Shame Elton John into giving Rush’s money to marriage equality

Elton John just sold out marriage equality to Rush Limbaugh. The famed piano man played at Limbaugh's fourth wedding on June 5th in Palm Beach. Limbaugh opposes gay marriage and general human decency.  On his radio show, Limbaugh claimed that: "Democrats will bend over, grab the ankles, and say ‘Have your way with me'" to gay voters. Elton John has lambasted the "misogynistic attitudes of some people in this county" and called American Idol's voting "incredibly racist" but the openly gay pop singer took no issue with taking a check from someone who called California's Prop 8 "sensible."

Elton's sellout serenade didn't come cheap: His fee was reported at $1 million. That's a lot of hate money, and Elton should donate it to the marriage equality or gay rights group of his choice.

Help send Elton John the message that his fans won't stand by as he sells out marriage equality!

To:
Elton John, Elton John
Rush Limbaugh’s money is a stain on your hands. Limbaugh opposes marriage equality and has ridiculed gays on his national radio show. By playing at his wedding, you mocked the cause of gay rights and lost my respect as a fan.

I urge you to donate 100 percent of you reported $1 million fee to the cause of gay rights. Money is worth so much less than equality.

Sincerely,

Sincerely,
[Your name]
