Friendfactor, a web related gay rights organization, announced on February 10th, that they will be sending flowers to the senators of Maryland, based on the amount of Marylanders who call in to there legislators in support of Senate Bill 116, the Religious Freedom and Civil Marriage Protection Act.
For every call in to the legislators, via MarylandPop.org, Friendfactor will add another flower to send to that senator. The point to sending the flowers is so that the senators can see that people care and want homosexuals to be able to marry in the state. The first deliveries will be on Valentine’s day, and continue for the duration of the bill.
According to sunherald.com, the flower sending is part of a campaign started by Friendfactor called “pop the question.” They want gay Marylanders to ask friends of theirs, that are straight, to visit MarylandPop.org to show their support. FriendFactor also started friendfactor.org in order to educate straight people on the inequalities homosexuals face in America. It is also used to get straight people to support their gay friends.
All in all Friendfactor has a pretty good idea. What better day to start sending out flowers to support gay marriage, than Valentine’s day?
