No on 8 Needs Money

Mombian just updated her Write to Marry post with this update from Equality California, which is echoed on the No on 8 Take Action page:
On Tuesday, the other side reported donations of $2.2 million, dwarfing the $255,650 we reported, and called on their donors to contribute another $3 million.

With this enormous sum of money they are buying every available ad space on TV in California to blast even more of their hateful lies and prevent our messages from being seen.

Unless we raise $3 million in the next three days we will likely lose.

I'm heading over to make another donation via Lesbian Dad's links (which support Equality California, one of two major organizations leading the fight against Prop. 8--you can get there via the thermometer to the right, although I encourage you to pop over to Lesbian Dad and read her wonderful prose). Please join me.

i was just reading an article about election celebrations being planned around the bay area, and ran across the link to the first congregational church of berkeley: http://www.fccb.org/ this congregation has been very active in supporting marriage equality, and is hosting an election night gathering: http://www.fccb.org/programs/details.php?eventID=633

i was raised religious and am not now, but my chest gets all tight with happiness when i read of religious communities working so hard for fairness.
