Given their history, Mormons know about being targeted for being different. Yet in a full-on offensive, the LDS Church mobilized in favor of California's Prop 8, a ballot initiative that bans gay marriage.
Prop 8 was not your typical "amendment" that merely tinkers with the California Constitution. It was a drastic revision that deprives a "suspect class" (gays and lesbians) of a fundamental right under equal protection.
Does the voting public of this great state of California, who correctly voted to pass Proposition 2 -- which legislated to give caged chickens more room in their cages -- have to actually see the cage that gay people have been put in all theses years to get it?
Black support for the Calif. anti-gay-marriage proposition is higher than support among any other ethnic group, which is ironic, considering that precedence in the case is the end of the ban on interracial marriage.
