Notes:
 
Slide 1: Gay Marriage - Prop H8 Whitney Wagner – gaytravel.com staff The other night I had the opportunity to go see a free screening of “8: The Mormon Proposition”, a documentary critics are calling one of the most emotional and well-crafted documentaries of the last decade. The film exposes the Mormon Church's involvement in the passage of California's Proposition 8 and the Latter-Day Saints’ active participation in the campaign against equal rights of homosexuals. Within the first 2 minutes of the film you are introduced to Spencer and Tyler, an endearing gay couple who share their story of becoming one of the first couples to get married in California in 2008. You quickly learn that both are Mormons who have had to overcome their family, society, and even themselves to become the couple they are today. Spencer and Tyler’s fairytale came to a storming halt November 4th 2009 when their rights were stripped from them due to the passing of proposition H8. How could California residents let this happen? “8: The Mormon Proposition” lets viewers find out exactly how it happened and who’s behind it… the LDS. The documentary features California and Utah Mormons following their prophet’s call to action. You see them wage religious warfare and spread misinformation against LGBT citizens. The film details the involvement of the Mormon Church and its strong connection to this political campaign. Over 1,500 documents are provided as evidence in the Mormon Church’s involvement with the Yes on 8 Campaign. By creating the political front group – The National Organization for Marriage, the Mormon Church has been able to lead the effort to stop marriage equality for the past three decades. Worse still, the Mormon Church has been able to wage this war in secret using other religious and other private organizations as their puppets. As a follower of the LDS, you are led to believe that prophets are the highest authority (other than God) and at times will speak on God’s behalf. Thus, LDS prophets spoke to their followers telling them, “the battle to obtain institutional marriage is a battle that must be won”. In response, LDS members began sending in money and donating their time to spread the word of their campaign. The Mormon population represents 3% of California residents, but they donated 71% of the money that went into the campaign. With these hundreds of millions of dollars they made commercials, recruited and trained young college students to preach to friends (missionaries were told to ditch their white collar shirts, black ties, and nametags so they would not be seen as associated with the LDS) and even used young children in commercials as propaganda without parental consent. The movie takes a shocking look at the Mormon way of doing business against the LGBT community.
Slide 2: By the end of the film I felt anger, disgust and embarrassment in all of the above. I wanted to run out and go tell these narrow-minded zealots to go suck it. After the showing the audience was surprised by Tyler’s parents, Linda and Steve Stay, who led a Q&A session. One of the first questions someone asked was “how will your family respond to this?” As she started to cry Linda explained that she was separated from her family and had not communicated with them for almost a year. She explained how her father said she and her family will be “in the darkness of hell for all eternity.” As the audience sees her pain a viewer yells out “Hey, you won’t be in the darkness with us… we’ve got all the colors of the rainbow.” The documentary is extremely educational and a must see for those who are unclear how the LDS blurred the lines between separation of church and state. Only a few days ago the LDS church was found guilty on 13 Counts of Malfeasance in relation to the Prop 8 campaign and was fined by the California Fair Political Practices Commission.
