Hate costs a pretty penny

Or as Just Out puts it, "Bigotry sounds expensive."

JO had a short piece last week on a mailer sent out by the group sponsoring the drive to repeal Oregon's equality laws. According to the article,

...they've identified 18 Oregon "hubs" from which to collect 100,000 petition signatures on or before July 3.

Those cities are: Albany, Astoria Baker City, Beaverton, Bend, Coos Bay, Corvallis, Eugene [Corvallis, Eugene??!!], Grants Pass, Hood River, Klamath Falls, La Grande, Medford, Newport, Salem, Seaside, The Dalles and Wilsonville.

The group is also crying for donations to exceed $50,000 for the printing of "thousands of petition pages, copies of the two laws, signature gathering instructions, an updated Web site [That will be helpful], several costly mailings, petition distribution, promotion, and communication costs for both Initiatives."

Like a desparate army in the throes of its defeat, don't doubt for a second that these folks will stoop to whatever they need to do, in order to further their agenda of hate and intolerance.

**Thanks to Burning or Building Bridges in the Community for catching this one.

And here is the rest of it.
