Barney Frank wasn't pleased about the disruption of the House Education and Labor Committee meeting yesterday by activists from GetEQUAL.
''What a stupid thing to do.''
''no help whatsoever"
''How does this help us get the bill passed? Who's mind are they going to change?''
Robin McGehee of GetEQUAL's response? ''Prove us wrong, and make it happen. Everything we do, we do respectfully. We have to disrupt, because we don't have the access to power. I would say, from his position of power, as an openly gay man, who is serving his community well . . . he may no longer be able to identify with those suffering with fear of job loss or other problems because of their identity.''
Yesterday, more than 200 organizations issued a statement to Congress. The statement: “Pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act NOW.”
