Nate and I found this interesting site one night. Mormonsfor8.com has a list of all the lds contributors that donated to Yes on Prop 8. I think it is important to note that when the news states that the lds church has donated such and such amount it's not coming from church tithe or welfare funds. This is all non-tax deductible contributions from individual members wanting to specifically support an effort that coincides with the church teachings about the family unit. Those donations were used to finance media coverage and yard signs. Isn't it a pity that those yard signs weren't available until this week when the other sides have been up since August. Why is that? Well we found out that "No" used a large portion of their funding to bribe the manufacturing contacts. The excuse was that the signs had never arrived when in reality they were sitting in a garage. I am not angry just disappointed in the other side's lack of integrity.
