Radio West: Responding to Prop 8

(This is an interesting look into the Mormon Church's financial role in funding manipulative ads in support of Prop 8 and their "shock" at the reaction of protestors when Prop 8 passed.)

Responding to Prop 8
Radio West (Public Radio International/KUER: Utah State University)

Organizers expected more than 3,000 people to attend Saturday's Salt Lake City demonstration protesting the passage of California's ban on same-sex marriage. These are peaceful events - but stories of sign burnings, church defacement and potentially hazardous mailings have supporters of Proposition 8 on the defensive. Monday on RadioWest, we're talking about the reaction from the GLBT community. Do the protests invoke earlier civil rights struggles and how is this activism being understood by their LDS neighbors?

Some of us have HAD IT! We will be responding with a NON-Violent Solution: The NATIONAL EQUALITY TAX PROTEST will be on Wednesday, April 15th, 2009.

Individuals are FINALLY gathering to TAKE A STAND against persecution from the Mormons & the Christian "Right". No vote will be needed on this one, folks.

EQUALITY is SIMPLE when you simply include EVERYONE.
