BYU Student Newspaper Talks Prop 8

Posted on 13 December 2008 by admin

BYU NewsNet, the BYU campus newspaper, did a story on December 10th that frankly talks about the energy around Prop 8 on campus before the election. The reporter also reviews the infamous “Six Consequences” document and scratches the surface of the claims, including the top line pro and con arguments against them.

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.

Vandalism of LDS Church, Suicidal Man at Temple

Farmington LDS chapel vandalized

Farmington LDS chapel vandalized

There were a couple of stories that caught my attention today in Utah.  One was a minor act of vandalism to a Mormon church that could be investigated as a hate crime.  In the other, a suicidal man was found in front of an LDS temple.

The vandilism case seems clearly related to Prop 8.  The words, “Nobody’s born a bigot” followed by a heart and smiley face were found spray-painted on a cement wall outside chapel.  The vandalism was reported on Wednesday, and police are investigating it as a possible hate crime.

Park City Record Editorial on Prop 8

Posted on 18 November 2008 by admin

Editorial from the Park City Record:

On Nov. 4, Americans throughout the land celebrated a momentous civil rights triumph — the election of the nation’s first African-American president. The positive impact of the election is still reverberating, not only across this country, but around the world. People of every race, religion, gender and political persuasion see it as a universal sign that inequality and prejudice will soon be relegated to unhappy chapters in our history books.

Atheist Missionaries in Salt Lake City

Posted on 14 November 2008 by admin

I thought that I’d post a little fun distraction from all the Prop 8 talk while remaining on-topic of Mormons. Actually, this is a good example to show how they feel when others try to push beliefs on them.

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.
