So, like what... scrapbook? angrily do a bunch of genealogy?
No offense to the Mormon RJ'ers (does such a unicorn exist?), but the intimidation tactic of a bunch of friendly, clean, wholesome families sternly telling me how to live my life is about as threatening as a baby dressed up like Dracula. Sure, Dracula is scary, but it's baby dracula.
That is pretty funny! You should be warned that Mormons can handle a hole-punch with deadly precision! And only the cursed survive long enough to see the stickers and glitter come out.
Another Mormon-raised Realjocker here. In fact, I was a missionary in California and know the Mormon mentality there relatively well. Here's another perspective for consideration: There really is a noble and pure-hearted motivation behind the cause, no matter how ignorant or offensive it may seem. There will be a lot of Mormons in Cali with gay friends and family who will sincerely say to their loved ones, "It's not personal." And it likely won't be. It's mostly rooted in a doctrinal obligation to do what they can for the salvation of others (both born or unborn). With their emphasis on the family unit as being central to God's plan, the idea that a same-sex couple would be recognized by the government (insinuating to impressionable souls that the practice is acceptable), or that such recognition would undoubtedly lead to more children being born (or adopted/invitro'd/immaculately conceived) into gay homes, is hugely threatening. Keep in mind that the ultimate goal/reward in God's plan (as understood in Mormonism) is happiness in this life and the next, which can only come from adherence to God's guidance. SO...*inhale*... It's not believed that it is an attack on gays, but a consideration of the broader picture of the eternities and trying to make "happiness" an option for as many as possible and prevent the loss of souls in the long-term. So when your Mormon friends tell you that it's not personal, for them it's not. It's just a fine example of how someone can learn to hate the sin, but love the sinner... even when it seems like warfare. It's sorta similar to some native spiritual practices where prayers and rites are performed when they've killed an animal and are about to eat its brains... they respect the animal, hold no animosity toward it, but the bloodshed is deemed necessary... Clearly there will be no bloodshed or eating of brains with the Mormons, but respect and aggression can exist simultaneously.
[... ooooh.... I've kind of opened a can of worms with that last analogy, understanding that it could be applied to a Jihad or holocaust in it's most fanatical application. That's the spectrum of religion's potential to intersect with the rights, beliefs and lives of others, I suppose.]
Clearly, I can't agree with the call to action, but I can understand where it comes from and why it'll be pursued with a good degree of passion... And I can't help but acknowledge that they believe they're doing it FOR us, not TO us.
So we've covered glitter, God, brain eating and Jihad. I think I've done enough here.
