PG&E takes a stand AGAINST Traditional Marriage – Contributes $250,000 to “No on 8” Campaign
Unbelievable!! Let’s let them know what we think about this. I’ve already emailed them my opinion.
California’s ‘homosexual marriage’ public utility
Ed Thomas – OneNewsNow – 8/1/2008
One of California’s pro-family advocates says it’s wrong — both in “substance and style” — for public utility Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) to take a political position against Proposition 8, the ballot measure supporting traditional marriage in this fall’s election.
PG&E announced this week that it will donate $250,000 to the “No on 8” campaign, and join with campaign reps and officials from the sponsoring homosexual group Equality California to create a business advisory council which will encourage state businesses to help defeat the ballot measure.
Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families, says no public utility should be allowed to take such a position. “They provide power — gas and electricity. They should not be taking positions against ballot measures,” he emphasizes. “That’s like a quasi-government agency taking positions against ballot measures, which is illegal.”
He adds that the money contribution would also seem to make PG&E, which services a large part of central and northern California, “the homosexual marriage utility.”
Regardless, Thomasson says it is clear business owners and voters must make a decision. “It’s time for businesses to take a stand. It’s either yes or no for natural marriage,” says the pro-family leader. “The voters need to take a stand — yes or no for Proposition 8.” And businesses, he adds, need to take a stand — with their dollars — for the amendment.
