Homo Pictures From Today’s Protest
posted by November 9 at 11:01 AMon
Fifty people picketed the Mormon church in Ravenna at 8 AM today to protest LDS-financed attacks on same-sex couples and families.
“Most churchgoers waved while driving or walking by,” writes Chris, who attended this morning’s protest with his wife and daughter. “I hoped for more dialog with churchgoers, but most of them just walked by and said hello. We tried not to get in the way of normal church operations, staying on the sidewalk and not blocking church traffic. We chanted protest slogans (‘2-4-6-8, Churches shouldn’t legislate!’ ‘All families matter!’), and many people driving by were supportive and honked their horns.
“One female churchgoer thanked us profusely for what we were doing before walking in. The other I talked to was a young male concerned that we were making such a strong show of ‘hate’ against the church. He said that he was strongly against prop 8. I asked him what kind of internal dialogs were going on in the church about gay rights. He said that church officials preach that homosexuality is wrong. When pressed, he wouldn’t comment about the contradiction between his beliefs and those of church officials.”
Four out of every five dollars raised for the “Yes on Prop 8” campaign in California was raised by the Mormon church. The Mormon church is, as I said before on Slog, the villain in this piece.
Utah is the new Coors.
