Soulforce Email Letterhead Image "The Religious Right is not going away...but neither is Soulforce." A Special Message from Executive Director Jeff Lutes Dear Melody, 2006 Values Voter Summit Last night on FOX, Bill O'Reilly and Ann Coulter agreed that Governor Mitt Romney (R-Mass) is a strong candidate for President in 2008. I want to share with you some chilling audio clips of Governor Romney, James Dobson, Tony Perkins, and Alan Sears from a recent summit I attended in Washington DC. The Religious Right and their political allies continue to spread panic and pandemonium about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans. Last night, James Dobson spoke at a huge "Stand for the Family" rally in St. Paul, Minnesota, and next week Tony Perkins will travel to Governor Mitt Romney's state of Massachusetts to film a national broadcast featuring fundamentalists who falsely claim that their "religious liberties are already being trampled due to same-sex marriage and the homosexual agenda." They want "Bible-believing Americans" to "act now to defeat legitimization of same-sex marriage in Massachusetts and elsewhere." The Religious Right is not going away.... but neither is Soulforce. In 2006, we've become better organized and more effective. We look forward to 2007 with plans that are bold, exciting, and expansive. Those plans include a second Equality Ride, a national challenge to the fraudulent "ex-gay" movement, sit-ins for marriage equality, a coast-to-coast action by our heterosexual allies, and intensified civil disobedience to end the antigay campaign from the doctor of distortion and his factory of fibs (Dobson & Focus on the Family). Our unique style of "take it to the streets" direct activism is more important than ever before. Soulforce needs you to take a stand today by becoming a monthly donor to champion our work for justice and equality. Right now your monthly contribution will go twice as far because Soulforce supporter Bruce Bastian (philanthropist and founder of WordPerfect) has generously offered to double new monthly donations over the course of a year, up to $25,000! Or, make a one time donation and Bruce will match that as well if you've never made a donation to Soulforce before, now is the time to give! With your continued support, Soulforce will educate America about the dangerous connection between Christian dogma and the assault on the civil liberties of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans. Working together, we can build a movement of fair-minded Americans who will put an end to religion-based discrimination. Thank you for doing justice with Soulforce. Sincerely, Jeff Lutes signature Jeff Lutes, MS, LPC Executive Director Soulforce, Inc. The goal of Soulforce is freedom for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people from religious and political oppression through the practice of relentless nonviolent resistance.
