Excerpt from an email sent to me concerning the anti-gay marriage Propostion #8:
“Marjorie Christofferson, the owner of el coyote, apparently is a donor to “yes on prop 8”. (See link below to la times site listing all donors in our zip for and against prop 8. The site lists Marjorie and lists her business as el coyote).
It is one thing to donate and vote against our rights (that is an individual choice). But it is quite another to do so while taking our gay dollars each and every day. (Don’t bring me my chips and salsa and say “hi” with a fake smile while then using my money to stab me and my family in the back.)
We all know and love the staff of this restaurant. They are true friends and are wonderful members of our extended community. But I do not feel like we should be giving our money to el coyote so Marjorie can then take those dollars to fuel hate and deny our basic dignity.
In fact, I think we should make this point in a very LOUD way.
Details to follow… But in the meantime, spread the word that the owner of El Coyote is apparently NOT our friend. “
