Over at BMG, I've been writing dozens of comments and my frustration seems to find no end. David has decided to bump two diaries on why the State House needs to vote on gay marriage at the next ConCon. I reposted a recent blog from this site as a response to David's front paging. Then David felt the need to write a whole blog on why people like me are apparently wrong.
Add to that mix more than one people who are interested in the Health Care amendment arguing we need to vote on the Marriage Equality ban because the Health Care needs a vote - and then going on and on about one thing even when it has nothing to do with the other.
Divisions by issue-oriented groups mired our party in defeat after defeat after defeat over the last 40 years. Pro-Choice groups were fighting with environmental groups. Democratically elected candidates were blaming the Democratic Party for all our country's wrongs.
It's a recipe for disaster. If people care about progressive issues and civil rights, they need to show a united front or be prepared for their cause to lose too. By attacking each other we all will lose. Attack the efforts of the courageous Congressmen and women protecting marriage equality at your peril - it will come back to bite us all on issues that effect far more people, from Clean Elections to the Health Care amendment.
Unite or lose.
