Obviously, I've been against Prop. 8 since its inception. It's a no-brainer that it's discriminatory, and, I think, illegal and unconstitutional. It's also no secret that the Mormon Church has contributed many tens of millions of dollars in support of the prop., which would reverse the right for gay marriage in California.
Firstly, could that money, especially from a church, perhaps been better spent feeding the hungry? Maybe like Jesus would have done? Silly question, I know.
Secondly, Mormons have a pretty damn insidious record with marriage, girlfriends. What if I commandeered a proposition saying Mormonism should be outlawed? Nah. Live and let live, I say.
But isn't it ironic that my husband, Jon (who's a recovering Mormon), and I picketed some Mormon churches this weekend—he put the pics up on Facebook—and next thing you know, a member of the most famous Mormon family of them all, the Osmonds, contacted Jon and said right on, complaining about how intolerant her own clan is?
This, while on the official family Osmond blog, it's clearly stated to vote yes on Prop 8. Just goes to show, don't believe everything you read.
