HRC Delivers 150K Petitions To LDS

Clip description via YouTube vlogger Dave Evans:
National gay rights activists on Tuesday delivered a petition letter carrying 150,000 signatures to the Mormon church following an address given by President Boyd K. Packer, a Church Apostle. The Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest gay civil rights organization, collected the signatures after an e-mail alert to members and supporters 20 percent of whom are not lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. The response to the alert is the largest in HRC history. The petition letter and signatures were delivered in an 800-page stack to the church's downtown Salt Lake City office building by HRC President Joe Solmonese and leaders from Utah's gay community and a gay Mormon support group.
