I just received the deceitful mailing from the supporters of Prop 8 that claims that Barack Obama supports stripping me of my right to marry. It is one of the sleaziest attacks on my personal freedom and civil rights that I have ever seen. Words can't express how hurtful and infuriating it is to have to defend my right to love and marry whom I choose against these outright lies. And, to be clear: Barack Obama has stated unequivocally that he is opposed to Prop 8.
This hateful propaganda is clearly designed to confuse voters and sway opinions without regard to the facts.
Because of the timing, the only recourse opponents of Prop 8 have right now is to counter this smear with as much advertising as we can afford. I have never before asked any of you to contribute to a political cause, nor have I sent you unsolicited information about any of my personal beliefs. This, however, feels like a fight for my life, and time is running out.
I know many of you have already donated money to air ads to counter their hateful messages. If you can find any way to give even a little bit more, it could make all the difference. Additionally, I also ask that you send this message and link to as many people as you can.
PLEASE HELP PROTECT MY RIGHT TO MARRY!
The ballot description for Proposition 8 makes it perfectly clear. Prop 8 "eliminates the right of same sex couples to marry." No On Prop 8, Equality For All is the coalition that is leading the fight to defeat Prop 8 and defend the fundamental right to marry for all Californians. Help me help them.
