The Mormon Church Claims to be the Victim of Prop 8. Really?

“And when did the LDS Church become the victim? Is this the same church that conducted a national broadcast to Mormon chapels calling on members to organize and write checks to the Prop 8 campaign? The same church that donated more than half of the $40 million behind Prop 8, even though California Mormons represent just two percent of the state’s population? As someone who was raised in the Mormon Church and fulfilled my two-year missionary assignment overseas, I know something about LDS teachings. And I know that God’s view on homosexuality as expressed by Mormon prophets and leaders has changed so many times that the Church has little credibility in this area.” —Bruce Bastian, WordPerfect co-founder, philanthropist, and member of the Human Rights Campaign’s board of directors [HP via HRC]
