We have all heard of the Hollywood "Blacklist" of the 1950s when people were denied employment because of suspected associations with the American Communist Party. Liberals have especially spoken about the blacklist in disgust.
Fast forward sixty years. On November 4th, a referendum known as Proposition 8 was on the ballot for California voters. People all across the nation participated, despite it being a California-only measure.
It passed, despite the many leftists fighting it and some North Carolina citizens gave money to the cause in support of it. This year, instead of a blacklist, your blogger, along with others, proposes a white list, a group of donors with whom we SHOULD do business, thanks to their support of California's Prop 8.
Thanks to the California Secretary of State's office, KCC discovered who donated in support of Proposition 8. Though some are private citizens or retired, there is a movement nationally to get people in every state to support those who have businesses, who donated supporting the measure protecting traditional marriage.
Out of 153 total donors from the Old North State, 13 brave citizens stood up and said, "we want to preserve traditional marriage."
Here we list, alphabetically, by first name, those who gave in Support of Prop 8. Typepad isn't great at doing tables, but here goes:
Carolyn Schramm $200 Charlotte N/A
Donald Luther $100 Hampstead N/A
Hal Abbott $250 Garner Access International
Holden Higgenbotham $250 Chapel Hill UNC-CH
James Helvey $500 Winston-Salem CMT Asset MGT
Jason Yedowitz, Sr $50 Indian Trail Self-employed
Judy H. Sherrill $1,000 Hickory N/A
Kenneth Purcell $100 Mooresville Hendrick Motorsports
Lai Chow Kok $100 Winston-Salem Winston-Salem Cardiology
Patrick Donleycott $100 Mebane N/A
Richard Rust $100 Chapel Hill N/A
anon. $100 Raleigh requested removal

If you can, do business with their employers, and if you know them, show them some love this Christmas season. Heck, show everyone some love! But thank these folks for standing up for our traditional marriages. It sadly seems that tradition is going out of fashion.

Editor's Note:Your blogger is not opposed to gay people and supports legalized civil unions, but she staunchly opposes traditional church weddings where people of the same sex get married.
