Getting "activated" by the other side

So, I'm flipping through the Sunday Hartford Courant as I am wont to do for clipping coupons, etc. Then I come across a full-page ad telling readers to call their legislators and tell them to enact legislation to protect the sanctity of marriage. I clipped out the information because I'm going to call and tell them to protect the sanctity of same-sex marriage. How useful it was to have the numbers printed for me!

In other gay marriage news, did you catch Stephen Colbert's parody of the National Organization of Marriage "gathering storm" or how-the-gays-will-get-us-all-wet-and-confused ad? NOM actually thanked Colbert for the exposure. Now I know that I'm preaching to the choir here at the Idea of Order and I really don't want to turn this into a ranting, screaming match in the comments, but the more I see these ads defending marriage, the more I am bewildered and the more hope I have for same-sex marriage to succeed.

Oh, I called the NoM and spoke to someone and, I am assured, will never include me on any of their lists again.
I turned the tables and basically called them un-American because they refused to hire jobless Americans to make those calls. That's not all I said, but that's all I'm saying here.
It was so much fun.
