For the next 48 hours, a generous Projector has made an offer to the Bilerico community that can't be ignored! Our reader will match up to $1000 total raised on Bilerico if at least 12 people donate in the next 48 hours.

Donate to No On 1/Maine Marriage Equality via Bilerico's ActBlue page and your donation will be doubled!

We currently stand at 13 contributors who've donated $565 to Maine. We need 25 donorsby noon on Thursday to get the matching funds. Our donor will match the total amount of contributions raised by our new donors up to $1000.

We've set a goal of raising $5000 from the Bilerico communities for the fight in Maine. That's paltry compared to the Maine Catholic Bishop's decree that all Catholic churches in Maine will hold a special second collection next Sunday for the anti-gay forces pushing the referendum.

Don't miss this chance to get double your money's worth of equal rights!

If a dozen people donated $83, we'd meet our goal. We could also do it with 20 people donating $50 or 40 Projectors giving $25 each. Even if you can only spare $10, we'll gladly take it and pass it on - as a $20 donation!

Keep in mind, this isn't a wealthy man willing to give spare change to Maine. This is someone just like you or I - struggling to make ends meet in today's economy. Our demographics info shows us that most Projectors aren't rich; they trend toward the lower income activist types.

Making a $1000 donation will put a dent in our donor's pocketbook too, but he's willing to do it for Projectors who will join him in helping Maine keep marriage equality.

Big thanks to our anonymous donor and to contributor Phil Reese for setting this up for us.

PS - Won't you help us raise $2000 for marriage equality in Maine? After all, when was the last time you could really double your money this easily?

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."


-HEY #p2! (Progressives).

We can't do this alone.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans have been fighting for over half a Century to have basic Civil Rights. We have so much to do, and we are such a small group. Without an army of Progressive allies, we can't win. Our rights as American citizens are constantly being compromised, despite life-time service to our nation as good, contributing citizens. We can't wait any longer. We need our Progressive allies to step up and go to bat for us TODAY.

We must demand Progressives have got to make LGBT rights a top priority in 2010, or we will keep being put on the back-burner.

There will ALWAYS be something more important than LGBT equality affecting America--issues like Health Care Reform and the Economy effect LGBT people too! However, when we are discriminated against under the law every single day, we can't give our all to fixing these problems. We are long overdue to be counted as equal citizens. That&#…

WHAT. THE. HELL? NEW HAMPSHIRE??? (and a prop 8 update)

Okay, first let me just say CALIFORNIA can breathe easy for a few more days as San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsome convinced the Supreme Court to hold of on releasing their decision on Prop 8 a few more days until the 30th anniversary of the White Night Riots is passed.  We're probably going to see it Tuesday, the following Thursday or THAT following Monday.  
NOW:  WHAT THE HELL, NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSE?!?!?!?!???!?!?!?!????!
The NEW HAMPSHIRE House, which on May 6 APPROVED Marriage Equality by a vote of 178-167, has now stalled the REWRITTEN BY GOVERNOR JOHN LYNCH bill 188-186--That's right, folks, two votes.  25 members did not vote at all, and opponents of the bill failed to kill it in a 173-202 vote, but this STILL means we're waiting on NEW HAMPSHIRE to GET ITS SHIT TOGETHER!  The House passed a resolution to continue negotiating with the Senate by a vote of 207-168.  If that same number votes for the 're-re-renegotiated' bill in the next two weeks it will pass, but …
