Thousand people protest outside Mormon Temple in LA


A good 1,000 people, by my estimate, are currently protesting outside the gates of the Mormon Temple in Los Angeles. This is in response to the Mormons bankrolling Proposition 8, which just revoked the marriages of nearly 20,000 gay newlyweds in California, instantly making their children bastards. I think the Mormons, and Utah more generally, have created a massive public relations disaster for themselves. The Mormon church has for years been bankrolling hateful and bigoted efforts to block civil rights legislation in various states. This time, it appears they finally went too far.
