Convio's crisis of conscience
Convio's crisis of conscience:

1. Responding to the Convio blowup
I was as surprised as anyone to learn that Convio recently added the anti-gay Alliance for Marriage to its client roster. John Aravosis on Americablog went off on Convio first. Then Atrios picked up the story. And Kos upped the ante with a pretty inflammatory post calling for a boycott.

2. Staying focused
The Alliance for Marriage isn't just another exteme group pushing a gay marriage ban. They're a group that uses gay marriage as a wedge with African American and Latino voters.

3. Choosing sides
As a follow up to Part I and Part II, I have a question: Is it reasonable to expect businesses to choose sides in the war against gays and lesbians?
