[The Gays March On] Looks like the second state to jump on the pro-gay-marriage bandwagon will be California, now that its supreme court has ruled its anti-marriage amendment unconstitutional.
Which means it also looks like all those nontaxable dollars the LDS Church pumped into the Proposition 22 campaign were wasted. Your tithing dollars at work: It must have been such a faith-building experience to have scrimped, saved, sacrificed and denied your family 10 percent of your income so that gays in California could be oppressed for, oh, about 8 years.
Way to go, faithful tithing payers! Maybe you'll be able to do it all over again this year now that the wingnuts are gearing up for yet another futile battle. Careful, though--most of them are evangelicals and you know they don't like the Mormons one bit better than they like the gays.
Another thing for the membership to think about as their money gets spent by wiser and more powerful people than them: Civil marriage for gays has absolutely no effect on LDS temple marriages, which will continue to be restricted to opposite-sex couples for as long as the church cares to do so. And that's just fine with us. (Brandon Burt)
