Oni Press Stands Up for Marriage Equality

In an open letter posted to their Twitter account, comic publisher Oni Press “fired” their office and shipping supply company ULine over the issue of marriage equality. ULine’s CEO has been helping fund Family-PAC, an organization that describes itself as “pro-family, anti-tax political action committee in Illinois.”

The organization has been campaigning against SB10, which legalizes same sex marriage in Illinois. The legislation has passed and the hatemongers PAC have vowed to continue to fight for “Christian values” and against marriage equality as it says on their site, much like the fight against abortion has continued even after the Supreme Court’s decision (their comparison).

Sigh…

Congrats to Oni for doing the right thing and speaking with their dollars. Hopefully comic fans will reword them by speaking with theirs and purchasing a few more of their comics.
