Targeting Prop 8 supporters

It is obvious that the fight for/against gay marriage is a very heated and passionate one.  Church’s are spending a lot of time and resources to support the initiative.  My church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is supporting Proposition 8 (and Prop. 102 in Arizona) and has encouraged their voters to get out and vote.  That being said, the church is not involved in politics with its funding; nor does it use its meeting houses for anything political.

That being said, the Daily Kos and other anti-Prop. 8 people are pulling out their typical antics of personal destruction.  They are targeting individual donors that support the campaign.  Disgusting, dangerous, awful…but typical!

From the Daily Kos (http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2008/10/20/01429/971). 

“Now, I have nothing personally against the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  . .

But when the church and its members invest millions of dollars in an attempt to write discrimination into my state’s constitution and divorce my friend Brian against his will, there will be hell to pay.

So what am I asking you to do?

Some distributed research.

There is a list of a bunch of Mormon donors to the Yes on Proposition 8 campaign (in case that one goes  down, here’s a mirror with slightly worse formatting.

Here’s what I’m asking for:

This list contains information about those who are big donors to the Yes on 8 campaign—donors to the tune of at least $1,000 dollars. And, as you can see, there are a lot of them.  It also indicates if they’re Mormon or not.

If you’re interested in defeating the religious right and preserving marriage equality, here’s how you can help:

Find us some ammo.”

  1. I find it interesting that the very people who demand tolerance and acceptance are dishing out intolerance and condemnation. That’s not the way to make friends in communities they seek acceptance from.

    However, on the flipside, isn’t it great that the interfaith coalition is supporting us and standing with us even when we’re obviously the unpopular target?

    Los Angeles interfaith leaders voiced their support for the LDS church this afternoon, saying: “The peaceful faiths, families, educators, activists, and community servants who make up the protect Marriage Coalition are saddened to hear of the continued targeted attacks on the Mormon people during and after the conclusion of this fair and certified election. Like many churches, the family is the anchor of the LDS faith and it is no surprise that its members in California joined other faiths in giving everything they had to Proposition 8.“
