I just finished reading this from the LDS "Newsroom" ...
Which reminded me that I'd previously written Maurine Proctor (editor of an influential Mormon mag) back in August about some of the stuff that Meridian (her mag) was putting out there in support of Prop 8 ... and that she'd replied with an article by Roger Severino, legal counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty.
The same Becket (of recent No Mob Veto fame) and Ballard (of Mormon Apostolic fame) who were BFF long before they recently started whining about our post-election actions.
Which led me to mutter to myself: enough with the Kabuki, Ballard.
As if Stop The Mormons hadn't long since put together the definitive timeline re your shenanigans.
Religions claim to be the authority for how we live our lives. They claim this authority from God. Most religious organizations depend on donations from their faithful believers in order to stay in business. There are all sorts of religions, claiming to speak for / to God. Their business model consists of being paid to tell people what to do in life. Their revenue stream is tied directly to their credibility as a source of right-living advice. If people allowed to make up their own minds about their sexuality, then they are likely make up their own minds about a whole lot of things. This is what scares gay-bashing religions most of all.
