California Fair Political Practices Commission to Investigate Mormon Church

Fred Karger, founder of Californians Against Hate, has received word that the complaint he filed against the Church of Latter Day Saints will be investigated by the California Political Practices Commission. The complaint charges that the LDS failed to report numerous non-monetary contributions including organized phone banks from Utah and Idaho, direct mail to voters, transportation of people to California over several weekends, use of the LDS NewsRoom to send out News Releases to promote their activities, among other things.

    Whoo-hoo! Finally, something HAPPENING in the wake of Prop 8. Don’t get me wrong, marching is great, but legal action is needed to stop these kinds of abuses from happening in the future.

    Several months ago while at LDS Church services,our bishop came in and interrupted relief society class to ask for volunteers to make phone calls to California to convince persons to vote against proposition 8. I personally thought this a gross violation of our constitutional rights of separation of church and state. I am not gay , but have friends who are, and I believe we should all have equal rights. It is not for me to judge or for the government to judge. Our maker is the only one who can and I know that HE/SHE loves us all unconditionally.
