They've Gone Berserk: Anti-Gay Extremists Intensify Attack on Pro-LGBT Republican Lawmaker
The anti-gay extremists are going berserk.
They've launched an all out attack on Florida Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen who is the first and ,so far, only Republican to co-sponsor a bill that would repeal the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
Ros-Lehtinen is a longtime Equality Florida supporter and a 2010 Voice for Equality Award honoree for her work to end Don't Ask, Don't Tell and as a founder of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus. She's stood her ground against these extremists in the past but this time they are coming after her like never before.
Anti-gay extremists know that public opinion has shifted dramatically in the direction of equality and our country is at a tipping point. That is why the attacks are so over the top and desperate. The notorious National Organization for Marriage (NOM) and the so-called Christian Family Coalition (CFC) have targeted the congresswoman and are asking their supporters to bombard her with letters and calls.
Now our community needs to let her and her colleagues know that when you stand up the discrimination, we'll have your back.
Please take a moment to thank Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen for her leadership in ending marriage discrimination.
