If you are like me, you believe that fighting religious extremism and anti-gay bigotry is vitally important to achieving equality.
I proudly support Truth Wins Out (TWO) because this no-nonsense organization consistently shines a bright spotlight on our foes, debunks their harmful lies, punctures their dangerous myths and ensures that Americans know the truth about the lives of LGBT people.
This is why I am personally offering Truth Wins Out a matching $5,000 grant. This means, for every tax-deductible dollar you donate, I will match it up to $5 K. Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to support a non-profit organization that I strongly endorse and deeply believe in.
I was inspired to invest in Truth Wins Out after the group’ Executive Director, Wayne Besen, created the American Prayer Hour (APH). This amazing effort was an alternative to the National Prayer Breakfast, which is hosted by The Family, a secretive fundamentalist group linked to Uganda’ notorious Anti-Homosexuality Bill.
Exposing The Family, and their National Prayer Breakfast, matters to each and every one of us. The Family is a virulently anti-gay group made up of powerful and influential lawmakers that harm our families. A snapshot of the membership includes: Sens. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.), James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Tom Coburn (R-Okla), Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Mike Enzi (R-WY), Mark Pryor (R-AK), Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), John Ensign (R-NV). Key House members include: Reps. Zach Wamp (R-Tenn) Frank Wolf (R-Va.), Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.), Heath Shuler (D-NC), Bart Stupak (D-MI) and Joe Pitts (R-PA).
Working diligently, Besen helped bring together more than a dozen organizations to fight back. This coalition created APH events in more than twenty cities, on the same day (Feb. 4) as The National Prayer Breakfast. The result of this extraordinary effort was an avalanche of international attention to The Family’ role in Uganda’ “Kill the Gays” bill. This included stories in The New York Times and MSNBC’ Rachel Maddow Show. President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton both condemned the bill at The National Prayer Breakfast!
As a businessman, I am thoroughly impressed with how much Truth Wins Out has accomplished with its modest resources. Just imagine how much TWO could achieve with the funding it deserves.
This is an organization that is innovative in its advocacy and consistently presents fresh ideas. More importantly, they follow through — turning these cutting-edge ideas into reality. When you invest in Truth Wins Out, you get a big vision, but also tangible results.
I hope you will join me in offering your steadfast support for Truth Wins Out. Please make a tax-deductible contribution today.
