This is some mass email from the people at Yes on Hate, it makes me feel
a bit better. Here's hoping they don't raise that scrilla.
The institution of marriage is in cardiac arrest in California and I am
pleading with you to help save it. Please set aside what you are doing
for a minute and pay close attention to what is happening with
Proposition 8. Marriage as we know it is in a life or death moment.
Gay activists held a fundraiser on Tuesday night at billionaire liberal
Ron Burkle's mansion in Beverly Hills where they raised an astonishing
$3.9 million. Even as guests were being entertained by Barbra Streisand,
Melissa Etheridge and Mary J. Blige, No on 8 operatives were busy
launching a sneak attack on the institution of marriage. They began
dumping $3 million into television commercials this week alone. That is
on top of the nearly $4 million in air time they already had purchased
for this week, meaning they are spending an unbelievable $7 million on
air time this week alone!
In the middle of the night last night, they began airing a new
commercial featuring liberal Democrat Jack O'Connell, the California
Superintendent of Public Instruction, designed to trick voters into
thinking that gay marriage won't be taught in California public
schools. The No on 8 campaign realizes that this is their Achilles heel,
and they are going to say and do whatever they need to in order to
confuse and trick voters.
O'Connell slyly but shamelessly misrepresents the law, saying that
California does not "require" that anything about marriage be taught
in public schools. What he doesn't say is that his own Department of
Education reports that 96% of schools DO TEACH the courses that include
marriage. The Supreme Court's legalization of gay marriage
unquestionably means that young children will be exposed to gay marriage
in school, just as they are in Massachusetts.
Here is the situation we face: Unless we raise $3 million in the next
week, we're going to lose.
Our campaign is presently on the right track and has momentum, but we
cannot withstand this onslaught of spending – getting outspent by $3
million this week and by who knows what next week. We have emptied our
accounts to put $1 million more on TV to respond, but that leaves us
bare. We need to add $1 million more to our advertising schedule in the
next 24 hours for this week, and at least $2 million more for next
If you love the institution of marriage, this is one of those moments
that you will remember the rest of your life. This is the moment when
people of faith were given the chance to make a great sacrifice and save
this precious institution. We have all worked hard as volunteers and
contributors, but this is the moment when traditional marriage as we
know it will either live, or it will die.
Years from now, when we look back on our lives, this will be a day to
remember. The day when marriage went into cardiac arrest, the victim of
a ruthless and false assault on the truth. The day when you had a chance
to sacrifice greatly to save God's precious gift to us.
This is Code Blue for marriage. What is your response?
Me: Fuck you. I'm not bothering you one goddamn bit.
