Bottom Line

I have been holding off saying anything on this issue for a couple of reasons. This is a family blog and not a political one. And some things really are better left ignored.

Well, I am going to throw in our 2 cents on the passing of proposition 8 in California.

Knock off blaming the LDS church. The Mormon church was not the only religious institution to support proposition 8. The Catholic church did. Jews did. Evangelical and many fundamentalist churches supported proposition 8.

But are they catching any heat? No. The people who are up in arms about the LDS church's position in this matter are behaving like the same people who persecuted the Mormons over 100 years ago. They are ignorant and bigoted .

Bottom line:

Proposition 8 passed because more people voted for it than against it.
