NO on 8
Community Gathering Event
Sunday, November 9th
1:00 - 5:00 PM
The Church in Ocean Park
235 Hill Street  
Santa Monica  90405

Community, Food, Rock and Roll Music, Dancing
We are having this event for at least these reasons:

We have to do something
 The faith community is helping to marginalize a group of people for being who they are.  That is not okay.  And, we are way too silent in the face of bigotry masquerading as religion.
 The women in this band are incredible musicians and even better people.  
We are all hurting.  
This gives us all a venue to express ourselves.

You are invited to come and encouraged to spread the word.

Hit them where it will hurt

The Mormon church should lose it's tax exempt status as a result of pouring over 70 million dollars into a political issue. At the very least, the government should tax the 70 mil. If we really want to hit them where it will do the most good, Americans should be pressing the government to remove the exemption. That goes for any religion that tries to influence a political issue. It makes me sick to think of the huge numbers of people the Mormons could have fed or clothed, or helped with high heating oil costs this next winter. Instead, they chose to fund a political measure to strip people of rights.

Re: Prop 8 Protests,Rallies and Meetings. UNITE!

The core point of these rallies should be to organize people for 2010 as Obama did with his rallies rather than just have people showing up. I've read reports that nothing is coming of these meetings- is this true?

Re: Prop 8 Protests,Rallies and Meetings. UNITE!

The Mormon Church did not donate over $70 million to the Yes on 8 campaign.  The church itself didn't donate any money at all.  In fact, the entire Yes on 8 campaign only received about $36 million.  The No on 8 campaign raised $38 million. You can check out the statistics on the LA Times website at the following link:

http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-mon eymap,0,2198220.htmlstory

Individual members of the Mormon Church, as well as Catholics, Episcopalians, Jews, and other Protestant faiths contributed to the Yes on 8 fund, just as many individuals of these faiths donated to the No on 8 side.

It is untrue and unfair to claim that the Mormons "bought" the Yes on 8 win.  There are only 250,000 Mormon adults living in California, and it is estimated that at least one out of every five Mormons voted No on 8.

Re: Prop 8 Protests,Rallies and Meetings. UNITE!

And believe me...Mormons, Jews, Protestants, and Catholics will still be feeding huge numbers of homeless and needy people, providing career counselling to those out of work, helping with basic household expenses, giving rides to those without cars, helping with medical needs, and working in afterschool programs for latchkey children, among many other worthy service opportunities.  

What exactly are your protests accomplishing for the good of others?  How wonderful it would be if you all organized to do something good, you know, pick up litter along the streets or collect canned foods to deliver to homeless shelters.  Think how much power you would have for good if you organized for those kinds of purposes!
