Fresh "Mormongate" Daily Kos diary.
Updates to Fred Karger's FPPC complaint.
New batch of 1995-98 internal LDS documents discussing the church's campaign against marriage equality in Hawaii, including mentions of early discussions re California.
By the way, watch this vid and pay attention to
Debi Hartmann (at the 4:25 mark):
That's Debi. Mormon wife and mother. Former chair of the State Board of Education. In Hawaii.
Debi, it's nice to see a Mormon mom working with your Local 5 union and the Democratic LGBT caucus.
And thank you to the folks in comments who pointed out this excellent Bay Area Reporter online extra: "Marriage opponent regrets past, now supports equality" ...
With the Hawaii Legislature now considering civil unions for same-sex couples, a former leader of the Mormon opposition to same-sex marriage in that state reiterated that she no longer believes what she spent years fighting to defend. Marriage rights, she now says, should be for everyone, though she stops short of actually supporting same-sex marriage.And check out this 2007 Washington Blade article: Change of heart in Hawaii. 2007? OK, so I'm apparently two years late to this story. Oh well.
Throughout a nearly two-hour telephone interview last weekend that was at times emotional, repentant, and remorseful, Debi Hartmann, a former co-chair of an anti-same-sex marriage organization in Hawaii, acknowledged she has come to understand that she was wrong. Marriage rights, she now concludes, should be granted to same-sex couples.
At least Debi's video is burnin' up the toobz. Check this out:
Ha! We're Big in Taiwan. Take that, MormonTV!
