I wonder why there wasn't similar backlash in the Catholic church?
It seems to me the Mormons are just trying to put out the fire that they started. If they want to believe homosexuality is wrong and impose restrictions within their own boundaries, fine. But try to impose that on society at large, and they will face a backlash here in America and in Europe. The majority of us do not tolerate theocracy here. We like freedom better.
What a bunch of hypocrites the Mormon Church is proving to be (i'm SHOCKED, I tell you). They've declared war on equal rights for gay tax-paying citizens.
If there is a hell, church leaders are filling that place faster than Satan can have his minions dig a deeper hole.
They bankrolled Prop. 8 and now want the gay and lesbian's to fund their "church!" Tithing 10% to an organization who funds Propositions to take the equal rights away. No way.
The Mormon Church formed a coalition with the Catholic Church to fight Prop. 8 in California. The Mormon Church, with its front-group THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR MARRIAGE, has been coordinating, financing and leading the effort to stop the advancement of marriage equality for more than three decades. As an organization worth hundreds of billions of dollars, the Mormon Church has been able to wage this war in secret. Not until the California Fair Political Practices Commission launched an investigation into the Mormon's involvement in Proposition 8, did the secrets of the Mormon effort become a matter of record.
