Reject the Anti-Gay GOP Rhetoric

"The Texas GOP has put forth a 2010 party platform that says gay people shouldn't have custody of children and that issuing a marriage license or performing a marriage ceremony for a same-sex couple should be punishable by jail time. It's one thing for extremist groups to spout this type of bigotry, but that's way too far for one of the nation's two main political parties!

The Republican National Committee (RNC) is trying to avoid the issue, but a huge public outcry can force them to take sides. Is this really what they want voters to think the GOP stands for as the 2010 elections approach?

Send a letter to RNC Chairman Michael Steele asking him to repudiate this outrageous platform."

Please help by signing the petition!

"1 Million To Stop Uganda's Anti-Gay Law
This week, Uganda is considering a law that would make being gay punishable by prison -- even death.

The President sent the bill for review, following initial international criticism. But vocal extremist lobbyists are pushing for the bill to pass -- threatening targeted persecution and bloodshed.

Only a tremendous wave of worldwide pressure could tip the balance in Parliament towards tolerance: Let's get 1 million names on the petition to stop this brutal law . We have just days left -- send the petition on for friends and family to sign and it will be delivered to Uganda's politicians, donors and embassies around the world:

To President Museveni of Uganda, Members of the Review Committee, and donor governments:
We stand with citizens across Uganda who are calling on their government to withdraw the Anti-Homosexual Bill, and to protect the universal human rights embodied in the Ugandan constitution. We urge Uganda’s leaders and donors to join us in rejecting persecution and upholding values of justice and tolerance."

Please, guys, please, PLEASE sign this petition!

In fact, please post this on your own journal! Consider this a meme and I'm tagging everyone! There's only a few days until this law is or isn't passed and signatures are going way too slowly. If years of shooting myself in the foot socially have taught me anything it's that the internet is a VERY powerful tool.

Actually, the first 5 people who read this, sign the petition and repost the link in their own journals (please link me to the entry) will receive a 100-word drabble of their choice from one of the following fandoms:

Supernatural, Big Bang Theory, Merlin, Kingdom Hearts, Gundam Wing, Full Metal Alchemist, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Harry Potter, or Inuyasha.
