Hate campaign

It’s a modern day crusade – a waste of taxpayer money and motivated entirely by prejudice and hate.

In the wake of President Obama’s brave stand against discrimination, my Republican colleagues did exactly as I’d hoped they wouldn’t. They mobilized in support of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act and are preparing to appoint their own lawyer to make sure this discriminatory law remains in force. Are you as outraged as I am? The Republicans purposely saved their announcement for the last minute on a Friday so it would be next to impossible to organize a response to this crusade against equal rights for the LGBT community. But there are two things you can do right now: Tweet your outrage (http://www.fearlesscampaign.com/Twitter-DOMA) and share it on Facebook (http://www.fearlesscampaign.com/Facebook-DOMA).

As both a gay man and a member of Congress, I am saddened and disgusted by Speaker Boehner’s actions.  Not only did he launch a crusade against equality – he purposely tried to slip it through late on Friday, in the hope that no one would notice.

Don’t let this crusade pass unnoticed. Help me spread the word so we can launch a counter-movement.
