Yes, we realize that the Church of the Latter Day Saints isn’t an individual, but if it wasn’t for its collective villainy, Proposition 8 might have died on the vine. In 2008, the Church actively encouraged its followers to contribute time and money to promote the anti-marriage measure, going so far as to run television ads in its Utah base market to encourage its followers to get involved. All told, Mormons contributed $20 million to the Prop. 8 campaign, or roughly half of all the money raised. The Church has since gone largely silent in marriage equality battles, but it has already done enough damage to last a lifetime.
