While Team Homophobia has the backing of the deep pocketed Mormon church, along with their many eager volunteers, the natural money raisers for the glbt community in this situation just aren't stepping up. Brad Pitt and several celebrities have contributed big dollars, but by and large the LA and Silicon Valley elite just haven't stepped up.
I can't think of anything more dangerous to the glbt movement than losing this November battle. If we lose in California, not only will it break the hearts of millions, but it could entirely stall the entire movement and put the fear into politicians in places like New York, preventing the expansion of our equal rights where we could win in the legislative arena for the first time.
Please donate to defeat Prop 8 in California and forward this blog to all your friends. I know the economy is bad right now and many of us have emptied our wallets for Obama, but if Prop 8 passes in California, its national implications will be disastrous. Even $25 will go a long way.
