Betraying the Cause?
Recently I received a mass e-mail from Equality California executive director Geoff Kors about the fight to restore marriage equality. The subject heading was: "How are we going to win in California?" It began, "Dear ____," and posed a question: "I get asked all the time ... 'Why do we keep losing at the ballot box?'" Kors answered with this political strategy: "We'll win when enough people get to hear our stories."
There are two very odd things about Kors's e-mail.
