the righteous are all the same
Derek Powazek decided that since he disagreed with the viewpoints of three San Francisco residents who have filed suit to stop the gay marriages at City Hall, it was somehow fair to post the personal data of three women in San Francisco with the same name as one of the plaintiffs in the suit. He avoids picking on either of the two men who joined this woman in the suit, for an unknown reason.

Powazek also blasts "religious conservatives," presumably because one of the three plaintiffs is the "pastor of the First Orthodox Presbyterian Church."

Here's why I think this is lame: Powazek is posting personal information about three women who have the same name as one of the plaintiffs. At least two of them, and possibly all three, are not the woman he has an issue with, so there are some innocents in the cross-fire. But that's a minor point compared to his tactics of diagreement. Inviting people to call these women at home and berate them for what they believe in is the same sort of idelogical persecution that Powazek says he's fighting against.

Not only that, it's illegal.

I wonder if Powazek was aghast at the anti-abortion activists who published the home addresses of doctors who performed abortions. (After a doctor was killed, their name was crossed off of the list.)
