Stand up and be counted

In today's episode of gutless, the people who put Proposition 8 on the ballot in California (the one that stripped the right of same-sex couples to get married, even though they'd been getting married for five months without causing the end of the world), are suing to shield people who donated to the cause from being held accountable.

The group wants to change California law, which states that anyone who gives $100 or more to a state campaign must disclose name, address, employer. They are claiming that harassment and threats are behind their decision to sue. They aren't wrong, I suspect. And I don't condone threats.

But if you're going to support stealing someone's civil rights because you're too narrow-minded to acknowledge a different form of love, then stand up and let your hate shine publicly.
