Mormon Church Supports Marriage Amendment In California

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints sent a letter to all California congregations. The letter asks that California Mormons do all they can to support the California Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. "The church's teachings and position on this moral issue are unequivocal," the letter reads. "Marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God, and the formation of families is central to the creator's plan for his children. Children are entitled to be born within this bond of marriage."

The First Presidency asked "that you do all you can to support the proposed constitutional amendment by donating of your means and time to assure that marriage is legally defined as being between a man and a woman." How will Mormons in California react to the First Presidency's call to "do all you can" to support the proposed state constitutional amendment? Will they rise up to the challenge? This amendment is a moral battle that will be fought in the court of law. I'm glad there are so many excellent Mormon Lawyers in California who will fight tooth and nail to protect the sanctity of marriage. Because after all...."As California goes, the rest of the nation goes."
