    why are they chanting yes we can when obama clearly said at that time that he didnt support gay marriage?

    I wish someday they will accept Jesus in their hearts. Our Heavenly father loves them. They need to know that,

    I was there. Little 11-year-old me was out waving a Yes on 8 sign with the rest of them on the street. I didn't really understand what it meant for the people it would affect. Later it would become a big part of why I decided to leave the church. #uptometobecultfree

    The Mormons didn't do anything the sexually confused homosexual community hadn't done to continue their immoral perversion. California didnt vote just once but TWICE to ban the sick lifestyle. So this attempt to blame the Mormons is a very desperate and sick attempt to nullify the FACT that Californians voted TWICE to ban the evil abnormal chosen lifestyle. How evil is it to force a lifestyle upon society when society voted against it? Maybe 23,000 wouldn't have died from imitation sex in San Francisco alone!!!! Maybe MORALITY is on the wrong side of perverted history but it will ultimately be on the right side of eternity.

    I think the gay community should pay people to watch "The Lost Book of Abraham", that documentary shows that Joseph Smith is a total fraud.  Mormons are Bat Shit Crazy and that documentary exposes how much of a fraud their religion is. If the Mormons want a fight, why doesn't the gay community fight back. Just a little bit of knowledge about the Mormon religion by the general public, should be enough the expose how awful the Mormon religion is. Instead of a Gay Pride day, how about an Expose Mormons Day?

    Mormon cult is an abomination to all love and humanity. Spread the word. Racism, homophobia, sexism, polygamy, pedophilia. *#mormoncult*

    It's really sad just how many people in the United States insist living a bronze aged mentality, whilst so desperately clinging to ridiculous traditions and an appeal to popularity, rather than using reason, and doing what is morally right, and learning from past mistakes. Why are so many individuals scared of equal rights? What bothers me even more, is that people are listening to a cult (probably because they too believe Jesus visited America), who teaches that a known fraud named Joseph Smith, was visited by angels who gave him special golden plates, that only he could decipher by putting rocks into a hat that nobody else was allowed to see whilst wearing special underwear that protected him from Satan . These are the same bunch of people who believe if a black person turns Mormon, their skin will begin to lighten up!! People seriously listen to these people? Is it because Mormons aren't allowed to play sport on, or children allowed to play on Sundays that they hold such a grudge to society? Maybe it's the lack of caffeine in their diet, or the fact that Jesus never came in the year 2000 as they believed he would, so now they just want to take it out on gays instead of owning up to the fact that they are insane and in need of copious amounts of medication and therapy. So glad I don't live over there, but still, a person wonders what the fuck is wrong with religious folk, and when will people begin to move away from fables and superstition, and wake up to reality, and grant equal rights for all.

    It's said how people in the 21st century, the descendants people escaping religious persecution feel it's alright to take away the rights of others because of their beliefs.
  • PoliteTimesplitter 2013-10-19 14:21:39
    "All we wanted was to protect our rights because if it would have passed we would be forced to marry gays in our meeting houses or temples" I am so, so sorry that you are illiterate and braindead.

    There's no place in the 21st century for religion. Fight it

    Mormons lost so happy for it
  • Forrest Munden 2013-08-22 19:26:10
    Atheists need to come together and start spending some money to fight this crap!
  • shaylen sanders 2013-08-22 04:43:51
    There is no such thing as "ex-gays".... It's simply a change of conduct... They're still gay... That's a misconception that needs to be purged. Being gay is not a choice.
  • Seth Johnson 2013-07-14 02:59:32
    I'm a gay ex mormon and as much as I don't like the church, there are a lot of mormons that are in support of marriage equality and most of the church members don't hate gay people, but just don't believe they should be together. They aren't as hateful as they are portrayed in this movie.

    Prop 8: Biggest waste of money since Gay Conversion Therapy.
  • Peter Fish 2013-06-30 02:00:41
    Mormons spent over 22 million dollars to pass Prop 8. Religious fanatics trying to influence our beautiful state... I'm a straight married man and I support the LGBT community!
  • Dramapony 2013-06-29 21:32:31
    Not everyone believes what you believe. No one said the Mormons HAD to marry LGBT people in their churches. When the church passed prop 8, they weren't being fair; they were forcing their beliefs on those who didn't agree with them. The original marriage equality law of '08 passed fair and square, and it looked like the church was being a bunch of sore losers. Haven't you ever heard of the separation of Church and State?
  • Dramapony 2013-06-29 21:24:27
    No, I'm pretty sure that's an accurate definition of what YOU are.
  • Sophia Gelsey 2013-06-16 17:56:01
    Whew! That was intense, It almost made me cry for many conflicting reasons. I want to see this! I say, let the people decide. Let the votes fall where they may. That is how to equally and fairly make laws, even social laws. Unfortunately someone has to lose.
