thin, thin line b/w love & hate

"I've wondered for a while how the big lefty non-profits could hire consultants who work with right-wing hate groups at the same time that the lefties are pouring out their innermost secrets to these same consultants," writes John Aravosis. "Convio, a big Internet consulting firm in DC, worked on Howard Dean's campaign among other big lefty clients. Well, now they're working for the Alliance for Marriage, the lead group of anti-gay religious right bigots trying to write us out of the US Constitution... Well, Convio, here's a bumper sticker: Fuck you. And actually, Convio deserves an even bigger fuck you for claiming on its Web site that it doesn't work for clients who 'promote prejudice and hate.' Oh, so writing gays out of the Constitution, trying to rescind every single civil rights protection on the planet for gays, isn't promoting hate and prejudice?" (Americablog)
