MoveOn.org Already Working To Overturn California Marriage Amendment, Staging Rallies In Virginia TomorrowNov 14, 2008
Earlier this week we posted a letter from Planned Parenthood (click here) so you could read for yourself the delightfulness it takes in its extremist positions. Today, we came across a blast e-mail from another notoriously radical, big money, Angry Left organization — MoveOn.org — announcing to its millions of members plans to overturn the hard-fought and legally won Marriage Amendment in California ("Prop 8") and in every state that has passed one, including Virginia (protests are scheduled in seven Virginia cities tomorrow. Click here).
This is what we are up against in the culture war (click here for one way to fight back). By the way, in MoveOn's e-mail, posted below, notice the words "agents of intolerance" and "fear-mongering" to describe values voters, while MoveOn admits it is "angry" and that its supporters "took to the streets" after the Marriage Amendment passed. Boy, did they ever: View, if you haven't, the KPSP television report from Palm Springs, California, where a true mob of leftists and homosexual activitists surrounded and threatened an elderly lady who supported the Marriage Amendment (click here). The MoveOn.org e-mail is printed below verbatim and in its entirety.
E-Mail From Moveon.org To Its Members Regarding Actions To Repeal California's Recently Passed Marriage Amendment
subject line: "Overturn Prop 8"
Dear MoveOn member,
Along with our tremendous excitement over Barack Obama's victory, a lot of us are sad and angry about a different election result-the passage of California Proposition 8, which reversed marriage equality and wrote discrimination into the California Constitution.
Many people worked hard to defeat this measure-including MoveOn members, who contributed over $300,000 to defeat it. But agents of intolerance used fear-mongering to eke out a win.
After the election, people across California immediately took to the streets, vowing to put the state on the right side of history by overturning Prop 8.
Now folks everywhere are coming together to add their voices. Tomorrow (Saturday) there will be rallies in support of marriage equality in every single state. If you want to attend an event in your state, go to this page and click on your state name — you'll see the location of any rallies planned:
These rallies will send a strong signal that depriving people of rights is no longer acceptable in America — and it will also be a first step in ongoing activism across the nation.
There's one other thing you can do to support the fight for marriage equality.
The Courage Campaign (which does MoveOn-style organizing in California) is working with other groups on a two-year grassroots plan to overturn Prop 8 in the 2010 election. The first step is for folks to speak out together with one voice right away by signing a pledge to help overturn Prop 8.
Over 100,000 people have already signed the pledge-and thousands more are signing every day. Even non-Californians are signing the pledge in solidarity. If you'd like to sign, click here:
Thanks for all you do.
