Many teachers and utility consumers in California are angry over campaign contributions made by a teachers union and a utility provider in support of homosexual "marriage."
Brad Dacus, founder of the Pacific Justice Institute, has been keeping tabs on the California Teachers Association (CTA) and Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) and working with American Family Association to expose the companies' support of same-sex marriage. Both companies made large financial contributions to fight Proposition 8, which would restore California's definition of traditional marriage and overturn the recent court ruling legalizing homosexual marriage in the Golden State.
"After Pacific Gas & Electric gave a quarter of a million dollars to oppose Proposition 8, and after the California Teachers Association gave over a million dollars to oppose Proposition 8, they are now financially taking a hit," Dacus explains.
According to the attorney, more than 5,000 people -- many of them teachers who are disenchanted with CTA's political donation -- have cancelled service with PG&E and are now obtaining service from companies that generally charge less as well as support family values.
"Countless numbers of public school teachers [who are] outraged with their teachers union are contacting the Pacific Justice Institute and downloading information from ChooseCharity.org in order to switch from this union and have all of their union dues given to a charity that's in agreement with their faith instead of the union," Dacus adds.
Regardless of the outcome of the election, Dacus hopes the campaign against the two organizations will continue. More information about California utilities that support traditional marriage is available at NOtoPGE.com.
