8. Political donations are made public and published by officials for a reason
Edited on Wed Dec-10-08 10:36 AM by bluedawg12
if individuals donated against the rights of their fellow human beings then, that fact that vote brings consequences.

Calling an economic boycott is not a blacklist. It is an economic tool used by the right wing to exert their political pressure.

As far as individuals, if some have quite their jobs because of grass roots complaints from citizens then they should have considered their anti-civil rights vote if they worked in jobs or industry that was gay dependent for business.

>>But what if that situation were reversed and Eckern were targeted because he opposed Proposition 8? Or because he was gay?<<

What if?? That "if" would be living in Oklahoma, or Georgia, or Kansas or any number of States where being gay, is actively discriminated against.
