Tonight and tomorrow, thousands of religious extremists will gather in Sacramento for “The Call” — an event organized by Lou Engle’s organization and promoted by right-wingers like former Arkansas Governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council.
If this must-watch promotional video is any indication, it will probably be like the NOM Summer Tour on steroids — and Arisha Hatch and staffers from the Courage Campaign Institute will be there to document it all:
For Americans concerned about the separation of church and state, this leading presidential contender’s words are harrowing.
Huckabee’s support for Engle comes just a few months after Huckabee compared same-sex marriage to incest, drug abuse and polygamy, going on to say that gay and lesbian couples should not be allowed to parent, because kids “aren’t puppies.”
We can’t let Huckabee and Engle get away with their attacks on LGBT families or Judge Walker’s Prop 8 decision. That’s why Courage staffers are going to “The Call” tonight to expose Engle’s extremism for the world to see on on the Prop 8 Trial Tracker. Will you make a contribution right now to help us fight back and defend Judge Walker’s decision? Just click here to help us cover our costs, including staff time, travel expenses and video production.
In a few hours, we’ll have an update for you from Arisha and crew, as they get on the road to Sacramento.
