    The advocates of gay marriage simply want a scapegoat to blame for their loss in California. Why do they protest the LDS Church and not protest in black areas in california? Are they afraid for their safety in some black areas in California and its much safer to protest in from of a LDS Temple?

    They protest the money that individual members donated to prop 8 as if money was the factor that decided the result. If that where true than Prop 8 would have failed since more money was spent by the opponents of prop 8 than those that support it. The money donations by LDS members is a red herring.

    My only criticism of the LDS Church involvement in the Prop 8 is not that they had a right to encourage members in encouraging the passage of Prop 8 but that the need was probably completely unnecessary. How many times has the gay marriage issue come up in elections and gay marriage has been rejected by voters? What happened in the 2004 elections. Fox News in 2004 reported

    “The amendments won, often by huge margins, in Arkansas (search), Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Ohio, Utah and Oregon — the one state where gay-rights activists hoped to prevail. The bans won by a 3-to-1 margin in Kentucky, Georgia and Arkansas, 3-to-2 in Ohio, and 6-to-1 in Mississippi.”

    Outside of Utah, can one say that LDS played an important role in gay marriage being defeated? Of course not because Gay Marriage is simply not popular. The general population rejects it and I have enough confidence in the people of California on this issue that they would have rejected it as well without any LDS Church encouragement. Prop 8 won by about 500000 votes. THis suggests that even if every LDS voter in California did not even vote on Nov 4th that Prop 8 STILL would have passed.

    Get over it gay marriage supporters. You lost because the majority of the population does not support your cause. Gay marriage is a farce. It’s no more of a legitimate marriage than a circle is a legitimate square. Work for domestic partnerships or civil unions but stop trying to equate “gay marriage” to real marriage. The population just will not be fooled you your nonsense

  1. Oh hai. Get your own blog.

    Yeah um, dood. Ever heard of the ERA? LDS had major influence. Singlehandedly responsible for Idaho recinding their ratification, major influence in Virginia.

    How about the massive donations opposing gay marriage in Alaska and Hawaii? Fundraising calls in California

    Furthermore, in 2004, the margin was 62%. In 2008 the margin was 52%.

    Aw hell, I give up. Ur faith in ur wingnut idealz iz amoozing an futil.

    mormon mt meadows massacre
    Professor Gene Sessions, a Mormon, historian and authority on the massacre has concluded:

    “… some 50 Mormons taking orders from local ecclesiastical leaders actually went out and tricked these 120 people out of their encampment with a white flag and then proceeded to murder them in cold blood with the exception of 17 small children. …

    “It’s an awful story, you can’t put a smilie face on it. This was cold-blooded murder of innocent people. Occasionally someone will come up to me and say, ‘Well don’t you think they deserved it?’ And, no I don’t think they deserved it. I don’t care how many of the stories you believe about whatever the immigrants did to get killed, nothing they did came anywhere close to justifying the murder of little children and the oldest child saved was six-years and 11 months old. Everyone older than that was murdered. In fact most of the murdered people were women and children. So there’s no justification. Even if you wanted to make some justification for killing the men, it breaks down pretty fast. It’s just- there’s no justification for the murder of these people. …”

  2. Dude, do you read? I know my Mormon history. I crack misspelled cat jokes about it.

    This belongs in an email.

    You are not in the BYU Faculty/Staff directory.
