A few things we can do now

Hi all,

I have the greatest Gentle Readers of any blogger. You all have said "what can I do?"

I have been wrestling with this question, since there has been some debate in the "No on 8" community as to the best course of action. E.g. some are saying "lay off the attack on the Mormons."

While I agree it would be unwise to kill, maim or torture any Mormons physically, that does not mean we have to be quiet about what they and their Evangelical brethren have done to us.

Many are calling for a re-evaluation of their tax-exempt status. They may have the right to their political opinion, but we as taxpayers most certainly do not have to subsidize their illegal campaign of hatred.

Since they have so many bazillions of dollars, we should make them pay their fair share of taxes. Wouldn't that be a nice boost to the economy, and so badly needed at this time?

To see what to do, please visit this post at Katie Schwartz's blog to sign the petition (and a few other helpful items.) It is also possible to donate to the "No on 8" campaign through the link on her site as well.

Love and freedom to marry to you all, Gentle Readers.

It's hard to believe that shit passed. Good for you standing out there with your sign.

There is a website ( that keeps up-to-date info on companies that have Mormons in board level positions, which is how I know about the Hollywood video thing. I would caution, however, that active boycotting will not necessarily help the "No on 8" cause, as there is no guarantee that the Mormon on the board contributed to the bigotry in the election, and as you point out, the fight is with bigots, not the faith (no matter how kooky it is.)

I'm with you. Mormons have a lot of nerve pleading with us for civility.

I think about you and George a lot as we all are waiting to see how this plays out, especially the status of those already married.
