Civil Rights News; the Good, the Bad, the Idiots

There's a lot of civil rights news happening this week. There's GOOD, BAD and IDIOTS. I'll be happy to point them out as you read through them.

  • *IDIOT***Rick Perry praises effort to end marriage equality in N.H.
    Texas Gov. Rick Perry has come out in support of an effort to reverse New Hampshire's marriage equality law, telling a conservative audience in Manchester, "I applaud those legislators in New Hampshire who are working to defend marriage as an institution between one man and one woman, realizing that children need to be raised in a loving home by a mother and a father."

  •  University of Michigan employees consider leaving if anti-gay bill passes
    A bill in the Michigan Senate that would prohibit state schools from extending benefits to the domestic partners of gay and lesbian employees could prompt an exodus of University of Michigan professors, according to this article. University officials said passage of the measure would put the school at a competitive disadvantage in attracting top talent. (Mich.) (10/31) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

**GOOD**Wash. state voters would back marriage equality law, poll shows
A new poll in Washington state finds that 55% of registered voters would support a law extending marriage rights to same-sex couples, with 38% saying they'd vote to reverse such a law if it is passed by the state Legislature. State Sen. Ed Murray and State Rep. Jamie Pedersen are considering introducing a marriage bill in the next legislative session. The statewide poll was conducted by the University of Washington Center for Survey Research. The Seattle Times/Politics Northwest (10/31)

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
