Bigots attacking Harvey Milk

From EQCA e-update:

On Tuesday, extremists started a coordinated attack on the Harvey Milk Day Bill.

Catholic Exchange, the premier Catholic website, placed an **URGENT** message on their homepage urging their readers to call Governor Schwarzenegger and stop the bill.

The Christian News Wire also carried a story calling Harvey a notorious sexual predator, a public liar, a terrible model for kids and demanded the Governor veto the bill.

Now is the time to take action and show your support for Harvey’s legacy and for our community.

The Governor’s office has dedicated a special, automated phone line for you to express your support.

Phone the Governor right now at 916.445.2841, and call one of his district offices.

Capitol Office: 916.445.2841
Fresno Office: 559.477.1804
Los Angeles Office: 213.897.0322
Riverside Office: 951.680.6860
San Diego Office: 619.525.4641
San Francisco Office: 415.703.2218

You can also tweet @Schwarzenegger with your support.

We can't be surprised about some Catholics. Did you catch this New York Times article about Catholic bishops backing off longtime support of health care for all God's children for fear some might get abortions. Talk about prioritizing the unborn over the living ...

To claim that HM doesn't deserve his Day or Medal because he was this or that, strikes me as a Works Ethics.

Totally failed, if you ask me.

The Bishops are also against immigration reform if it helps gay people. Fortunately the people in the pew disagree, but the Men in Skirts are doing great harm to social justice.
