Signed Andy Pugno, Ron Prentice, et al.
With all of the recent talk about how the poor Prop 8 proponents are under supposed threat of intimidation and harassment, we'd just like to submit Exhibit H (for '"How dare you all be so hypocritical?") back into the court of public opinion:
Am I the only one who read that yes I'll help donation thing and was sorely tempted to print it out, check off other, write "Jack Shit" in the space provided, fill out the rest of the paperwork (crossing things out with snide comments where appropriate ala the bottom of the page)... then proceed to shit in a box and UPS it to them with the letter attached?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that a textbook example of extortion? Either give us money or we'll make sure you lose business...yeah. That these same men are involved in the Prop 8 trial is interesting. I'm hoping Olson & Boies introduce this little hand grenade into evidence soon.

Isn't this extortion??!!

Nope. It's "good" "loving" christianity.

A time-proven, centuries-old, ultra-Catholic method of securing support for Church politics. Of course, the other name for it is "church building." Now you know how Italy's churches came to be richly gilded and so richly endowed. As a daughter of the Catholic Church, it's absolutely no wonder that Yes-On-8 uses Mafioso tactics.

Ugh. I've never seen anything so detestable in all my life. It's their right to send something like that I guess, I mean, their wording is much more ominous but the message is similar to letter writing campaigns I've been asked to participate in towards supporters of Prop 8. But that they would say that it's only fair for Prop 8 supporters to know, while at the same time attempting to block the reverse. What ridiculous hypocrisy.

"ProtectMarriage.com" is a lame name for an advocacy organization... the ".com" TLD suffix implies that it's a commercial entity, not a nonprofit organization.

I want to cross post this and there seems to be a problem for me to get the text of the letter to link or load in any system. What can I do to make sure this gets out into the web?
