Protests have organized in opposition to religious entanglement involving the removal of civil rights and Proposition 8. Hopefully, protests will continue to grow in size and frequency. Keep the passion burning!
There's a rumor that the Sundance Film Festival will be moved from Utah in response to the Mormon Church's political solicitation and support for anti-gay propaganda in California. I hope this rumor becomes reality; there's nothing like hitting bigots where it hurts, right in the money bags.
Not surprisingly, the Catholic Church has come forward with a message of solidarity with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (that's the church that believes in polygamy, magic underwear, and dark skin as a punishment from God.)
"Catholics stand in solidarity with our Mormon brothers and sisters in support of traditional marriage-the union of one man and one woman-that has been the major building block of Western Civilization for millennia." -Bishop William Weigand
Representatives from both churches are now complaining about the ire they have raised against their own organizations of bigotry and inequality. I think Nicole Belle offers the appropriate response:
Sorry, LDS and Catholic Churches, let me pull out my tiny violin for you. You have used the tenets of your faith to infringe upon my secular government to take away rights from people, and I'm supposed to feel bad that protests are targeting you? I just don't think so.
I say keep up the protests! It helped suffragettes, it helped black civil rights activists, and it can help the progressive movement again!
