Harry Potter Alliance Asks Maine Muggles to Oppose Gay Marriage Repeal - Washington Wire - WSJ:
I love it.
"The wizard lobby is wading into Maine’s fight over gay marriage.
The Harry Potter Alliance, a Massachusetts-based nonprofit that is “dedicated to bringing the themes of Harry Potter into the real world” announced today a grassroots effort to help defeat a Nov. 3 ballot initiative in Maine that seeks to repeal a recent state law legalizing same sex marriage.
The alliance announced an Oct. 24 concert series in Portland featuring Harry and the Potters and Draco and the Malfoys—two indie rock bands that sing songs from the perspective of Harry Potter characters.
The bands and concert attendees will then spend the day canvassing voters to vote against Proposition 1 in conjunction with Maine Equality, a gay rights group. Then, the bands will play a second concert, which will be live-streamed to fans who are also being asked to take part in a phone bank that day."
"...So voting “yes” will repeal it and voting “no” will enact it. Or as the Harry Potter Alliance might put it to voters: What Would Dumbledore Do?"
I love it.
