Mormon Money Watch: Utah Mormons Gave $159,500 to Yes on 8 Campaign in Last 2 Weeks

LOS ANGELES, CA – The Mormon Power grab continues in California to eliminate same-sex marriage. Some big contributions have come into the Yes on 8 campaign in just the last 2 weeks in $1,000 and over amounts. Utah Mormons have given $159,500 just since October 10th. This represents 52% of the overall total of $307,840 that has come in from Utah Mormon families in over $1,000 increments alone. There have also been thousands of additional dollars in under $1,000 contributions contributed.

There are some well know Mormon names among the major contributors. Carol Smith of Murray, Utah gave $50,000 on October 17th. Jay Clark, a Salt Lake produce dealer gave $25,000 on October 13th. Brent Andrus, owner of Huntington Hotels of Park City, Utah gave $20,000 on October 16th. Katherine Carter of Salt Lake donated $15,500 on October 17th. Francis Magleby of Provo gave $25,000 on October 20th.

The Mormon Church has mobilized its members like never before in their quest to take over the Yes on 8 campaign. On June 20th, three days after same-sex marriage became legal in California, the top leadership in the Church, known as the First Presidency, sent a letter to be read to all Mormons to “do all you can to pass Proposition 8.” The Wall Street Journal reported on September 20th, that church members were told “their souls would be in jeopardy” if they do not donate money.
Peggy Fletcher Stack of the Salt Lake City Tribune did a great story on all the Mormon money coming into the Yes on 8 campaign:

And Rick Jacobs’ Courage Campaign has started a letter writing campaign to Mormon President-Prophet Thomas S. Monson called “Thou Shalt Not Lie.” Here is the link: http://www.couragecampaign.org/page/s/StopTheLies According to their web site; “It is designed to “fight back against the lies and protect fundamental rights of Californians.”

Californians Against Hate will continue to monitor the money and other activities of the Mormon Church during the closing days of the campaign.

  1. The oxymoronic Californians Against Hate is the usual fascist coverup like Hitler pulled, tactics exposed by “The Pink Swastika” at http://www.abidingtruth.com/pfrc/books/pinkswastika/html/the_pinkswastika_4th_edition_-_final.htm

    Your blind cowardly infantile vicious persecution of those who oppose you because, as with typical two-year-old mentality, you might not get your way, proves you unfit for adult society, like cowardly stealing of and shredding Yes on Pro 8 yard signs, afraid of an honest campaign, even (on non Prop 8 matters) threatening the kids of those who have escaped the deadly bogus homoerotic lifestyle (with a near 50% reduction in life expectancy, the bogus “homosex” being an oxymoronic fraud exposed by “The gay invention” at http://touchstonemag.com/archives/article.php?id=18-10-036-f).
    Americans are largely tolerant but will not stand for your continued abuse and lying deceitful sex addict transference claims common to alcoholics that others are guilty of what you are. Former gay rights activist Joe Dallas’s several works (e.g. “The Game Plan,” “Desires In Conflict” and “The Gay Gospel?”) expose the real problem of most Americans, sexual addiction, about which most are in denial and therefore enslaved just like alcoholics, as well as the perversion of Christianity into today’s deadly narcissism that will damn most to a Christless eternal hell. May you read his works or find help toward freedom at http://www.exodus from what honest shrinks know is destroying and may kill you versus the politically correct frauds lying about the “homosex” fraud being OK in our mindless postmodern age of illiterate delusion where nothing is true and they’re so deranged as to hold to the oxymoronic absolute that there are no absolutes!

  2. Russ, I think you and I should form a new group called: Californians Against Californians Against Hate :-)
    Obviously, we don’t hate our fellow Californians who are gay and want to get, for lack of a better term, “civilly united”. They can have that all they want, as long as they don’t come take stuff away from their fellow Californians, like the sacred union between a man and a woman, defined as marriage.
    I have the sneaky feeling that this whole issue isn’t really about civil unions after all…it’s more about taking away from religious institutions what the GLBT community doesn’t have and keeping it for themselves – in other words STEALING. And of course running a crusade against all religious institutions, period.
    I’m also not quite sure why kids in Kindergarten are supposed to learn about a prince marrying another prince…we all know that this never happened in any society. It’s more like, a prince rescues a princess from the evil dragon, and then they get married and live happily ever after.
    C’mon guys, what heck?? You keep telling me that I’m intolerant, while you impose your own sexual orientation on me. If I’d speak for you, I’d be lying and if I speak against you, it’s called hate-speech…. No wonder we have to stop this craziness at it’s roots, or it will get out of hand!! Yes on Prop 8
