NYTimes Editorial Board Endorses Prop. 8 Mormon-Financing Investigation

The New York Times voiced its support for an investigation by The California Fair Political Practices Commission into whether or not the Mormon Church illegally contributed funds to the Prop. 8 campaign, saying “Churches, which risk their tax-exempt status if they endorse candidates, have more leeway in referendum campaigns. Still, when they enter the political fray, they have the same obligation to follow the rules that nonreligious groups do.” [NYT]

      Other religious groups have been investigated for less. Al Sharpton was investigated and fined, as I remember, for voter registration drives. The only reason why there is even a question mark of whether the Mormon Church should be investigated here is the politics, and not legal issue. The letter the Church sent out to its members alone places a big question mark on the legality of what the Church organized.

      Let the countdown begin for the Fox News crew to start the War on Christmas! featuring the persecution of “people of faith” by the “intolerant” queers and left-wing media. The NY “Times” will be pilloried for this first salvo!

      I am glad NYT has finally admitted that gay rights are “the good fight”. Not too long ago (1980’s) they would not publish the word “Homosexual” in their newspaper unless it was related to a public figure scandal.

      I’m an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and wish that the media and others would have a better understanding of the Church. There are so many misunderstandings and no matter what we’d say, you’d still find fought and continue to listen to lies. The world in Christ time rejected Him and his living apostles. I guess when people do not live the commandments of God and turn away from God, then they must attack something which stands for right. If marriage between man and woman is not protected, then we invite the judgments of God. I believe the Bible is enough of a warning to us to choose righteousness or suffer the consequence of the judgments of God.
