go to the polls and reject anti-gay measures! And if you don't, Pete Wentz is gonna make you watch his wife's cringe-worthy "SNL" screwup on a continuous loop. ::shudder::

and this from Corvino! Want a good investment strategy this month?? Invest in your future..invest to win in all 3 amendment states:

What they need, very badly, is money. Understandably, the California fight has received the most attention and the most support. But Arizona is important. The amendment’s failure would be a powerful statement that when voters reject homophobia, they really mean it. Its passage, on the other hand, could encourage right-wing opponents in other states to keep trying even after losing ballot battles.

We can win all three battles if we fund them. That’s why I’m urging you to visit the campaign websites opposing these initiatives—today—and to give as you are able.

And don’t just visit their websites. If the prospect of legal protection for our relationships fails to inspire you to send money, try visiting our opponents’ campaign websites.

There you will find pretty pictures of heterosexual couples and families, along with the insidious message that we gays harm them. That we weaken their families. That we threaten their children.

THAT MESSAGE IS POISONOUS, AND IT HURTS ALL OF US IN EVERY STATE..(caps mine,Lorion) . If you care about justice for gays and lesbians, invest in stopping these amendments.

For more information, check the campaign websites. Note that Florida and Arizona each have two groups working in tandem to defeat the amendment.

California:
No: http://noonprop8.com/home
Yes: http://www.protectmarriage.com/

Florida:
No: http://www.sayno2.com/
No: http://www.votenoon2.com/
Yes: http://yes2marriage.org/

Arizona:
No: http://www.votenoprop102.com/web/index.php
No: http://www.aztogether.org/
Yes: http://yesformarriage.com/

Well now I don't feel as silly for buying their last 2 albums.

Bet this will again piss off that pig of a mother who called FOB's concert a "liberal homosexual rally"; she's probably been breathing in a paper bag for hours already.
