LDS Church Further Clarifies Its Role in Prop 8

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following article today on their newsroom site:

Media Reports on Proposition 8 Filing Uninformed

The article is fairly brief but very comprehensive. If anyone still doubts the Church’s financial role in Prop 8, they are just willfully rebelling against the truth. The Church was always very open about its role, they never tried to hide any part of their involvement in Prop 8. LDS Church members were encouraged to vote in the election and to vote in defense of traditional marriage but no one was ever forced to vote a particular way. The LDS Church became involved in the issue because it is an important and fundamental moral issue. Marriage and family are the foundation of society. Redefining marriage to include same-sex couples is a radical shift that could have unintended negative consequences on society for generations. It is an attack on the sacred bond of marriage and family.

  1. The LDS Church is not anti-gay or anti-any other group; the Church is FOR traditional marriage, believing that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained by God and should not be redefined by any group. Supporting Prop 8 and encouraging its members to do so was entirely appropriate for the Church. The votes were cast, and the people of California – and not just those who are LDS – have spoken on the matter. There is nothing more American than that. What is UN-American is the hateful and vindictive response by some to not getting their own way.

  2. Thanks for your nice comment and thanks for visiting my blog. Your comment was right on target.
