LDS Church – Article of Faith # 11. “We claim the privilege to worship almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, we grant all people the same privilege, let them worship how where or what they may.”  So all you churches out there wanting to supporting the GLBT community and perform marriages and committment ceremonies, I guess you don’t qualify as part of “all people” in the eyes of the LDS Church.  Or is the church giving us some sort of moral double talk?

There were a lot of people who joined the national group marching and protesting the passage of Proposition 8.  While the protest had little to do with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons) News personal and anti-gay protesters focused on the disappointment that the gay community in the Mormon Church’s involvement and urging their members to support the passage of Prop 8. Naturally there was quite a stir  locally that has cause a lot of discussion about should the Church have done that and is that within their scope as a non profit.  We discussed that in an earlier post so in this one I will mostly try to show some images from the protest rally.  I hope you enjoy.

Election night was a bitter-sweet celebration. We are witnessing history in the making with the first black man who will become our president.  We also grieved as Florida, Arizona, Arkansas, and California all voted down equal rights for all citizens.

This is not a 4 state issue. This is an issue of equality across America. Stand up and make your voice heard. A group, www.jointheimpact.com, is organizing a nationwide rally to protest the vote.  To participate, visit www.jointheimpact.wetpaint.com to find out where the protest takes place in your state.

Protest Organizers: Find your city’s page and fill out info about where, when, and other exciting details. Learn how to get the word out!

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! Now is your chance to be a “community organizer”! We need 3 or 4 dedicated volunteers in each town to contact the clubs and organizations in your area and to print/distribute flyers to get a turnout in your town.

For Gay Mormons or Gay Christians visit www.gaysandthegospel.org to find scriptural reasons why Mormons should be opposed to Proposition 8.
