The Church of Latter-day Saints on Support for California Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act
February 5, 2013
On the contrary, our members supported Proposition 8 based on sincere beliefs in the value of traditional marriage for children, families, society, and our republican form of government. Only a demeaning view of religion and religious believers could dismiss our advocacy of Proposition 8 as ignorance, prejudice, or animus.
