"The time for nice is over. They stole marriage from us in California. They took away our rights in Maine. Enough is enough. If they want to, are willing to, rip our families apart - and they already have - then we can at the very least demand that they practice the family values that they preach."

-- Blogger John Aravosis seconding my call for dirt on the conservative Indiana legislators who voted in favor of a marriage amendment this week

Gotta be nitpicky here. The Maine legislature actually voted for marriage equality.

It was "the people" that vetoed it.

Implement a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY towards any bureacrat, legislator, governor, congresscritter, senator, president, etc. - but ONLY those - who deny LGBTQQIAAP equal rights.

Yes, be sure of their personal life facts, and hold them to the same high standards they wish for others.

Yet, don't hesitate to publish - YES, PUBLISH - their home addresses. Why? Simply because their constituents might be having difficulty getting through to them on their office phone. (BTW, this is public information. So, let's do the public a public service ... )

"All's fair in love and war". This is both.

I live in Indiana. While I am am writing letters and talking to everyone I know about this, I do not believe that stooping to the level of spreading dirt is where we as a community want to be.

We need to stand on higher ground than those that see to defeat us. That is how we win. Not by slinging mud.
