Wow. It's official. I'm a "homosexual activist." And you may be too!
The American Family Association (AFA) sent out an action alert today slamming Governor Mitch Daniels. Earlier this month the Guv was asked whether he would push for a state constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. "I do believe there are other things more important to our future, at least other things that a governor and the people around him can try to work on. And, secondly, I'm always trying to bring this state together, and we don't have, I don't believe, the luxury of division," Governor Daniels replied.
The attack e-mail goes on to bemoan that the Governor sent a letter to Indy Pride that was printed in the pride guide. It claims that the governor "was not concerned about divisiveness" when Indianapolis had a gay pride parade a few days earlier. Because, you know, the parade and pride festival were sooooo shocking! And they even have pictures -- "taken by homosexual activists" -- to prove it to you! Seriously! Click here to see them.
Recognize the 2nd picture? The one of bilerico readers Zach and Christian? Uh, yeah. I did too. Here they are side-by-side - the AFA site and my original photo.

So what's a guy to do? Well, first I clicked on over to my Flickr account and made sure that my picture wasn't covered under Creative Commons. And it isn't; it's copyright. And then I called former bilerico contributor Karen Celestino-Horseman. She's an attorney. The AFA should expect a cease and desist letter soon.
But I want to know if you saw your picture on the AFA gallery! See one of your pics up there? Leave a comment or email me so I can get you in touch with Karen and she can help get your photo taken down.
