"Stop Dr. Laura!", Action Alert, Feb. 17, 2000

February 17, 2000

STOP DR. LAURA!!!

- When Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker belittled "queers"... he got suspended.
- When 60 Minutes' Andy Rooney belittled Native Americans... he got suspended.
- When golf announcer Ben Wright mocked lesbians... he got fired.
- When writer Jimmy Breslin denigrated Asians... he got suspended.
- When Cincinnati Reds owner Marge Schott disparaged African-Americans... she got fired.
- When football player Reggie White attacked gays... he got dropped by CBS and Campbell's Soup.
- When Jimmy-The-Greek stereotyped African-Americans... he got fired.

But Dr. Laura calls gays "biological mistakes"... and she's getting a TV show from Paramount.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

Paramount pulled a show in 1998 that offended African-Americans ("The Secret Diary of Desmond Pfeiffer"), but is fine with Dr. Laura equating homosexuality with incest and pedophilia. Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered Americans deserve equal respect, not a double standard.

WE STILL HAVE TIME, BUT WE NEED EVERYONE'S HELP. EMAIL PARAMOUNT NOW AND DEMAND DR. LAURA BE DROPPED. THEN SEND THIS MESSAGE TO 10 FRIENDS.

"How many letters have I read on the air from gay men who acknowledge that a huge portion of the male homosexual populace is predatory on young boys?'' - Dr. Laura quoted by Reuters/Variety, Feb. 13, 2000.

Friends, the real predator is intolerance, hatred and bigotry - and it has led to tragedy too many times. In the names of: Matthew Shepard Billy Jack Gaither Brandon Teena Allen Schindler Barry Winchell In the name of every one of us...

PLEASE ACT NOW!
