Mormon church enters Calif. gay marriage fight

By JENNIFER DOBNER, Associated Press Writer Tue Jun 24, 4:13 AM ET

SALT LAKE CITY – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is asking California members to join the effort to amend that state’s constitution to define marriage as being between a man and a woman.

A letter sent to Mormon bishops and signed by church president Thomas S. Monson and his two top counselors calls on Mormons to donate “means and time” to the ballot measure. A note on the letter dated June 20 says it should be read during church services on June 29, but the letter was published Saturday on several Web sites.

Church spokesman Scott Trotter said Monday that the letter was authentic. He declined further comment, saying the letter explains the church’s reasons for getting involved.

The LDS church will work with a coalition of churches and other conservative groups that put the California Marriage Protection Act on the Nov. 4 ballot to assure its passage, the letter states.;_ylt=AuDgZuGlbKKEce_xzPxwtS1H2ocA

I would have posted the letter but the Mormon church threatened to sue if

didn’t take down their links to it immediately.

I did manage to find it here though. 

Here’s the memo to the church, ( )

which will be read to all members in California next Sunday.
