HOW DOES IT WORK?
This will be a peaceful demonstration in the spirit of the holidays.
Dress alike. Wear the same t-shirts or signs pinned to your coats. You can make or buy a "2nd Class Citizen" t-shirt, but the message is optional. Learn more about why we suggest "2nd Class Citizen."

WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?
Hosting peaceful candlelight vigils
We will stay silent unless asked a question, we will not yell, instigate, or bear signs. Instead, we will let our shirts do the talking and our candles pay our respects. Bring candles (battery powered if you'll be huddling inside).
Singing and/or silence encouraged...chanting is not....keep it peaceful and in the holiday spirit.

Petition: President-elect Barack Obama invites opponent of Prop 8 Pastor Rev. Rick Warren to give the invocation at his inauguration
It is appalling that President-elect Barack Obama would invite California Pastor Rev. Rick Warren, an ardent supporter of Prop 8 and someone who is opposed to the equality of LGBT Americans, to give the invocation at his inauguration.
Demand that President-elect Obama immediately rescind this invitation, at: www.eqca.org/actioncenter

Would President-elect Obama invite someone to give the invocation who supported eliminating the civil rights of a minority other than the LGBT community? Of course he wouldn’t! This is a slap in the face to the millions of LGBT Americans and their allies who supported his historic candidacy.

I was surprised by Obama's pick. I'm not sure what to make of it. On the surface, it is disappointing and even angering, but I'm not quite ready to judge the decision. I feel like there must be some explanation.

What can I say? I'm soft on Obama.

I heard obama's justification for picking warren was to "cross party lines."

I call BS.
