Tonight, Mormons were encouraged to support Prop. 8 in California.
“‘The issue for us is what will children be taught in school about marriage…What does it mean if homosexual and heterosexual relationships are treated as the same?’ L. Whitney Clayton, a member of the LDS Presidency of the Seventy, said in an interview. ‘Freedom of religion is at risk’ because children will be forced hear views that contradict Mormon teachings.”
Children are already “forced” to hear views that contradict Mormon teachings. Every day. Lame argument. FAIL.
Here’s the story in the LDS Church owned paper.
A church can lobby. I just don’t want them exempt from paying taxes if they choose to support legislated bigotry.
