MINNESOTA: Mormon Church Issues Letter Urging Marriage "Defense"

Minnesota's Mormons were read a letter at church services this weekend in which they were urged to take part in the coming ballot campaign against same-sex marriage. Via Q Salt Lake:
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints read a letter to all Minnesota wards on Sunday, Jan. 15 reminding church-goers that “the family is the fundamental unit of society” and urged them to re-read the “Proclamation of the Family,” which begins, “We, the First Presidency and the Council of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children.” Church members were also asked to “prayerfully consider how to get involved,” according to the author of the blog, Key Lime Piety. The letter “concluded with a reminder that church buildings and directories are not to be used for political purposes – with this caveat: unless otherwise directed,” the article continued
The chief legislative proponent of the amendment resigned her state Senate majority leader post in shame last month when she was exposed for having an adulterous affair with a subordinate. Our side should plaster her photo on every single page of materials for the campaign. (Tipped by JMG reader Michael)
