Why are Mormons acting ashamed?

Because the LDS Church is being investigated by the California Fair Elections Commission because there is evidence it may have broken the law by “substantially” lobbying for political legislation and failing to report campaign-related expenses.

The Yes on Prop 8 campaign, by the way, wants to change the laws that require all donors to make public their names/addresses, claiming that it’s unfair that people should know who these donors are. While the splashy side of this story has been the donors who find that their businesses are boycotted by customers who don’t like their bigotry, the silent, tactical side is this: it’ll make it a lot harder to show, next time, that the LDS Church is breaking the law.

American News Project:


  1. I’m sure someday they’ll complain when some lefty “Right to Privacy” group wants to make it harder for them to harass us about something in a few years.

  2. I’m actually a bit surprised that required/published donor information includes a person’s address. But it seems reasonable enough that you don’t have a right to privacy about your donations.

  3. Coward! Btw, why do you get to make fun of the gay agenda and I don’t? (pearl diver)

    Hey, I’m stuck with an iPhone until tomorrow- that “research” they reference, did they compare 2 parent Herero households to 1parent households, or did they compare 2 parent gay to 2 parent Hetero? I want to be scathing but who can do research on this thing?

    Aw! Pearl Diver doesn’t have a sense of humor about the Gay Agenda.

    As for the research – well, it’s reported on FauxNews, so who knows? But it’s reported simply as “A total of 320 children, from four public schools and two faith-based schools, completed six different questionnaires to rate their happiness, their spirituality, their religiousness and their temperament. Parents were also asked to rate their child’s happiness and temperament.” They don’t mention how many of the children came from single parent households and how many were parented by same-sex couples. There’s a further report on Science Daily.
