"This is an extremely unfortunate error by the HRC, which in making [Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd] Blankfein a spokesman for this important political campaign has allowed one of the most relentless enemies of the poor and the disadvantaged to use the gay and lesbian community to buy moral credibility.

What's most distressing about this decision is that the HRC has decided to honor and celebrate the CEO of a company with an extensive record of promoting inequality and preying upon ordinary working people."

-- Rolling Stone writer Matt Taibi castigating HRC for honoring Goldman Sachs at their recent New York benefit gala and announcing the predatory Wall Street giant's CEO as their "national corporate spokesman for same-sex marriage." The article is a must read - especially the post script.
