THE ADVOCATE ASKS: Does the organizational and fund-raising prowess displayed by the LDS church during California’s Proposition 8 campaign augur future political might?

In june the governing body of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sent a letter to every Mormon congregation in California asking that a message be read to members at Sunday services stating that “marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God,” and “local church leaders will provide information about how you may become involved in this important cause.” The cause was Proposition 8, and church members were implored to “do all you can to support the proposed constitutional amendment by donating of your means and time.”

Prop 8 is PR Fiasco for Mormons, Romney

Posted on 21 November 2008 by admin

The Salt Lake Tribune reported today on the fallout for the Mormon church from Prop 8 and ramifications for the political aspirations of high profile Mormon, former Massachusetts Governor, and Presidential contender Mitt Romney.

One article talks with Gregory and JaLynn Prince, LDS church members in Washington, D.C.  Even there, they have felt the backlash from the Mormon involvement in Proposition 8.  Their daughter, a Boston University student, has lost friends, while their son, an LDS missionary, has found it more difficult to spread the Mormon gospel.

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.
