An open letter to One Million Moms

Dear One Million Moms,
One Fortune Cookie here. I am writing today to express my sincere and absolute disgust in your hate filled campaign against people you don't even know, as well as your dishonest and fraudulent actions of stealing other people's art and presenting it as your own, in order to propagandize and spread your insidious intolerance.
I would expect that before you embarked upon such a quest, you would cover yourself of any liable actions. However, recently it has come to my attention that you have stolen my Wifester's beautiful photography from her photography web site and used it in your anti-gay campaign against a major retailer, calling upon members of your fundamentalist group to boycott them. Shame on you! Wifester never received a request to use her photography on your site. She never had any contact from you at all.
In the past, when other web sites have found her photography appropriate for their content, they have utilized the "contact" link on her site to send her an email requesting permission. Such permission has been granted, and her photography is now seen on travel sites and others. But you, with your high moral standards and authority, seem to have the idea that you are exempt from needing permission to use other people's art. Well, let me tell you something, One Million Moms, this is called copyright infringement, and it's wrong.
I ask you to remove my Wifester's photography from your anti Home Depot campaign immediately.
And while we are on that subject...why are you only anti Home Depot? I mean, geez, everyone had a booth at Pride. I guess you better boycott all of them too. That includes other retailers, banks, restaurants, and churches as well, some of which were:

Wow, that kinda sucks for you. It's going to be hard to find a bank in Nashville, or adopt a pet, or take your kids to the theater, huh?

I would have never checked out the One Million Moms website if you didn't point out. It is horrible that they used Wifester's photo.

One Million Moms is a group of truly disgusting, hate-filled people.

I know this is an old post, but I think I found something related. The One Million Moms website is now password protected. What a nice high ground. They stole someone's work and now they are going to hide it.

Lessthan - very interesting, indeed! Thanks for sharing that tasty tidbit with me!
