Ale Mary's is enjoying the scads of free publicity garnered from a Fabebook protest against their bar's "blasphemy" (see earlier post).
Meanwhile, another Facebook group has sprung up in direct opposition to the first one, "500,000 Supporting Free Speech & "Ale Mary's"
I will not recommend the disingenuous tactic openly used and espoused by the original protest group: "Help push this thing over 1000! Invite all of your friends whether they like it or not." But I trust this blog's readers to take appropriate action as they see fit. (When openly questioned, several times, about potential membership inflation via this tactic, the anti-Ale-Mary's group's moderator repeatedly deleted the questions from this blogger and then ejected this blogger from membership.)
UPDATE: Fox 45 Baltimore's TV news story has supposedly been picked up as incidental (i.e. what else is happening elsewhere) news on Fox station newscasts as far away as Miami.......
UPDATE II: Baltimore Sun's Jill Rosen reports.
