Prop 8 Rally At Mormon Temple in Los Angeles Nov. 6th

The Mormon Temple is responsible for spreading misinformation which has resulted in over 20 million dollars of donations to proposition 8 in California. A call has been issued to march on the Mormon Temple at 10777 Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles at 2pm Thursday November 6th. Bring your signs and video cameras.

I have just deleted a violent and homophobic comment placed here. No such comments will be tolerated from either side.

I just wanted to say that I am a straight woman and I fully believe in EQUAL rights for gay couples including the title of marriage. I hope you all attain the respect you deserve and I am sincerely sorry for the ignorance that straight people have demonstrated in California this past few months and especially on November 4th. I am a college graduate from UCSD in biology and also raised catholic. I truly believe that the people judging you will be judged in the end and they will finally know that they were wrong. Stay strong. They can live with the hate in their hearts and God knows it very well.

1- The mormon church did not pay a cent to pass the proposition. The money was raised from donors (a good number who were mormon)

2. Democracy is about the voice of the people. Don't cry because you lost, work on changing the voice of the people.

3. Marriage isn't a right. No one is impeding on relationships or even seeking to dismantle Civil Unions, which provide most of the exact same rights as marriage (at least in California)

4. Everyone is jumping to the conclusion as to why religions went for this proposition, but noone is actually discussing the issue with them. This shows complete ignorance on the side of the homosexual community, and hurts not helps their cause. Following Ghandi's example might help you more than following a communistic approach.

5. Discrimination laws are at the core of the problem. The situation in Massachusettes between separation of church and state through discrimination laws has pushed religions to react to this. Maybe seek to ensure that descrimination laws can't be used against bishops/priests/etc.. who do not want to marry gay couples, violating their own moral beliefs.

6. When I read the information posted on here, I'm surprised that any of you can accuse the Mormons of bigotry. The majority of these comments are bigoted against the Mormons.

7. Let people disagree with you without ramming bigotry down their throats. Silencing the opposition only strengthens the opposition's resolve.

Queers, you don't scare us with your threats and protests. You only fuel our fire to fight for what believe is right. Think of another tactic because this sure isn't working. We have seen more good come from this than bad. TRUST ME..lol

My dad pointed out that the Yes on 8 ads did a very good job about not making it about gay people but making it seem that other people's rights would be taken away, for example the right for churches to refuse to marry gay couples. We know that is not true but I feel targeting one particular religion for protests is really dangerous and leads to more fear. "Look: they do want us to have to change our church." The truth is religious groups do have the right to their views, even the offensive ones. Those views shouldn't become laws though. I just don't see how protesting outside the Mormon Temple is at all helpful. It seems petty and mean and certainly won't gain any sympathy. And that's what we're gonna need. We need people who are a little unsure and not crazy about the idea of homosexuality to realize they have nothing to be afraid of; that letting gay people marry won't affect their life AT ALL. Martin Luther King's strategy was rooted in awakening the sympathy of the majority to the suffering/discrimination of a minority. Let's keep this a legal issue. Protest in public places but not at people's place of worship.

Just so you know, wikipedia says:

Religious organizations that supported Proposition 8 include the Roman Catholic Church, Knights of Columbus, Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church, California's largest, also endorsed the measure. The Bishops of the California Catholic Conference released a statement supporting the proposition.

Lets see some protests at cathedrals and synagogues..

Those of you who think the LDS church had that much influence over Proposition 8 need to grow up!

The LDS Church's California membership population is only 2% of California's total population. And of that 2%, less than half are old enough to vote. And of those old enough to vote, not all of them did. And of those who did, not all voted against Propostion 8.

You are angry because someone else exercised their right to vote for something they beleived it...just as many of you did.

Your criticism of the LDS church is bigoted at worst and hypocritical at best.

No one has said you don't have the right to protest or boycott anything. Just be sure you know what you are talking about. Hypocrisy spews from the ignorant.

Spend your money in Utah? What kind of lame comment is that? Tourism dollars are crucial to California's economy and given the state of yours, I'm sure your local government disagrees with your attitude.

The Mormon Church has a huge Christmas Devotional on December 7, 2008, at 6:00 p.m. MST. That is where we should protest! Bring it to their homes, their pageants and they will rue the day.
