Peaceful Demonstration
Wednesday, Nov 12, 125 Columbus Ave at 65th Street
6:30pm to 8pm

"Tens of thousands of our brothers and sisters are in the streets in California and Salt Lake City and around the country protesting the votes banning same-sex marriage in California. Join them! Make your voices heard right here in New York City...."

"We will tell the Mormon Church how we feel about its relentless campaign to condemn and control our lives. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was, by far, the biggest financer of California's heinous and hateful Proposition 8. The Mormon Church begged their members to donate money to Prop 8, pouring 20 million dollars into the campaign. And their attacks on us didn't start there and aren't about to end. They're plotting right now to bring their money and influence to bear against the LGBT community everywhere in this country, including trying to prevent marriage equality in New York."

It's time for New York to join in!

Mormons have poured their resources into anti-gay initiatives and legislation for over a decade. They contributed $500,000 of $600,000 on the Alaska anti-gay constitutional amendment.  http://www.lds-mormon.com/...  

They directed and perpetrated the Hawaii anti-gay constitutional amendment. http://www.lds-mormon.com/...

Gays and lesbians have been content to leave the Mormons in peace.  Live and let live.  Who knew they were so opposed to gay and lesbian civil rights?  It is time to show the world what malevolent bigots the Mormon leadership are.  Fight them!  Call attention to their political involvement! Tax the Mormon Church!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
