I'm no big fan of protest rallies, because I think they're generally ineffective. Still, I'm going to attend the rally against the Mormon Church here in NYC on Wednesday night because I think it's good to let the Mormons and New Yorkers know we're watching, and we won't be silent. Here's the info. I hope to see you there.
Date: Wednesday, November 12, 2008
Time: 6:30pm - 8:00pm

PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATION - BRING SIGNS -- ALERT THE MEDIA
Tens of thousands of our brothers and sisters are in the streets in California and and around the country protesting the votes banning same-sex marriage in California.
Join them! Make your voices heard right here in New York City.
We will tell the Mormon Church how we feel about its relentless campaign to condemn and control our lives. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was, by far, the biggest financer of California's heinous and hateful Proposition 8. The Mormon Church begged their members to donate money to Prop 8, pouring 20 million dollars into the campaign. And their attacks on us didn't start there and aren't about to end. They're plotting right now to bring their money and influence to bear against the LGBT community everywhere in this country, including trying to prevent marriage equality in New York.
Join us in speaking out against hate and discrimination! Stop them taking away your rights!
