Just because not everything can work properly, despite Democrats taking the House, the Senate and the Presidency, Proposition 8 went through in California meaning that gay marriage has actually been banned there. A large portion of campaign finances on the Pro-Prop 8 side came indirectly from the Mormon Church – even though they’re based in Utah and the legislation doesn’t technically affect them at all, except for their unwavering panic about the sanctity of marriage while they engage in polygamy of course. Polygamy, yes, and Owen Hawk told me that incest is really common among Mormon families – not surprisingly. Here’s the money quote:

"We hope that everyone would treat [each other] that way (with civility) no matter which side of this issue they were on," said Elder L. Whitney Clayton, of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' Presidency of the Seventy.

What a shining example of the delusion of organized religion. After all, civility has always been the watchword in a campaign designed entirely to prevent people in another state from attaining civil rights. Now that sections of the Californian population have been marginalized through legislation, it’s apparently time to start being civil and nice. It’s always reasonable to be calm and nice no matter what. [source]

I'm still stunned by the audacity of the Mormons. "This is not the place!" Keep your hate in SLC.
