Congrats on your nicely written piece and for your efforts for our freedom. As I drove around SD county, it was interesting to see the differences in protests. Lots of Yes on 8 up in North Co. and more No's in the city of course reflecting the conservation and liberal communities. How many Yes voters have a child who is gay? Who really gives a damn who I marry? I hope you continue to fight for our freedom, thanks.
I know two other former Mormons who got around to formally resigning from the church over the exact same issues.
I wonder if any journalist out there is tracking this story...how many Mormons have resigned in the last month?
Keep up the good work, Mindy.
Fred, I'm sure historians and sociologists are chronicling Prop 8 and its aftermath as we speak and will for a long time to come. (What a sad turn of events.) Anyone who's hoping it's not too late to protest locally can check out Light Up the Night for Equality at http://www.sdequalitynow.com/events/event/show?id=2488888%3AEvent%3A1394 Next event is Sat., Dec. 20.
mindy, thanks for your support for no on 8, but i wonder why you're allowing this to be posted on the reader website when its publisher, jim holman, was a supporter of prop 8? see:
jim also did (and does?) not allow gay business advertisements or personals in the reader. meanwhile, your blog post is surrounded by reader ads that provide financial revenue to holman, who has started and funded several anti-abortion choice ballot initiatives. please reconsider your support of the reader via your blog publishing on its site.
