Truly Awful Ad from the No on 8 Campaign

Vote now for Prop 8. Get all your friends and family to the polls today.

Gay marriage activists have sunk to new lows: they are running this ad, which makes a disgusting, vicious, attack on Californians who happen to be members of the LDS Church who have peacefully organized, voted, spoken and donated in order to protect marriage.

Right now they are going after Mormons, but don't think they won't come after you and your rights too. This vile ad expresses the contempt our opponents have for religious liberty and for the very idea of tolerating people who disagree with their views on marriage.

Every faith community in America--every decent voice in America--needs to stand up now and express our solidarity with the LDS Church against these outrageous attacks. Stand up and fight for marriage, for our rights, and for the very idea of tolerance and decency in American political life! (Maggie Gallagher, president of NOM, just weighed in on National Review Online, click here).

If you don't live in California, call up a friend or relative who does. Tell them to get to the polls and vote Yes on 8. Write a letter to the editor to your local paper, and protest this ugly outburst of blatant religious bigotry on a small faith community in America. These powerful politicians need to know: This is an attack not on one small church but on all of us in America who believe in religious liberty and basic human decency.

(In Florida, vote Yes on 2, in Arizona, Yes on 102, and in Connecticut, Yes on Question 1).

Most important, let me repeat: get to the polls. Vote for Prop 8 like your life--or at least your religious liberty--depends on it.

God bless you,

Thank you for this. I'm LDS and am so completely offended by this garbage. I hope people realize that the hatred is NOT coming from the Mormons or other Christians.
