Chuck Colson, Bill Marriott & Mormon Elders Cook, Ballard and Wickman throw a party for NOM’s Robert P. George.

 

Check out the VIPs at the Annual Canterbury Medal Dinner.

 

Jeremy has a backgrounder.

 

For your viewing pleasure, here’s an excerpt from NOM Chairman Robby George’s talk at BYU, titled “Utah will be whipped into line.” Enjoy:

Did you catch Robby’s Civil War comparison? Good grief. He’s a lunatic. And he’s got the ear of the LDS leadership.

I actually know some of these people: Bill Marriott was my stake president for years and Ralph Hardy was our family's home teacher.  Hardy was later the stake president when I was released from my mission.  His wife Carole looks great--I wonder if she's had surg...

 

Poor Mr. Marriott.  Trying to please his church, trying not to alienate customers.  It's a hard, hard life...

 

Edited to add: and here are Presidents Marriott and Hardy photographed partying with imbibers.  The appearance of evil, brothers, the appearance of evil...

 

 

Alright, peeps.  I've been on long enough, and have been spouting off way too much...time to get some sleep before the day begins in earnest....

This is currently on the front page diary list at Daily Kos.

If anyone can spare a rec and tip over there, it'll help promote the diary and help me push this story.

Back in the fall of 2008, I met with my SP to voice my discent over the whole prop8 thing. He told me that in a training meeting with Ballard, that they were told by Elder Ballard that stopping the "gay agenda" and gay marriage was the church's top priority. I was really shocked by that. Wars, hunger, poverty, enviromental and economic problems cover the earth and Ballard had the perspective that stopping the gays is God's top priority? WTF! Of course my SP thought it was the most important thing as well, proving that the middle managers in the church have no thoughts of their own.

Hey Sleight of Hand,

 

Can I quote you anonymously (I'd like to copy-and-paste your comment into my post)?  I wouldn't mention where I found it.

You sure can. I wouldn't mind if you did say where you found it, it would still be anonymous.

makes me distrust mormonism even more than it already does!

"gay agenda" = equal rights...

 

Orson Scott Card was one of my favorite authors... I feel like I've been punched in the gut.. I loved his books... what a bigot piece of crap.

Were Ballard and Cook complimentary guests, or did the church spend tithing money on their $1000 meals?

 

Quite the story, with devoted, obedient church members in third world countries going to bed hungry many nights.

 

Mr George's remarks at BYU were quite offensive, especially his attempt to bring Abraham Lincoln in on the side of the bigots.  Lincoln's line about a state not being able to survive "half slave and half free," if applied to Gay marriage, actually undercuts George's message.  Denying civil rights to Gays is analogous to supporting slavery.  I'm sure Lincoln never imagined the US would someday become all slave.  He dedicated his life to seeing slavery done away with.

 

Likewise, someday in the future marriage between Gays will be legal throughout the US, and little minds like Robby George will have been forgotten, as have most pre-civil war promoters of slavery.
