Smilin' & Dialin' for NO on Prop 8

Hey Californians,

I’ve got some news on how you can talk on the phone for a couple hours and help our community at the same time!

I was talking to some one of the Regional Field Organizers for HRC the other day, who put me in touch with our local office. One of the biggest things needed, he said, was people to man the phones. It’s easy, it’s painless, and it only takes a couple of hours.

The segment of society that is undecided on their stand on Prop 8 are the ones they want to speak with.

One of the biggest concerns for the “good guys” is that well-meaning and pro-gay marriage folks are confusing whether voting “Yes” or “No” is the right thing to do.

“Why, ‘Yes” I want gay marriage. I’m voting ‘Yes’.”

NO!

We all want to vote NO on Prop 8:

“NO! I won’t let those crazy, right-wing religious nuts determine the destiny for my brother/sister/ mother/father/neighbor/friend. I’m voting ‘NO’!”

NO ON PROP 8

If you are in the San Francisco, Long Beach, or San Diego area, you can find a place to start smilin’ and dialin’ at Queers United.

Or, if you’re in the Sacramento area, you can volunteer at those phone banks here:

Mormon $s are now at 35% of the Yes donations, and that is just the sum of those donations … It could be higher. Is there a fundamental question here: Is a religious institution trying to buy this election and change the California Constitution??? We know they have been going door-to-door for more than a month to attempt to place 1 million lawns signs in California neighborhoods the last few weeks of September …but right now they are claiming on various websites that LDS members account for more than one-third of donations to Yes on 8…you might want to check it out…

Nick Rangel-

Yes, they are trying to buy this election. What they are risking, however, is a complete collapse of the Mormon faith. There has been a rather large backlash among the younger members of the Church who feel that the Elders are wasting money on a social cause.
