Mormons Who Hate Butt Sex

Mercury News in California recently did an article about how the Mormon church has contributed 8.4 million dollars to promote Prop 8 in California. The proposition if passed, would add a state constitutional amendment defining marriage between a man and a woman. Interesting that a religious group that spent much of its time fighting for religious freedom is spending so much effort in fighting for restricting the freedoms of others. But then again, I guess that is what most religion is about.

Having spent some time in Utah and touring around Salt Lake City, I would equate the Mormons more to a cult than I would a religious order, I do think it's interesting that they are spending so much money on an initiative in California. You'd think they would prefer to spend that kind of money changing the Utah state constitution to define marriage as between a man and as many women as he wants. After all, it's not like they wanted to change their religious beliefs to support the one man, one woman idea. The only reason they changed it, was in 1890 they renounced polygamy so that they could receive acceptance as a state into the union in 1896.
