1997 Mormon Memo on Anti-Gay Strategy

Posted on 16 November 2008 by admin

The Box Turtle Bulletin has posted:

An eleven year old internal LDS memo has emerged which proves that the Mormon church has been plotting against same-sex marriage for more than a decade. The memo, dated March 4, 1997, provides insight into the late LDS President Gordon B. Hinckley’s strategy for opposing same-sex marriage. It describes a meeting in which Hinckley gives the go ahead, but urged caution. According to the memo, “he (President Hinckley) also said the (LDS) Church should be in a coalition and not out front by itself.”

Well, Mormons, I guess it didn’t work out so well for you to be in the background (after the fact at least).  I don’t understand why you object to the gay community giving credit where credit is due!  See the Box Turtle post here or read the actual memo here.

    Our only problem is religion, you can solve it by disolving your ancient mythology and irrationality and joining the modern world that deals with reality as it is, not as you wish it to be. End Religion today… Need Help?
    Listen to FREETHOUGHTRADIO.COM and study…

    I love how they say they are pro family, pro any family but the gay family.

Targeting Mormons Unfair?

Equality California estimates that Mormons donated as much as $20 million to Prop. 8, while the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal group, gave $1.25 million to the effort and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, $200,000.
