Porn star confronts Prop H8-er

Marjorie Christofferson — the Mormon daughter of the owner of the infamous El Coyote restaurant and the unofficial heart and soul of the establishment — has reaped the whirlwind.

At the behest of her church, she donated $100 to a campaign supporting Proposition 8, the ballot initiative that eliminates the right of same-sex couples to marry in California. Earlier this month it passed by a narrow majority, and now 18,000 gay families — including some of Margie’s customers — are in legal limbo because their rights have been stripped away.

When word got out of her support for the anti-gay revision to the California state constitution, Margie’s gay clientèle were none too pleased.

Approximately 75 disgruntled customers attended a brunch last Wednesday so they could hear Margie out. She begged customers not to take out their anger on the restaurant. Another manager promised to make donations to Lamda Legal and the Gay & Lesbian Center on the restaurant’s behalf.

But during a question and answer session freelance journalist Sam Page — an “ex-Mormon, reformed porn star and Hollywood fitness trainer” — asked Marjorie if she was willing to make an equal donation in support of overturning Prop 8.

Her answer went over like a fart in church.

I’ll let the video speak for itself…

Hundreds of protesters rallied outside El Coyote the following night, and now an official boycott of the ostensibly pro-gay West Hollywood landmark is underway.

The passage of Proposition 8 has galvanized the gay rights movement, sparking nationwide protests and boycotts of “Yes on 8” donors. Some have accused Prop H8 opponents of religious bigotry for singling out Mormon contributors and Mormon-owned businesses.

This would be a valid criticism if not for the fact that 50% of the pro-H8 campaign budget and 80-90% of the door-to-door canvassing came from Mormon donors and volunteers. In essence The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints declared war on the gay community. The Mormon “prophet” ordered members to donate time and money to its anti-gay crusade. Since the church doesn’t tolerate dissent, a lavender boycott of Mormon businesses is not only justified, it’s a matter of self-preservation.

People like Marjorie Christofferson aren’t being persecuted for their beliefs. They’re being punished for their actions — for supporting a bigoted attack on the gay community.

UPDATE: It should be noted that Sam Page thinks an El Coyote boycott is shortsighted and that a Zen-like approach is more appropriate.

On a lighter note…

Some of you might remember Sam from his unreformed days when he was acting and modeling under the name Sam Tyson. He’s done nude modeling for Men Magazine and Playgirl. He was also one of the first models to appear at Randy Blue. You can see some of his work here and here.

Since saying no to Prop H8 is all about saying yes to love, here’s some photos where Sam seems appropriately undressed for the occasion…
