No Mob

I’m a little surprised at the lack of comprehensiveness of the list of signers of the “No Mob Veto” letter published in today’s NYT. To be sure, this protest against violence against and intimidation of Mormons for their support of Proposition 8 comes from the right side of the spectrum (the Becket Fund), but I would have expected signatures from the ADL’s Abe Foxman and David Saperstein of Reform Judaism’s Religious Action Center (even though they opposed Prop. 8). And nothing from Mainline Protestantism or Islam. Doesn’t Becket know how to put together a coalition, or was there some other problem?
