Taking Names 2

The nasty call did come, but to the site operators who want to out those who sign anti-same-sex-marriage initiative petitions. Both anti- and pro-homosexual rights folk decried the concept of the site, Know They Neighbor, according to the piece in today's Boston Herald.

We are still ambiguous about the concept, but both sides have representatives weighing, down heavy on the site.

While Secretary of State William Galvin said what the site was doing was public record and legal:
"If they really wanted to be helpful in protecting equal marriage rights, they can show their support by talking to people and sharing stories, not by putting up this silly, mean-spirited Web site,'' said Marty Rouse, campaign director for MassEquality, a coalition of gay rights groups.

"I appreciate the professionalism of the colleagues across the aisle that this is not in the best interests of the type of campaign we would like to run,'' said Kristian Mineau, president of the Massachusetts Family Institute, leaders of the petition drive.
We can certainly understand the frustration with the site operators leading to doing this. So many anti folk have such nasty, hateful, dishonest sites pimping their causes. Yet, should it be fire with fire?
