I found this while watching online news articles on prop 8. I thought this was interesting and wanted to share. Here is the link to the statement put out by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints concerning the protest in Salt Lake City. Here is the link: LDS Statement.

Church Issues Statement on
Prop 8 Protest

It is disturbing that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is being singled out for speaking up

as part of its democratic right in a free election.

Members of the Church in California and millions of others from every faith, ethnicity and political affiliation who voted for Proposition 8 exercised the most sacrosanct and individual rights in the United States — that of free expression and voting.

While those who disagree with our position on Proposition 8 have the right to make their feelings known, it is wrong to target the Church and its sacred places of worship for being part of the democratic process.

Once again, we call on those involved in the debate over same-sex marriage to act in a spirit of mutual respect and civility towards each other. No one on either side of the question should be vilified, harassed or subject to erroneous information.
