New York Marriage Equality: Astroturfing – Courtesy of the Same Ten (Mormon) People

Posted on 18 May 2009 by Chino Blanco

In her report on the New York “pro-marriage” rally, Mormon blogger (and Digital Network Army director) Angela Rockwood (aka Beetle Blogger) suggests that if you are a New Yorker, you’ll want to know about these sites:

New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms

New Yorkers Family Research Foundation

For once, I agree with Angela: If you’re a New Yorker, please take her advice and check out both sites.

Chino’s Preface: Fred Karger, of Californians Against Hate fame, recently marked the launch of his new Mormongate.com site with the publication of several never-before-seen internal LDS documents regarding a 1990′s contest in Hawaii over the issue of marriage equality.

DailyKos brought this survey about public opinion about Prop 8 since the election to my attention, and it holds what could be good news.  It found that 8% of the the people who voted for Prop 8 have changed their minds since the election.  Even better, 13% of Blacks who voted for Prop 8 have changed their mind.

Enough with the Finger Pointing at Ourselves

Posted on 24 November 2008 by admin

Questioning or being skeptical of our campaign over protesting the opposition and the fact that our rights were taken away is the argument that our opposition makes.  And some in the gay community are trying to say the same thing.

Doing so — while complaining that our anger is misdirected — suggests that putting this on the ballot was OK. We have to make people aware of the injustice that was done and not just retreat within the walls of our community for a round of finger pointing. The quality of our campaign is somewhat irrelevant considering that in a fair world we would not have needed a campaign at all.

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.
