Mormon Mail Call Comes With 27,000 Letters from HRC

“The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) delivered 27,000 letters to LDS Church headquarters Monday – all of them asking the Mormon leader to support legal protections for gay and transgender Utahns. The national gay-rights group has endorsed Equality Utah’s Common Ground Initiative, a collection of bills that would, among other things, provide rights to fair housing and employment for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Utahns and domestic-partner benefits for same-sex couples. The movement was born in response to statements the LDS Church that the church “does not object to rights for same-sex couples regarding hospitalization and medical care, fair housing and employment rights or probate rights.” [Salt Lake Tribune]

    The LDS is giving us more than the Federal Government… now THAT’S sad.

    They are not giving us anything. They tried to say they would support our rights as gays, for everything but marriage. But when it came time to put up or shut up, they of course do nothing. It adds to the rest of the lies they told during the prop 8 vote. They said, oh no, we want you to have limited rights, now they don’t allow that either.

    Christianity = The Belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh, and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.

    I know that they didn’t REALLY give us anything… they don’t have the power to give us anything — well… they alone don’t have the power to give us anything.

    It saddens me, though — that while they’ll at least pretend… the federal government won’t.

    Saddens me and outrages me.

    And you TOTALLY forgot that the Mormons are the ones with the seven golden tablets and the magical underwear, too — you could have SO made your rant ten times better by including that!
