If They Want To Act Like A PAC, Treat Them Like One
Had a good conversation with some similarly situated folks at a Halloween party last night. Long and the short of it was a consensus that the battle over marriage equality won’t be ending Tuesday. If the Mormons lose, they’ll just come back in two years with more money. If the initiative passes, it just means years and years of litigation and uncertainty. Significant venting, even before the drinks kicked in, over the softness and group-hugginess of the No on Proposition 8 commercials that actually make it to the airwaves. Maybe it’s what the so-called marketing experts think is needed, but I think a lot of gays in the streets are getting really tired of being nice and polite while being called second-class citizens. Like their earlier video on marital “equipment checks“, Courage Campaign’s new video cuts to the chase about the 900-pound gorilla in the room in California’s battle over Proposition 8.
If they can do this to California, who will be next? You know they won’t stop here.
