KnowThyNeighbor.org Calls Members and Allies to Rally December 16 at Worcester City Hall

Tom Lang is the founder and co-director of KnowThyNeighbor.org, a grassroots coalition of volunteers who run an open forum blog about gay equality and marriage. It was this group that posted the names and addresses of the people who signed the petition to ban gay marriage, in an attempt to promote dialog between people of opposing opinions. Organized hate groups have screamed that this amounts to intimidation since before the website even opened, yet as usual they have failed to prove their accusations.

Instead, KnowThyNeighbor.org has given people of all opinions a place where they can talk directly to each other, and in doing so has opened the door for understanding, and peace. Another of the many benefits this website has given our society is the ability to check to see if our signatures were stolen, and an easy link to report it to the proper channels. Mr. Lang and his co-director Aaron Toleos have kept readers up to date on the latest events concerning the marriage equality struggle, and have served as watchdogs for the numerous unethical tactics used by those seeking to ban gay marriage.

In the latest article posted on his website, Mr. Lang gives a review of the rallies that the hate group known as VoteonMarriage.org has attempted to organize recently, and their shortcomings.

"Thanks to all those who came out in support of Equal Rights. See the below photos and re-caps of the events. And remember, there still is one more rally to go. Saturday December 16th Worcester City Hall 1:30 PM Be There!" Click here for the full story.

Names from the KTN web site - accurate or not - have ben used by gay selectmen to ban people from serving on town boards or commissions if they signed the petition. Doesn't sound like much of a dialog.
