This informative how-to on boycotting one of the big proponents of California’s anti-GLBT and thoroughly evil Proposition 8 appeared in the inbox. The list comes from BoycottMormonBusiness.com. By the way, if you want a list of dishonorable Californians, click here, and don’t forget the bigoted Catholics at the Knights of Columbus. (A note: I want to give a positive shout-out to the Mormons (among them Marie Osmond) and Catholics who opposed Prop 8 — that took courage, and you should be acknowledged for the principled and pro-justice position you took. And also to those whose personal beliefs may not encourage them to support gay marriage yet who understand that religious beliefs have nothing to do with equality under civil law and opposed Prop 8 anyway. Thank you, thank you, thank you.) Take the info to heart, put it to work, and stand for equality!
Family, Friends, Co-workers, LGBTQ Community, Allies, and to all others.
“Now we are engaged in a great civil war” (President Lincoln)
Wars are fought in many ways. I hereby declare that our friends, families and allies nationwide support us in this war for equal rights. Three days ago the our rights were taken away by Proposition 8 in California as well as similar propositions in two other states, all backed by the Mormon Church. Twenty million dollars is a lot for a church to pay to write discrimination into law and they won. I propose we cost them many millions more by fighting the only war that is a proven historical success: Hit ’em in the wallet. I ask each of you to boycott these Mormon owned and/or operated companies. Please circulate this information to everyone by email, blogs, bulletins, phone, fax, flyer, word of mouth. Get the word out that the Mormon church will lose big time until FULL RIGHTS ARE RESTORED and nothing less.
