The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has mobilized followers to give an estimated 77% of donations to support California's proposed marriage ban.
Californians Against Hate released figures Tuesday showing that $17.67 million was contributed by 59,000 Mormon families since August to groups like Yes on 8. Contributions in support of Prop. 8 total $22.88 million.
Because of that support, the bigot side has much more money than the No on 8 side has.
But that hasn't stopped some of their supporters from striking back .With this ultimate home invasion ad.
You know I don't judge people for what they believe. Even though I don't believe it myself. Just for how they treat others.
So I was really glad to read about this rally by some Mormon mothers.
One rally that did surprise the country -- and the organizers -- was a quiet vigil against Prop 8 in Salt Lake City, Utah. More than 600 people showed up at Salt Lake City's Library Square heeding a call from three Mormon mothers of gay children.
"I am so touched that you would be here," said a tearful Millie Watts, the mother of six who organized the vigil......This is what happens when people in California say mean things about our gay kids. The mothers come out of the closet."
And why I like this last humble ad that our side was able to fire off today.
Because that's what it's all about.
Gay people are fighting for their lives and their families.
Proposition 8 is nothing more than the cruelest and most foul kind of discrimination.
And the bigots must not win....
