Elton John and Civil Unions vs. Gay Marriage

Posted on 15 November 2008 by admin

I just got an email from my mother saying that Elton John comments from USA Today are being circulated among her Mormon friends.  Looks like the Yes on 8 campaign is using them to try to raise more money.

Of course, I wish he hadn’t said such things.  My guess is that these were a few off the cuff remarks on the red carpet and they do not fully explain where he stands.  Further speculating, I’m thinking he’s one of our gays who finds it undignified to aspire to or assimilate with anything hetero.

Bluff Called by Equality Utah: Church Responds

Posted on 14 November 2008 by admin

You might have heard about the brilliant move by Equality Utah, asking the Mormon church to stand by the statements they made during the campaign about not objecting to civil unions and such.  They asked the Mormons for their support on 5 bills to be put forward in the Utah legislature.  The New York Times, among many others, wrote about it a few days ago.

BUT THIS JUST IN: After days of “no comment”, it looks like the Washington Post got a tidbit from a Mormon church spokesperson at the end of this article.

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.
