Anti-Gay forces blackmailing pro-equality donors in California

You probably have heard this already: the opponents of marriage equality in California are desperate, and are now threatening pro-gay businesses with blackmail. In a letter sent to businesses who have donated to the No on 8 campaign, the anti-marriage equality side said,
"Make a donation of a like amount to ProtectMarriage.com which will help us correct this error," reads the letter. "Were you to elect not to donate comparably, it would be a clear indication that you are in opposition to traditional marriage. ... The names of any companies and organizations that choose not to donate in like manner to ProtectMarriage.com but have given to Equality California will be published."
Wow. Extortion. Blackmail. Disgusting tactics. Mudslinging. Where won't the forces of intolerance and hatred go? How low is low enough? How can these people claim to be righteous and then pull tactics like these? Let's show them this will not work. Let's show them fair-minded people everywhere will stand up to their vile and open hate tactics. Donate to No on 8, and tell the blackmailers that that their campaign of scare tactic, hatred, and blackmail will not be tolerated.

Also, please visit the Equality for All website and find out the ways you can help us in the fight to protect marriage equality for all Californians. We need help especially on election day. To sign up directly to volunteer near your home on election day, please click here.

I am asking all fair minded people: are you going to stand for these dirty tactics? Are you going to stand for one side trying to squeeze free speech by putting businesses on some kind of blacklist? If not, please donate to the campaign to defend fairness and equality. And when you have done that, let the Yes on 8 campaign know that you will not stand by and let them use blackmail and intimidation as an election tactic.

Here is the contact information of the group running the dirty campaign of blackmail:

Yes on Proposition 8
915 L Street #C-259
Sacramento, CA 95814
(916) 446-2956
