News From Californian "Mormon-gate."

The reoccurring theme in some of these stories is the facade the LDS maintains of innocence and victimization.

It reminds me of the news reporter who just happened to be in a woman's dressing room just after the passage of gender inclusive local ordinances. A man dressed in woman clothing bursts in, runs the length of the room invading the women's privacy. Reporter screams "Men in Woman's room" and files a report in hopes of substantiating the transphobic hatemongers ridiculous lies. Not long after the truth becomes apparent. Seems she kinda knew that man. Kinda very well as a matter of fact.

That story died down real fast.

Indeed the LDS is being "targeted" now if transparency of it's legal responsibility is "targeting".

And the Mormon Church should feel indignation that anyone should take exception to "we donated 0" statement when the tip of the iceberg is closer to a Quarter MILLION DOLLARS.

Perhaps the recognition is troublesome of being an individually responsible contributor to the first and hopefully last time equal rights were granted and then taken away from a minority in the United States of America.

Pehaps the LDS is worrying that someone might question what role it plays in deciding what constitutes excessive involvement by Church in State affairs. A intentionally vague and unambiguous boundary at best.

The day after Prop 8 passed, Equality California—on behalf of our members—challenged Prop 8 in the California Supreme Court. On March 5, our case will be heard.

And by being a member of EQCA—the only organizational plaintiff in the case—you are a part of this moment in history.

We know that being out as an LGBT person, or as an advocate for equality, is essential to our fight.

That is why we are asking you to come out in a big way—by adding your name to a scroll of supporters on the homepage of eqca.org.

Take a minute to add your name to publicly show your support for the freedom to marry and for protecting minorities from having their equality put up for a popular vote.

The brilliant attorneys at the National Center for Lesbian Rights, Lambda Legal, ACLU, Munger Tolles and Olson, LLP and the Law Office of David C. Codell have worked tirelessly so we all live in a state where equality can’t be voted away. Now each of us must do our part.

While our opponents try to hide who their supporters are, we can show the world that we are everywhere and are proud to be on the side of equality. Add your name now.

And what about the people you care about and who care about you?

Forward this email to everyone one your list and ask them to become part of this historic moment by joining you. And follow up with at least three personally—tell them why it matters to you that they add their names to the list. And explain that the case is about more than marriage—as important as that is—but is about keeping other minorities from having their rights voted on.

By showing our neighbors, co-workers, family and friends that we are proud to be out in support of the freedom to marry and for the rights of other groups who will be at risk if Prop 8 is allowed to stand—and asking them to join us—we will build a true state of equality here in California.

In solidarity,

Geoff Kors
Executive Director
Equality California
