    The Mormon Church has been plotting since 1997 to push a referendum in California to make same-sex marriage illegal.

    The most visible supporters of Prop 8 who would take away our rights in the commercials that have aired are Mormons -- law professor Richard Peterson of Pepperdine's law school and Robb and Robin Wirthlin -- the Massachusetts couple who complain about their 2nd grader being taught about same sex marriage in Massachusetts schools.

    What the Wirthlins don't tell you is that they were involved in anti-gay marriage efforts long before their child began elementary school. And Richard Peterson, law professor?!! His JD is from an unaccredited law school, so while he can teach law here in CA, he would not be eligible to sit for the bar exam in any other state in the country. Don't you wonder why -- with all the better law schools in this state (USC, UCLA, Boalt Hall) -- that he's the best they could get?!!

    This has been a concerted effort by the Mormons for a long time. They've joined with other churches to make this more palatable to the California electorate. They've essentially turned their church into a political action committee in terms of assigning people to make phone calls and pressuring their membership for donations in support of Prop 8.

    Say no on 8 and don't let the Mormons have their way in California!!!

    Not surprising. That church is full of homophobes. Although I would like to bend a couple of their missionaries over my couch ....
