Write for rights

On Wednesday, the U.S. senate is scheduled to vote on the discriminatory federal marriage amendment. Even though there's no chance of its passing, the right-wingers are hoping to make gay marriage a wedge issue, splitting folks into "defenders of marriage" and, apparently, turtle lovers. Yes, it's ridiculous to me, too, but apparently enough folks have bought into it to make this a very real danger.

A number of organizations are circulating petitions against the proposed amendment. Here are the ones I know about:

Human Rights Campaign

NARAL Pro-Choice America

People for the American Way

Working Assets

Technorati: , LGBT, marriage equality,

Make love, not stupid F***ing amendments.

Pardon my Cheney.

My sentiments exactly.
