Beetle Blogger Joins the DNA!
“It is clear that the social networks online are powerful tools for whichever side can utilize them best. It’s a digital war, and to win we need to tap into our digital resources. Currently, our views are woefully outnumbered and squelched online. No one can even see proponent posts without digging because our opponents have squashed then through their sheer numbers and vocal (if not abrasive) comments and reactions. We need to enter the fray en masse to allow the truth to be heard. My goal is to prepare our digital volunteers to be honest, respectful, loving, relentless, and pro-traditional marriage rather than anti-gay. “
—DNA Team Captain
Welcome to the Digital Network Army!
Together we can make a crucial difference in how the public views marriage and family issues. We have the potential to become what may be the difference between winning and losing the marriage battle in our country.
Here’s how our system works: Each participant pledges to spend at least 20 to 30 minutes each day working for the DNA. An assignment will be issued from your Team Captain each day via email. A portion of your time will be spent visiting and promoting the assigned posts and videos that support our cause en masse. As we join together, these key posts will rise to the top where the public will readily see them. The rest of your time will be reserved for visiting your own choice of blogs/networks and making a positive difference.
Why is this important? Because currently our opponents are far more active, numerous, and outspoken online. Their sheer numbers are squashing our viewpoints, removing any ally opinions to forgotten regions where no one will ever discover them unless they dig for them.
We must collectively be relentless. We will be successful, but only if we first educate ourselves on the issues and remain honest, respectful, loving, and pro-traditional marriage rather than anti-gay.
These are not easy goals amidst the fury of the online debate — but please demand nothing less of yourself. There is no reason to let our opponents lower our standards for us. Ignore expletive tangents, respond only to the issues, and retain a tough layer of skin.
As you begin, please secure your personal information online. You may want to take off any reference to your phone number or address (or other personal information – maybe your name or business name) from your own blog and other blogs/social sites. It is up to you how secure you want to be.
Lastly, take courage! We are taking off on an adventure together! We are not alone. This really is a war. Let’s make some serious dents in our opponents’ effectiveness online and have tales of courage, stamina, and strength to share with our progeny.
Truthfilled. Respectful. Relentless. We can make the difference.
Thank you for joining our team.
