For now, you should know that we have two fabulous raffle items from the Chicago Bears Organization (and a huge THANK YOU to the Bears for supporting our message).That, however, is a lie. The Bears completely disavowed the claim in a statement:
The two items featured in The Ruth Institute gala invitation were personal donations to Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse. Neither was a club donation, nor do they represent the team’s view on any social issues. Any remarks stating otherwise are false.Additionally, the former player who had autographed one of the items said that "if I would have known it was for this cause, I wouldn’t have done it."
So if you're attending NOM's upcoming hate conference, you have the chance to win exciting memorabilia of a team and player that want to have nothing to with the group conducting the raffle. Lucky you! Isn't it cool to be a bigot?
