We're so upset about those four California judges issuing a ruling on California law that
we're gonna enlist Mormons from outside California in our effort to reassert the will of California voters.
Or something like that.
Young Mormons "Go Viral" for the Yes on 8 Campaign
How much would you like to bet that I've got more years of actual marriage experience than all these kids combined?
On the other hand, I'm sure they've all got much more actual campaign experience than I do.
For example, Jill "My name is Jill" Newell is Operations Co-Chair for Santa Monica for the Yes on 8 campaign,
as part of her PR/PA internship at the LA Public Affairs office of the LDS church.
Hi, Jill. My name is Chino and I think it must be nice to get paid
and/or earn invaluable career experience in exchange for getting on camera and
expressing your personal view of Prop 8 based on your deeply held Mormon beliefs.
Considering the Yes on 8 campaign's insistence on identifying Richard Peterson as a Pepperdine law professor in its ads,
I wonder why the campaign chose not to identify you as a Yes on 8 operative in this one?
Do you understand how not identifying yourself clearly to viewers might be construed by some as willful deception?
Then again, what's denying marriage to a few thousand California parents compared to your career opportunities?
Mormon Apostle David Bednar Tries to Explain Why He Opposes Marriage Equality
Bednar: If we fail to remain steadfast in our intolerance we risk a "tyranny of tolerance"
that perhaps maybe might possibly someday threaten us with the same kind of discrimination
we're so eager to enforce right now against our own scary-yet-beloved gay brothers and sisters.
I mean, who knows? Better safe than sorry, right?
That stuff in our Constitution about how freedom of religion is safe in this country?
Ignore it. Let
Me: Huh? Apparently it doesn't matter that the taped remarks are incoherent and inscrutable
as long as you've got an "Internet guy" promising your campaign a million page views.
Our Mormon Youth: Huh? Sounds like an authority figure saying it's not discrimination. Dynamite!
I'm rubber, you're glue
