New Yorker: Swamp of Bigotry Grows Toxic with Evaporation

Posted on 24 November 2008 by admin

Hendrik Hertzberg writes for The New Yorker:

Like a polluted swamp, anti-gay bigotry is likely to get thicker and more toxic as it dries up. Viciousness meets viciousness.

I think this is a great way to express how I’ve been feeling as people complain that we are not doing anything to win over hearts with our protests.  Most people who can be reasoned with are already on our side.  It is time for people to get off the fence, and I think that is being accomplished with our demands for equality since the election. The debate now needs to framed without middle ground: between freedom and equality or bigotry and oppression.

Targeting Mormons Unfair?

Equality California estimates that Mormons donated as much as $20 million to Prop. 8, while the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal group, gave $1.25 million to the effort and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, $200,000.
